„Everyone has a right to good design”. Interview with "beyond bauhaus" jury member Lisa Lang

Lisa Lang is a member of the international jury in the competition beyond bauhaus - prototyping the future. It was by chance that the entrepreneur and international speaker came upon the idea of combining fashion with technology. Her brands ElektroCouture and ThePowerHouse are leading agencies for fashion technology, portable technologies and intelligent textile production. She was recently named one of the Top 50 Women in Tech by Forbes Europe.

Lisa Lang told us how the Bauhaus has influenced her and what design can do for society:

1. What do you associate with the Bauhaus?
I had the great good fortune to study at the Merz Academy, in Stuttgart, where we were trained in Bauhaus thinking: the craftsman is an artist; the artist is a craftsman (as the daughter of a Franconian craftsman, this idea has shaped me very much). Over the years, I have been very much involved with the Bauhaus—its history, ideals (even if they didn’t always achieve them) and, most importantly, its products.

2. In your opinion, what effects do Bauhaus ideas still have on our everyday lives and how can we benefit from them in the future?
In the age of technology, where we are experiencing new speeds across society, design has become all the more important. Design is confronted with task of becoming the user-interface between new applications, making technology more accessible and our everyday lives easier. Thought of this way, the ideals of the Bauhaus are all the more relevant now, a hundred years later. As it was then, it is also now important to put new materials into new contexts and to find new solutions to technological challenges. I find this parallel very exciting. What great opportunities we have before us! What will the new Bauhaus 4.0 designers create?

3. What do you expect from the competition beyond bauhaus - prototyping the future?
For me, the Bauhaus ideal, in a nutshell, is: Everyone has the right to good design. The timeless design of the Bauhaus students was borne of the interface between highly technical manufacturing, interdisciplinary thinking and the courage and necessity to break new ground. I am looking forward to getting to know these new designers and their products and their thinking. We need new design and new solutions to overcome the challenges of the future. For this, the Bauhaus is an ideal inspiration. But we don't need a copy of it; we need new ways of thinking.
