The UNO design team took some time out this week to view the Ulm School of Design at RMIT university. The exhibition, which opened on the 1st of August looks at Ulm design. Included in the exhibition was the Braun record player created by Dieter Rams & Hans Gugelot, 1956 (shown above with our beautiful product design team), an iconic piece in the industrial design landscape.
From 1953 until it closed in 1968 the Ulm School of Design (Hochschule für Gestaltung or HfG) was one of the world’s most important contemporary design academies.
Regarded as being second only to the Bauhaus, the Ulm exhibit reflected the spirit of change in Germany in the post-war years, and revolutionised artistic and architectural thinking and production.
The exhibition was assembled by the Hochschule für Gestaltung Archive, a department of the Ulm Museum, to mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Ulm School of Design, and IFA (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen) the German institute for international cultural relations.
