Article: Eye

April 7, 2010

The current issue of Eye, the London-based international review of graphic design, introduces Fritz Kahn’s imagery in a four-page article. Referring to the monograph “Fritz Kahn – Man Machine/Maschine Mensch”, Eye founder Rick Poynor emphasizes the continuing impact of the illustrations: “Images that once looked futuristic, expressing the technological dreams and aspirations of their time, seem dated and even comical, measured against our own command of technology and the biosciences. But this in no way diminishes their appeal.” As examples for newer graphic design that refers to Kahn’s work, he mentions works by Eduardo Paolozzi, Fernando Vicente, and Young & Rubicam.
