Poster, Plastics + Design
This is a Poster. It was made for (as the client) Die Neue Sammlung. It is dated 1998 and we acquired it in 2009. Its medium is screenprint on paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.
Pierre Mendell and Klaus Oberer created this vivid design in three colorways for the Plastics + Design exhibition at Die Neue Sammlung Museum in Munich. The combination of simple shapes and fluorescent colors results in a striking graphic that echoes the synthetic colors found in plastics, while the varied proportions of each color radically change the overall effect.
