German design movement 1919 to 1933. Pieces were simple, classic and used geometric shapes. The idea that “form follows function” was used (the use and function of a product was more important than the decoration). A popular design movement from 1920 until 1939. Known for geometric shapes, curved smooth forms and bold colours. Founded in 1981 pieces were vibrant, bright with a mixture of colour and textures. Pieces were different and stood out due to there crazy forms. Dutch for "the style" the simple, abstract. Compositions of vertical and horizontal lines. Used only primary colours along with black and white.
