For my final project I am going to build a corn hole board set out of recycled skis. My aesthetic is very “outdoorsy/Coloradoy”. If I were to incorporate aesthetics from the 20th Century Design Movement, I would probably have to remove the skis entirely. The three aesthetics I’m thinking of are International style, Cubism, and De Stijl .
Applying International Style, I used this chair design as inspiration. It has that visually weightless quality and cantilever construction.
This is my sketch. Sorry it’s not the best. I tried to incorporate the cantilever characteristic and the weightless characteristic. The dark black lines would be metal bars bent in a similar way as the chair. And the board on top would just be a piece of thin plywood without paint.
Next I looked at Cubism. To apply this aesthetic I imagine a normally built corn hole board like below. The aesthetic would be incorporated in the paint design. I found some cubism designs that I thought would be cool if they were painted onto the board (also below).
Lastly, I looked to incorporate De Stijl in my design. This meant using primary colors, black lines, and white space. I imagined, again, building a normal board and using paint to convey the aesthetic. My drawing is below.
