The Aubock workshop has been in business for just over 100 years, and this volume is a partial catalog of their work. The founder began working from a late Art-Nouveau style with greater inflection by the Art Deco style as time went on, but the succeeding generations of the family, beginning with his son, were strongly influenced by the Bauhaus school; indeed two generations either attended the interwar Bauhaus campus, or worked to varying degrees with Bauhaus alumni in the United States. Walter Gropius is mentioned more than once, and this approach shows in the body of work. The designs are clean, unpretentious, and use fairly common materials. Workmanship and design are of greater priority, and the monochrome photography emphasises this to good effect.
I am not normally appreciative of Modern and/or Bauhaus design, being an enthusiast of the Streamline Moderne style.Read more ›
