New Work by Norman Teague


Contemporary objects.




The name BLKHaUSis inspired by the Bauhaus, a German school of architecture and applied arts founded in 1919 on experimental principles of functionalism and truth in materials.  As an African American man in the design profession, I want my work to instigate the inclusion of black and brown stories in the history of design and promote design’s relevance to contemporary communities of color. Design is a language that can be used to as an agent of change. As a designer and educator, I strive to develop educational and creative pedagogies so that diverse communities can thrive and be seated at tables of power influencing urban and social design.
