The FOOTPATROL X BAUHAUS 100 CAPSULE pays homage to the pioneering design school’s centenary year…
Founded way back in 1919 by Walter Gropius, the Bauhaus school of art and design only functioned in Weimar Germany for 14 years but it has most certainly left a lasting impression on the creative realm, with its influence reaching into furniture, architecture, and beyond. London retailer Footpatrol celebrates 100 years of the movement with two t-shirts that pinpoint the school’s central figures.
The ‘Principles’ Tee shows the conceptual diagram showing the structure of teaching at the that was developed by Gropius in 1922, with a 3M Footpatrol Gasmask logo and the iconic shed-roof silhouette of the archives building in Berlin taking to the chest. Secondly, the more colourfully inclined ’Structures’ Tee focuses on designs from a pioneer of modern typography, graphic design, and advertising, Herbert Bayer, who studied painting Wassily Kandinsky before being appointed master of the art school’s printing and advertising workshop in 1925. He was responsible for establishing a lower-case sans-serif typeface as the default font for all their publications, amongst many other new design principles.
