A short Lower East visit at Museum für Gestalting, the design museum in Zürich. Switzerland’s leading design and visual communication museum. While the main building are being renovated, all activities are placed in the Schaudepot.
The museum is always worth a visit! Next very interesting exhibition will be “Stefan Sagmeister. My Collection“. Opening in October 2017.

The Bauhaus-Archiv Museum in Berlin just had a new corporate identity, created by the Stuttgart-based design agency L2M3.
New website, new typeface, new logo – and this absolute wonderful quartet of posters; Oskar Schlemmer’s “Triadic Ballet”, Marcel Breuer’s world-famous tubular steel chair, the building of the Bauhaus-Archiv – a work by Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius and Marianne Brandt’s tea infuser and strainer.
Lower East visited Museum für Gestaltung in Zürich the other day. Enjoying the exhibition “100 Years of Swiss Graphic Design“. Really cool work; high quality, simple solutions, good focus on typography and on precision.
Extract from the museums website; “The view of one hundred years of graphic design shows both the diversity of current visual communication as well as the fine lines of tradition that connect works from different epochs. Alongside the poster and smaller items of printed matter, the show also includes outstanding examples from advertising and information graphics, typography, signage or book design, design objects that relate to graphic design, as well as selected striking advertising spots, and works for web design. Many objects come from the museum’s own collection”.
