Sebastian König : Legacy of Bauhaus education

Editorial

Commissioned | Professional

Brief:
I had to to draw three full page illustrations for the Bauhaus now magazine. The illustrations were intended to tell a visual story along the article which featured german universities, that are build upon the the legacy of the Bauhaus education. The artwork had to show a modern aspect of todays studies and had the formal approach to have "zoom in" effect over the 6 pages of the article.
Additional Information:
My idea was a contemporary interpretation of three iconic Bauhaus images. The famous painting by Oskar Schlemmer, the woman on the Wassily-chair and the classic Bauhaus Logo were combined with contemporary technologies such as drones, virtual reality and 3D-printing in an educational context. The overall style was heavily influenced by typical Bauhaus colors and shapes.
