Abbott Miller: Brno Echo posters

Pentagram’s Abbott Miller has curated a multimedia design exhibition, Brno Echo: Ornament and Crime from Adolf Loos to Now, currently on show at the Moravian Gallery in Brno, Czech Republic as part of the city’s Biennial of Graphic Design

The exhibition looks at how simple concentric lines and patterns have become fundamental motifs of expression within modern design and takes the Austrian architect Loos’ 1908 manifesto, Ornament and Crime, as its starting point. In his text Loos claimed that an elimination of ornamentation would lead to the evolution of culture. Miller designed the exhibition catalogue and four posters that, when run together, read ‘brno echo’.

Work by Verner Panton, Ron Arad, Martin Woodtli and Philippe Apeloig features in the show which will run until October 19.
