In today's society, modern design is everywhere, and it affects people's production and life in every aspect. Recalling the origins of modern design, since the establishment of the Bauhaus in 1919, a number of outstanding design talents have emerged. It was the emergence of these talents that allowed modern design to develop. These designers advocated emphasis on function and opposed overly complicated decoration. The principle of “less is more” that they pursue is the way of “inaction but doing something”, which means not doing some useless work and focusing on efficiency, doing something that conforms to the law of development and can achieve a more ideal state. The same is true of various phenomena in modern design. Modern design emphasizes performance, which is different from reproduction, focus on form and style, and concrete to abstract.
