This year marks the centenary of the Bauhaus design school, the place which birthed one of the most iconic and influential design and architecture movements of modern times. Started in Weimar Germany and spread throughout the world, along with its architectural modernism, interior pieces from lamps and teapots to door handles remain iconic Bauhaus collectibles today. Now, we’ve scoured the internet to pin down some Bauhaus design highlights to buy online.
Loved for its attention to form and function – one of the most sought after design tropes in fashion, too – Bauhaus unites art, technology, and German efficiency. Objects were stripped of any unnecessary flourishes and reduced to geometric shapes done out in steel, glass, plywood, and plastic.
Our selection of Bauhaus design pieces below includes classics from the Josef Albers-designed colorful nesting tables, available exclusively at the MoMA Design Store to the sleek Wassily Chair by Marcel Breuer. But Bauhaus remains a huge influence to modern-day designers, too, with highlights from Copenhagen-based homewares label ferm LIVING, and a beautiful, comprehensive coffee table book on the design school by Taschen.
