Die Kunst ist der Evolutionsbefehl. Die Kunst ist frei von jeder Ideologie. Die Kunst entmachtet jede Nicht-Kunst. Die Kunst ist Totalstspielkindstum. Die Kunst ist unbesiegbarste Macht. Kunst ist der Chef. Kunst ist die Nummer Eins. Geometric imagery, constructivist patterns, three-dimensional detailed forms, abstract surrealist line constructions, glowing primary colours and strong colour contrasts point to a popularised modernity. Although the Werkbund artist Heinrich Vogeler sought to follow the demand for simple and cheap furnishings, his furniture still opposes the Werkbund aesthetic.
The simple form was not enough in itself and the handcraft-like ornament reads as if it is trying to hide its machine manufacture. This becomes particularly clear in comparison with the machine-made furniture program by Richard Riemerschmid of , which with regard to its machine manufacture with high standards and simple, functional form design is exemplary for Werkbund design.
New techniques and materials defined the chair designs of the 20s in construction and appearance. In general, hand-made chairs with an industrial air may be differentiated from those which were industrially produced, but have a traditional handcrafted aesthetic.

The material aesthetic of wood and steel tubing is the most important in this differentiation. In the Chair B 64 designed in by Marcel Breuer, the machine and laboratory aesthetic of the steel tubing is softened by the cane work covering so-called Wiener Geflecht and the bentwood frame of the seat and back rest. A symbiosis occurred between the technically contemporary and the historically established as these Thonet trademarks were integrated into the design. Off with national kitsch! Good taste should be shown in, for example, handcrafted, simple furniture. The Werkbund itself was integrated into the Reichskulturkammer Reich Chamber of Culture in and was dissolved in Protocol Werkbund meeting Improvised production, in private handicraft or from small businesses, for the provisional need for consumer goods in and after the end of WW2 was not taken up by the general Werkbund members in the form Redslob suggested.
This collection area is nevertheless integrated here, as the enforced simplicity and practicality of the emergency products certainly influenced perceptions of taste in the post-war period. The exhibitions in which the Werkbund took part after were quite in the spirit of reconstruction. Neues Wohnen New living and Wie wohnen?
How should we live? The theme was amongst others the quality of industrial production, now abundantly used.
Honesty, cleanliness and decency were called for. The material diversity and characteristics of plastic have advanced it in the past years to the most used of all materials. As a compound material, unlike wood, glass or metal, it can rather be understood as a collective term for almost endless material variations and may be composed according to demand. No other material has yet been so widely used and been the stuff of so many dreams. The potential of the material overtakes the possible uses through the development of new production processes, but also gives design new tasks with regard to called-for ecological sustainability.
There was a critical attitude towards trade as place for fashion trends in the early Werkbund and thus an area which was difficult to influence or control. He attempted to make rational aspects the deciding factors for a product, wanted to give people orientation in the product jungle and in the fight against arbitrary commodity fetishes.

Scarce raw material resources and the world ecological situation set the only limits. Two collections are compared here, both anchored in the 50s. Wagenfeld did nevertheless design industry forms during his whole lifetime and make objects for notable companies. Among these are mass-produced objects which became trademarks, and objects which became guidelines for design and were still being produced 70 years after their initial creation. The tea and coffee pots, salt and pepper shakers, drinking glasses, bowls, vases, ceiling and wall lamps, inkwells and egg cups are typical objects of their time, which above all demonstrate artistic responsibility.
It initiated the new edition of the Deutschen Warenkunde together with the Werkbund. A no less ambitious project was the setting up of an archive with around slides which documented current good form, but also historical series und kitsch. The objects which were to be sent abroad as ambassadors of the young democracy should not be spectacular but functional, unpretentious and modest.
With the start of the economic miracle in West Germany, decorative furnishing elements such as vases and bowls helped to make things beautiful once more and confirm regained prosperity. It was named Pregnant Louise after the factory slang and, after a hesitant reception, quickly reached extraordinary popularity and helped the breakthrough of asymmetrical design in West Germany.
Just as widespread were wire containers for pretzels, salt sticks, serviettes and bottles which defined the party culture of the 50s and expressed a new understanding of representation. The principle of mobility and permeability of the wire structures seemed to break through the cramped conditions of the average flat and the weight of historical destiny. The reform of the Werkbund company began with these objects.
Within just a few months all the products from shavers to kitchen machines were technically reworked and formally brought into line along with corporate identity. The obligation to ethical principles such as honesty and humanity in production were mirrored in the design maxims of order, harmony and frugality.
With this new face Braun stepped onto the victory train, receiving many honours, through international design exhibitions into the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Good furniture should be simple, functional, flexible and good value for money. Originally conceived as a trade fair gag, it developed into a sinfully expensive success in the economic miracle West Germany. The old Werkbund question, How should we live? The Werkbund saw a chance to apply maxims which they had developed as early as the 20s for a modern living culture.
One saw functional furniture everywhere in small and even tiny flats in new tower blocks, in which the majority of German people now installed themselves. The interior design advice centres were a novelty.

The interested visitor could develop floor plans here with professional help. There were materials available, from wallpaper patterns to tea sets, exemplary interiors and exhibitions of good design. The Berlin advice centre was a child of Interbau.

It became clear that the subject of living in the 50s was morally highly charged, at the latest with the model apartments presented here in and the aim of the special exhibition die stadt von morgen the city of tomorrow. It has been a tradition to bring back exotic objects ever since people have travelled. Every landmark in the world has been made in series in every size and material conceivable ever since industrialisation. The appropriation of the serial product remains individual however, and souvenirs have their own particular worth in the context of personal experience and memory.
