Singer Carly Simon once crooned ‘I know nothing stays the same…’ but she’d likely have her assumption questioned by upstart Bauhaus University graduates Manuel Goller and Sebastian Schönheit, whose Berlin-based design studio New Tendency applies ‘modernist design principles to contemporary objects.’ The name came about when their in-school collective, feeling the weight of history, first branded themselves ‘My Bauhaus is Better than Yours’ before being hit with threats of legal action from not only, er… the Bauhaus, but even a German DIY store.
