EUDON CHOI A/W 2017

 

ORNAMENT AND CRIME A/W2017

Eudon Choi has found inspiration in the work of Adolf Loos (1870-1933) an Austrian and Czech architect and influential European theorist of modern architecture and a pioneer of the moderning movement.

The collection focuses on Loos ethos for the elimination of adornment and captures his minimalist attitudes towards design.

The title of the show pays homage to Loos controversial essay ‘ Ornament and Crime’ which explored the idea of the deletion of ornament from everyday objects. Within the essay, Loos claimed that it was a crime to force craftsmen to waste their time on decoration he believed would become obsolete.
