LOOS ORNAMENTAL

LOOS ORNAMENTAL

Heinz Emigholz

Heinz Emigholz | Germany | 2008 | 72 min. | V.O. German

“Loos has the journalistic reputation of hating ornament. The misunderstanding is based on what people understand by the term. Ornament in the sense of floral relief really isn’t his bag. But if you enter the interiors he designed, all you see is ornamentation formed by the structures of the natural materials of wood, stone, metal, and textiles. Artfully arranging cut surfaces brings out the grain of wood and the veining of marble. In its interlocking character, the constructed space itself is a three-dimensional ornament. Loos didn’t worry about his supposed contradictions. Unfortunately, his pretentious 1910 essay Ornament and Crime has been completely distorted and absolutized”. (Interview: Stefanie Schulte Strathaus, Berlin, January 2008).
