2019, FESTIVAL SCHOOL FUNDAMENTAL, festival graphics for the Bauhaus Dessau Festival. Eva-Maria and Lisi met at the Bauhaus Lab 2018 in Dessau where they researched about Konrad Wachsmann and designed the exhibition “The Art of Joining.” Isa and Lisi have worked together
since 2014 on architectural concepts and competitions in Vienna. Together they designed the festival display for School Fundamental.

The festival architecture forms the link between the historical learning environment of the Bauhaus building and the vivid, experimental programme of the festival. The interventions either emphasize, contradict or highlight architectural details and characteristics of the iconic building. Colorful ratchet straps symbolize the idea of interweaving the building's history with its contemporary use. 

In alliance with the graphic design they create a unique visual identity for the festival. An installation of colorful straps in the entrance hall subtly highlights the curtain wall façade and marks the main staircase and its function as a brightly lit vertical connector for the festival. In the former weaving workshop, the spatial division of the festival's workshop areas builds up on the seven by five meter structural grid of the building. Ratchet straps tensioned between the columns emphasize the building's structure and divide the space into several flexible zones for working, experimenting and discussing. In the former metal workshop on the other hand the structure of the building is counteracted by the setup of 250 rental chairs in concentric circles. This setup works as an enhanced version of a parliament where the classical semi-circle completes into a full circle for the “Parliament of Schools,” denying the central speaker's position and empowering all of the participants and visitors alike. On the ground floor, the festival center features a spatial display communicating the programme.
A grid of straps interwoven with wooden panels spatially represents the schedule of each day and stresses the importance of the festivals' protagonists and varied formats. The information on the panels is printed on a graphical pattern which is in fact one poster cut in several smaller pieces. This graphic design approach echoes the festival architecture by using one element in different
ways and allows in a second step for the manufacturing in-house. It creates an eminent uniqueness which becomes even more noticeable in the booklet which has different covers because the same paper was printed from different directions. The pattern includes images of nature: rivers, roots,
tentacles. It interprets the abstract aesthetics of weaving and pushes into the figurative to emphasize the foundations of our living environment.
