The various artistic movements that followed Impressionism gave rise to the creation of new landscapes and designs, revolutionising traditional style and perspective. The swirling abstractions of Van Gogh, the experimental deconstruction of the Cubists and the geometric designs of Mondrian; all of these artists re-defined the expression of beauty by a different use of line and form, to represent the concept of time and movement. During the 1950s the sculptures of Calder, further developed the abstract idea of time and movement and came to represent what is now defined as Kinetic Art; art that expresses movement and fluidity. This volume is a colourful collection of graphic styles derived from Kinetic Art; translating these into designs that can be used in fashion, furniture and interior design. These are unique and original designs, that are unrestrained, that transform creative ideas into repeating patterns, to be developed and used in everyday products.
