Modernism

Posted on: April 6, 2009

Modernism is everywhere around us today. We can see it in art, music, movies, fashion and many other designs. Modern works break away from the traditional forms. For example, modern artists use variety of materials to create art work and modern architects build buildings that are not straight and rectangular.  Sometimes breaking away from traditional forms results in designs that are practical and simple rather than beautiful; and this is what I’m going to focus on this blog post.

Here are some examples of modernism.

This is called 'Bag TV,' sold in England. TV is thought to be watched at home, but this modern bag design broke the traditional idea and let people carry around their TVs.

This cute design is called 'Wheel you pass me the salt?' The designer broke the traditional form of saltshaker and made it look like a car. It is also very practical because you just have to wheel the car to pass it on.

This is a modern design with a chair on top and bookshelf beneath. It emphasizes pratical needs because you don't have to get out of your chair to look for your book! Simple color and design also makes this modern.

Another innovative idea that moved away from tradition. This drawing is done on cassettes instead of canvas. Modern artists are still in search of new trials and creative ideas.
