At Cresco Group, we are big fans of Bauhaus. We think it is the most influential design school ever existed. 100 years later (1919 - 2019) it keeps influencing the way we design buildings, products, electronics, etc. The strong unwavering influence of this design philosophy can be explained by the most fundamental principle that is stands for: "form follows function". We seem to talk about user centered design as something new. It is not. Industrial design framework established by Bauhaus school exactly 100 years ago was where it all started. Let's continue the legacy of Walter Gropius and Bauhaus by designing solutions that have the user at the center of it all. You always win when you start with your user/consumer in mind.
