Portrait of a Woman (Ria Munk)
Vienna Künstlerhaus (1865) Vienna Secession (1897)
From the above images, these buildings were built between 1865 and 1897. in 1865, the Vienna Kunstlerhause was an exhibition building, built by the Austrian Artist's Society. The next building was built by the Vienna Secessionists. From here, we could see the distinctive difference between the aesthetics form of the buildings and the excessive ornaments usage at the dome of the Vienna Secession building. I can conclude that, the right building is more aesthetically pleasing and it fits the function, to exhibit great art.
Too much information on the Secessionist, I should have already related the design practice with the movement that is more suitable with my field.
Well, can i just assume? Can i be whimsical?
Boring ceramic fruit bowl
As a product designer, the design of the bowl incorporates the intricate design of floral motifs and you can name it new when the ornament plays the function, which is to place fruits. As Mdm. Suzy wanted us to relate my practice field with the either two ideologies. I agreed that my design philosophy suits the Secessionist. Loos is famed for his anti-ornament and he believed that workers should not waste time on doing something not useful. The right image might be reflecting the Loos ideology which repels ornaments and, indeed. It is boring. I guess that's for now.
Till then, later.
