The artists and designers that passed through the doors of the Bauhaus school produced some of the most important images and experimental pieces of design of the 20th Century. From functional domestic objects such as chairs and tableware, to the geometric patterns use in clothing design, painting and photography, the movement was deeply progressive in its approach to methods of living. The lasting effects of the Bauhaus philosophy are still present in the design aesthetic of today — influencing contemporary trends in typography, architecture and product design. We look back over ten key pieces that exemplify and shaped the movement.
