Text

The Bauhaus graduate Hin Bredendieck (1904–1995) was a versatile designer and pioneering design educator. His extraordinary life's work and his worldwide network testify to the international importance of his work and ideas. The richly illustrated, high-quality monograph presents the life and work of Hin Bredendieck in detail.

Hin Bredendieck's life and work are exemplary for the success, emigration and international dissemination of the design ideas developed at the Bauhaus: Coming from Aurich, East Frisia, he was a student at the Bauhaus Dessau from 1927 to 1930. In 1937 he emigrated to the USA, where he was given a teaching position at the New Bauhaus Chicago. As founding director of the Institute for Industrial Design at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, he became one of the most influential communicators of Bauhaus ideas in America in the post-war period.
