With its everyday presence the weather is such a natural part of our lives, yet we hardly ever think about its influence on design. The clothing we wear depends on the weather, it influences our mood and directs our decisions and actions, both small and large. That’s why we’ve decided to take a look at the inextricable link between weather and design in form 278.

Weather

Text: Stephan Ott

The design duo Doshi Levien recently made an astonishing statement. In an interview with the online magazine DEAR, Nipa Doshi said: “[…] I don’t like the idea that design must solve problems. In my view, that’s a task for doctors, lawyers, and consultants. […] Be it designers or architects, I think everyone designs things to make something beautiful.” And, as if to rule out any lingering misunderstandings, Jonathan Levien added: “As an architect, you don’t solve problems, you define spaces. […] Of course this may improve things and create good functions, but primarily it’s about a creative process and good design – that’s the motivation.”

Designing Multilinguality

Text: Giovanna Reder

Translation: Emily J. McGuffin

Typography is a coded form of language. We use it to relay, capture, and visualise information. Yet the understanding of such information is dependent not only upon the recipient, but also upon the sender as well as upon the way it is presented.

Vom Regentanz zum Hagelflieger

Text: Sascha Pohflepp

Translation: Nicholas Grindell

Humans have placed a thin layer of technology between themselves and nature: architecture, clothing, shared reserves. But we have never escaped the direct impact of the forces of nature. Extreme weather events have always been part of the reality of human life.

“Rap Is Gonna Give Us the Space Back”

 

Text: Stephan Ott

Translation: Iain Reynolds

“Rap Is Gonna Give Us the Space Back” 2019 marks the centenary of the Bauhaus school and it’s an anniversary that already looms large. Not only are the historic Bauhaus cities of Weimar, Dessau, and Berlin gaining a trio of new museums, 2018 has already seen a host of exhibitions, conferences, and publications that further emphasise just how high a profile the Bauhaus still has.

2017 marked the 60th anniversary of form, a milestone that has prompted us to stop and take stock. In particular, we were revisiting a specific article, reader’s letter, image, cover, etc. from each of the magazine’s six decades to date.
