Klee collected his observations in his Pedagogical Sketchbook intended as the basis for the course in design theory at the famous Bauhaus art school in Germany. From the simple phenomenon of interweaving lines, his work leads to the comprehension of defined planes-of structure, dimension, equilibrium, and motion. But he employs no abstract formulas. The student remains in the familiar world-a world that acquires new significance through the straight forward approach of Klee’s simple, lucid drawings and his precise captions. Chessboard, bone, muscle, heart, a water wheel, a plant, railroad ties, a tightrope walker-these serve as examples for the forty-three design lessons.
“Mycelium is the network of all the threads of a fungus, also called the root of the mushroom. The insulating and moisture-absorbing properties of mycelium are very good. A lot of textiles are lacking these. Mycelium is only used in solid state, hence the combination with textiles, with the best of both materials being used, a kind of Mycelium textile or mycoTEX.“
