The 1980’s was a reactionary period in which designers sought to liberate themselves from the constraints of functionality and turn more towards the visual arts. German designers, influenced by the freed expression established by Italy’s Alchimia and Memphis movements, developed their own design vocabulary directly related to the contradictions and uncertainties definitive of the divided German post-modern experience. Using common materials that were low cost and readily available, the result was a raw, severe aesthetic with an unmistakable energy.
