Walter Gropius and the Bauhaus strove to create a visionary and Utopian craft guild that would combine beauty with usefulness through architecture, sculpture, painting, and crafts and engineering.
Structures built in the style of Bauhaus featured many aspects that would later come to define modern architecture – frame structures of steel, glass facades. The Bauhaus was a trendsetter in architecture and design for a hundred years.
In 1922/23 Gropius designed his strictly cubic director's room in Weimar with his own designs and those of other Bauhäusler.
The reeditions of the Bauhaus models produced by Tecta are approved by the Bauhaus Archive in Berlin and have the original Bauhaus signet of Oskar Schlemmer, master at the Bauhaus in Weimar and Dessau. Even today, the proportions of the Bauhaus models are exactly the same as those of the originals.
In a 14-year period, Germany’s Bauhaus School of Art and Design changed the face of modernity.
With utopian ideas for the future, the school developed a pioneering fusion of fine art, craftsmanship, and technology.
Both an institution and a design philosophy, Bauhaus has been one of the greatest influences in modern design.
