Your Biggest Influence?

Recommended Posts

Guest der.kleine.prinz

i think it was the designers from bauhaus, because it was the period i was most interested when i was at school. i also wrote a special work for my final exam about it. i like the way they broke conventions and their radical new way and the pragmatism (correct english?) behind their thoughts and products.

Bauhaus inspire me in that it created fresh approaches, challenged the paradigm of the time. They put desire and creativity at the forefront of design. We owe them a lot!!!

 

Papanek is inspirational for me. His ideals we all should aim for in our selves and what we produce!

Never really thought much of Papenek to be honest, found a lot he said rather dull and never really ignited any passion in me from what he was saying.

 

I find the work of Alvin Toffler quite influencing, especially his book 'Future Shock' from 1970 I think. He predicited the future of western society extremerly precisely!
