100 YEARS OF BAUHAUS

March 06, 2019

A century of influence—founded in 1919, Bauhaus celebrates 100 years of prominent design. Operational from 1913 to 1933, the German institution is revered as one of the most influential art schools of the 20th century, and the subsequent Bauhaus movement explored the profound relationship between art, society, and technology. Today, we present five products inspired by the unification of fine arts, architecture, and deconstructive design.
FK90
Fabricius & Kastholm, 1973
Perfection, aesthetics, and minimization—such was Fabricius & Kastholm’s design philosophy. Composed of glass and steel, the FK90 exudes subtle simplicity. The chrome-plated steel legs seamlessly fit below the tabletop, supported with minimal hardware, representing classic Bauhaus design. The tabletop is available in 19mm glass, slate or steel-rolled marble.
COCO CHAIR
OeO Studio, 2016
Oeo Studio’s Coco Chair was born from a desire to create an elegant design through the use of minimal materials. Referencing one of the most recognizable Bauhaus elements, the tubular steel frame with black powder-coated legs incorporates style and function. With a variety of upholstery options available, the Coco will fit in seamlessly into casual or formal settings alike.
BL1 TABLE LAMP
Robert Dudley Best, 1930
Designed in 1930 by industrial designer, Robert Dudley Best, the BL1 Table Lamp is as iconic today as it was at its inception. Inspired by his friendship with Walter Gropius and the Bauhaus movement in general, Best’s BL1 compounds hard texture with soft lines. Since its creation, this design has radiated light across the desks of many, including Winston Churchill’s at the Whitehall. With minimal ornamentation, the base is available in brass or chrome.
PK22 EASY CHAIR
Poul Kjærholm, 1956
An evolution of Kjærholm’s graduation project, the “Element Chair” or PK25, the PK22 is a study in refined industrial expression. Framed in steel, the sleek profile of this design holds a distinct aesthetic appeal down to the screws. Coupled with the detailed stitching in the upholstery, the PK22 effectively combines artistry and functional design.
CB-454 GEOMETRIC LOUNGE
Craig Bassam and Scott Fellows, 2017
BassamFellows’ Geometric series incorporates the ideals from the Wiener Werkstätte and the Bauhaus to create a total work of art. Celebrating the sublimity of geometry, BassamFellows incorporates steel, wood, and leather to create a lounge chair with an ergonomic seat and a unique look. Meticulously crafted, all welds, joinery, and seams are concealed by natural grain leather wrapping. Metal frame in nickel or bronze with wooden seat in walnut or ash. Leather upholstery.
