Design Movements 1: Bauhaus Furniture

How Can You Incorporate Bauhaus Design in Your Home?

Bauhaus was the most influential modernist art school of the 20 th century, which had a major impact in both Europe and the United States, even after closing. This was due to the approach to teaching and understanding of art’s relationship to society and technology. The school was shaped by the 19 th and 20 th century trends such as the Arts and Crafts movement, which had wanted to find a distinction between fine and applied arts, as well as reuniting creativity and manufacturing.

In the school’s early years it pictured itself as a medieval crafts organisation, but there was more stress on uniting art and industrial design, which was ultimately proved to be its most original and important achievement.

The Bauhaus style is focused on clean geometric shapes and materials such as wood, metal and glass. The Bauhaus design originally included a futuristic look that took inspiration from functional products for the real world. The mechanical and industrial aspects of these items of furniture were showcased.

Some IQ Furniture examples to help you incorporate a Bauhaus interior design include Atari , this table is perfect for this specific design due to the materials used and design of the crossed legs. The crossed legs give a Barcelona chair, a very popular item of furniture included in the Bauhaus design, style finish to the coffee table. The glass table top allows you to appreciate the incredible crossed design of the wooden legs cleverly placed underneath the table.
