LDF 2012: NEW MODERNism

Last year during the London Design Festival (LDF), there was a fantastic exhibition called Postmodernism: Style & Subversion 1970–1990 at the Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A). Postmodernism came at a very important moment for established, back then new, ideas about style and brought a radical freedom to art and design. For a few thrilling years, image and colour meant everything. Influences of Postmodernism were prominently present during the Milano Design Week 2012.

Amazingly, this year’s MODERNISM was the most important influence on design. I can even say that there was more about British Modernism. The British “super banality and over-functional” design fits perfectly into the purity of the modernistic new “industrial craft” approach that we all saw during the  brilliant London 2012 Olympics opening with an ode to the British Empire’s industrial achievements. I really liked this new kind of Modernism with its strong sentiments.
