A Tale of Two Hoffmanns at MAAD

September 23, 2011

Have you visited MAAD (Museum of American Architecture and Design) in Inworldz lately? MAAD constantly surprises me as it always has something new to explore and the group gifts tie in with the latest exhibit. The museum showcases the designers and architects from the United States.

I paid a visit to The Tale of Two Hoffmanns, a furniture design exhibit that highlights the work of Josef and Wolfgang Hoffmann. Many of the pieces will interest builders of virtual worlds. I live in Australia but I had no trouble in recognising design trends that  Josef and Wolfgang Hoffmann influenced.

This month’s member’s gift is aimed squarely at builders as it includes textures inspired by Josef Hoffmann. Builders. You can use them in your own builds. This is my humble effort as I made this chair and cushions from the free textures.

If you are at all interested in design and its history come down out of that building platform and pay MAAD a visit. You will find the exhibit in the education building and the group gift in the main building.
