  • Max Bill [ 1908 - 1994 ]

    Born in Winterthur, Switzerland in 1908. After an apprenticeship between 1924 and 1927 in Zurich, Max Bill studied at Bauhaus under Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee. Initially, he worked mainly as a painter, however, after 1929 he became a sculptor, graphic designer, and architect, as well as an industrial designer. “Fifteen variations on a single theme” (1935-1938) is one of the geometric and abstract works he created during this period. After this he dedicated himself to the Ulm School of Design (Hochschule fur Gestaltung), handing down the spirit of Bauhaus to future generations and later becoming the first principal of the school.
