International Conference partnered by the School of Design, University of Technology Sydney (UTS), IKEA x UTS Future Living Lab and the Goethe Institute
September 30 – October 2, 2019 Sydney, Australia
Registration is now open
One hundred years after its founding in Weimar, this conference traces the transnational impact of the Bauhaus on the history of the future of design. As a workshop of modernity and a laboratory of the future, the Bauhaus changed everyday life through design: from single objects to buildings and cities. The Bauhaus set into motion a democratisation of design that is reflected today in all aspects of the objects we use and the spaces we live in. Impact! From Bauhaus to IKEA examines historical and contemporary design theories, philosophies and practices of making into the future.
