Josef + Anni Albers: Designs for LivingPopular EPub, Josef Anni Albers Designs For Living By Nicholas Fox Weber This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book Josef Anni Albers Designs For Living, Essay By Nicholas Fox Weber Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please Read And Make A Refission For You I must admit to having become totally irritated with Nicholas Fox Weber His fawning and gossipy writing is merely amusing and slightly annoying when first encountered, but since he is the expert often called on to comment on the Bauhaus, and particularly Josef and Anni Albers, it s all become a bit too much as I continue to read about them.So that definitely colored my reception of the Cooper Hewitt exhibition catalog Both Josef s glass work and Anni s weavings at the Bauhaus started in a loose and colorful way, and evolved to become almost interchangeable, stark, minimalist, grid based designs Although they never officially collaborated, it s very hard to divide the influence from the influenced Both liked the idea of mass produced goods Josef was an inventive furniture designer, using plywood in a simple, striking, and utilitarian way Anni s manufactured fabrics anonymous, practical, often synthetic have less appeal to me than her distinctive woven room dividers.I m not sure how either Anni s fun industrial jewelry or Josef s very Bauhaus inspired graphic design fit into the
