From Bauhaus to Your House
Synonymous with Modernism, the Bauhaus, founded in Germany by Walter Gropius, is arguably the most influential art and design school of the 20th Century, Although it operated for only 14 years from 1919, to its closure in 1933 due to Nazi interference, the impact of the Bauhaus has been far-reaching.
Built on principles of ‘form follows function’, integration of art and technology and cross-disciplinary collaboration, the Bauhaus activated a democratisation of design that reshaped the world. Today, the spaces we occupy, the furniture we own and the everyday objects we all use owe much to the Bauhaus and its avant-garde thinking.
