The Bauhaus story
The Bauhaus was an art school founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar in 1919. To the eye of the artistic tendencies and conceptions, at the time, it was something completely new, because it was a combination of art and crafts. The historic Bauhaus represents the most influential educational institution in the field of architecture, art and design of the 20th century. It existed in parallel with and in the Weimar Republic from 1919 to 1933 and is today considered the home of the avant-garde of classical modernism in all areas of free and applied art and architecture. The response to it continues to this day and has a major impact on the image of modernist trends.
At the beginning of the 1970s, a series of furniture and utility objects came onto the market as licensed re-editions, which to this day shape the idea of a uniform style. A characteristic of this furniture is the renunciation of the former colourfulness in favor of the colors black, white or chrome. Works and documents from the Bauhaus as well as relevant literature are collected in the Bauhaus Archive (Berlin) and the Bauhaus Museum (Weimar) and made accessible to the public.
