Designer's review

Joseph Albers (1888-1976, born in Germany) is famous for his series of works called "HOMAGE TO THE SQUARES," in which multiple squares that everyone has seen at least once are layered and colored. is an artist. Born in Germany, Albers studied at the Bauhaus, became a teacher at the Bauhaus after graduation, and moved to the United States after the Bauhaus closed. In the United States, he taught at Black Mountain College, etc., and conveyed the educational philosophy of Bauhaus to the United States. In particular, Albers deepened his studies of color and form, teaching color composition and color theory. Among his students are Cy Twombly and Robert Rauschenberg.

Albers' color theory, which studied the mechanism of color illusion, is an inseparable existence for designers. I also learned Alber's theory of color in a color science class at university. Even when I design shoes at Sellenatela, I have a strong awareness of color, and Alber's theory of color may be the base when I think about color combinations.

The book includes not only Albers' famous square works, but also many of his drawings, sketches, and other abstract paintings. It's an exhibition catalog from 1988, so it's 33 years old, but it's in such good condition that you'll want to keep it as a family heirloom.
