The Bauhaus # itsalldesign
Bauhaus, known in Israel mainly as an architectural style, was an institution that changed 20th-century architecture and design significantly. The Bauhaus School (1919–1933) formulated universal design principles that combined art, craft and industry, while eschewing local traditions. The exhibition presents works by Bauhaus luminaries, among them Oskar Schlemmer and Walter Gropius, and by contemporary designers, such as Konstantin Grcic and Thomas Lommée, and juxtaposes Bauhaus aspirations with the challenges of contemporary designers.
