Poster of the Day: Rheinbrucke (Everything from Rheinbrucke Dept. Store)

vintage poster, Rheinbrucke (Everything from Rheinbrucke Dept. Store) by Peter Birkhauser

The Swiss Object Poster Style sought to create unforgettable icons out of everyday objects through breathtaking graphics and printing. No one artist knew how to accomplish this better than Peter Birkhauser, who created more than 50 Object Poster masterpieces during the Thirties, Forties and Fifties.

This elegant poster featuring a simple box is a perfect illustration of Birkhauser’s magic – the crisp folds of the wrapping paper, the trompe l’oeil affect of the green string, and the whimsical flip of the handle represent everything that the department store stands for.
