Design by system: Eine Studie des Rasters als Prinzip der Ordnung.

This publication deals with 20 objects of the 20th century, in which grid, order and system were at the heart of the design process. The collection is composed of objects from the fields of architecture, graphic design, industrial design, painting, and type design, which stand out due to an exceptional idea or solution. Texts and illustrations reveal fundamental structures, highlight historical and ideological trends, and open up contextual links that – contrasted with the opinions of contemporary designers – paint a complex picture of the multi-layered creative grammar that usually occurs unnoticed and invisible.
