Photographer Yannick Schuette is based between Berlin and Vienna. The story Form Follows Function‘ that Yannick Schuette shot for Vogue Portugal relates to the‚ Bauhaus‘ era that just celebrates its 100th anniversary.
Bauhaus‘ was established out of the occuring industrialisation‘ at the time and the radical and fundamental change it had for society, that was brought along and had given rise a minimalistic, instustrialized style in contemporary fashion and interior. Every change in style and aesthetic has its roots in global movements in society and is ultimately visible in what we see and surround us with. ‚Bauhaus‘ pioneer Walter Gropius once spoke up for the ‚necessity of keeping up intellectual progress‘ to stay relevant for following eras.
Taking references by obvious details like the ‚Bauhaus‘ color spectrum, the graphic shapes & interior settings - featuring famous designs throughout the era - the editorial also confidently transfers the overall strong, but not less sensual, mood from the time to another contemporary level, strongly shaped by selected iconic and pioneering fashion pieces out of the presence.
