The designers at Högl were also inspired to experiment with colour and form, lines and textures, materials and contours, leading them to develop a collection for Spring/Summer 2020 that is brimming with timeless style elements. Three maxims guide Högl through the new season: Arts & Crafts, Colours & Forms, Quality & Function.
Arts & Crafts
When it was founded in 1919, the Bauhaus school in Weimar had the radical idea of combining fine art with crafts. Its founder, Walter Gropius, dreamt about creating a new form of architecture: Baukunst, or ‘Art of Building’ in German. Each workshop would be run by an artist and a craftsman, who would work on a project collectively – how revolutionary! What are the distinguishing characteristics of all Bauhaus objects? Each form closely follows its designated purpose, responding to its material properties and construction methods.
