Johannes Molzahn Wohnung und Werkraum (Dwelling and Workplace) (Poster for Deutsche Werkbund Exhibition in Breslau) 1929

  • Not on view

Standardization, objectivity, and impersonal form characterized modernist architecture, interiors, and graphic design. For the exhibition Wohnung und Werkraum (Living and work space) in Breslau, Molzahn designed an integrated campaign in which different types of printed matter–posters, brochures, letterheads, labels, stamps–affirmed the overriding identity of the event.
