German design 1949 - 1989: Two countries, one history | Vitra Design Museum

The cheap, colourful plastic designs from East Germany pitted against the cool functionalism of West German design: The publication German Design 1949 - 1989: Two Countries, One History does away with such clichés. More than 30 years after German reunification, it presents a comprehensive overview of German design history of the post-war period for the first time ever.

While the book highlights the different realities of East and West, the many cross references that connected design in both are also examined. It impressively illustrates the many facets of German design history in the post-war period.
