Osram - More economical lighting (German text), 1950

Birkhauser, Peter poster: Osram - More economical lighting (German text)

The Swiss Object Poster Style sought to create unforgettable icons out of everyday products through breathtaking graphics and printing. No one was more skilled in this genre than Birkhauser, who created more than 50 Object Poster masterpieces during the Thirties, Forties, and early Fifties.

This poster of an Osram lightbulb is a virtuouso performance, with textures so life-like they appear to be photographic. The tromp l'oeil effect of the reflection on the curved glass was a Birkhauser trademark - it appears in infinite variety in his best posters.

Osram is one of Birkhauser's hardest posters to find, especially in fine condition.

Birkhauser, Peter
