CHRISTIAN ROTH EYEWEAR &
THE DECONSTRUCTED BAUHAUS:


A RE-EXAMINATION OF
MODERNIST
DESIGN

CARDBOARD COMPOSITIONS




Since the founding of the movement, no other
style in architecture and design has influenced
culture like the Bauhaus has – both in style
and philosophy.

From modernism to the avant-garde, the
‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ - the concept of combining
the artistic disciplines of architecture, sculpture,
painting, typography – with craft and engineering
under the credo “Form follows function” has
become the hallmark under which the majority of
the creative and engineering world has operated
since the founding of the movement in the 1920’s.
The Bauhaus philosophy has produced artisans
and designers capable of creating useful and
beautiful objects for a new way of living.

Fast forward almost 100 years, and design is one
of the worlds most important and least understood
shapers of culture and perception today. But to
appreciate it you must know what to look for- how
to ‘read’ culture. As these visual codes have been
combined, melded and reformed, we get the sense
hat the aesthetic has evolved completely.

Deconstructed Bauhaus is a response to this
evolution. It sights aesthetic ideas born of combining
codes rich with history and meaning yet completely
transformed and reworked in response to the speed
of technology and the reinterpretation of a new
generation. Frame structures made of steel and glass
can become over or undersized, acetates are
re-interpreted and even ideas of the function of
lenses and frames can be reconsidered.
