All of the three authors were enthusiastic about the new possibilities for their immediate futures. Out of three of them, Filippo Marinetti had the most extremist ideas and therefore, was more eager for change and a newer future. His philosophy Futurism was indeed all about the new beginnings in Italy where the history did not matter and the horizon offered more aggression, speed, militarism, anti-feminism and recklessness.

They all shared somewhat similar views on the love for technological advancements. Rodchenko was interested in grids, lines and because he was one of the pioneers in Constructivism movement, he adored any change within the society that would promote logic, theory, experimentation and artistic analysis. He was an artistic engineer for whom technology was the only mean for all the desired experimentation.

El Lissitzky mentioned an interesting idea about the art and design that would follow and his idea was “dematerialization”. He believed that the society was experiencing “dematerialization” caused by technological advancements. This is especially true now, after almost 100 years!!! We have gotten rid of almost all physical properties of our lives. Everything is digital, existing on servers, clouds and then on our screens.

I believe that all these three designers rebelled through history and paved the way for the design that we know today and without their revolutionary ideas, things might have either not advanced enough or might have advanced in various different ways. Their experimental attitude is beyond inspiring given the background of the times these people were living in but the ideas that I find problematic for today’s world and for society in general is Filippo Marinetti’s obsession for war, destruction, aggression and toxic masculinity. Perhaps, other artists thought the same way too but the fact that Futurism was based on these radical ideas, would certainly remain problematic for today’s world.
