The world as design by Otl Aicher( Book )

64 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Otl Aicher (1922 1991) was an outstanding personality in modern design, he was a co-founder of the legendary Hochschule fur Gestaltung (HfG), the Ulm School of Design, Germany. His works since the fifties of the last century in the field of corporate design and his pictograms for the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich are major achievements in the visual communication of our times. Otl Aicher s writings are explorations of the world, a substantive part of his work. In moving through the history of thought and design, building and construction, he assures us of the possibilities of arranging existence in a humane fashion. As ever he is concerned with the question of the conditions needed to produce a civilized culture. These conditions have to be fought for against apparent factual or material constraints and spiritual and intellectual substitutes on offer. Otl Aicher likes a dispute. For this reason, the volume contains polemical statements on cultural and political subjects as well as practical reports and historical exposition. He fights with productive obstinacy, above all for the renewal of Modernism, which he claims has largely exhausted itself in aesthetic visions; he insists the ordinary working day is still more important than the cultural Sunday .

Otl Aicher (1922-1991) was an outstanding personality in modern design, he was a co-founder of the legendary Hochschule für Gestaltung (HfG), the Ulm School of Design, Germany. His works since the fifties of the last century in the field of corporate design and his pictograms for the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich are major achievements in the visual communication of our times. An integral component of Aicher's work is that it is anchored in a "philosophy of making" inspired by such thinkers as Ockham, Kant or Wittgenstein, a philosophy concerned with the prerequisites and aims, the objects

Otl Aicher ist einer der herausragenden Vertreter des Modernen Designs. Was er seit den fünfziger Jahren, seit seiner Zeit in der von ihm mitbegründeten, inzwischen legendären Ulmer Hochschule für Gestaltung, etwa auf dem Gebiet des Corporate Design geschaffen hat - erinnert sei hier nur an die Erscheinungsbilder für die Firma Braun, die Lufthansa, das Zweite Deutsche Fernsehen und die Firma ERCO -, gehört zu den ganz großen Leistungen der visuellen Kultur unserer Zeit.
