This table lamp, designed by Wilhelm Wagenfeld in 1924, is often named the Bauhaus lamp.
Wagenfeld was 24 years old, when he was admitted as a journeyman to the Bauhaus workshop in Weimar. Here he designed the first model of this lamp as his solution to an assignment given to him by Moholy-Nagy. As Wagenfeld said years later, the Bauhaus designs were intended to be industrial products, and indeed looked like them. In fact they were hand-crafted.

Gunta New Zealand Woolen Blanket by Sophie Probst & Michele Rondelli
The 'Gunta' woollen blanket finds its inspiration in the Bauhaus period and the work of the Bauhaus weaver - master craftswoman Gunta Stölzl. The ceiling is a tribute to her magnificent work, which is characterised by the translation of modern art into textiles. Bright colours and geometric shapes characterise this ceiling. A tribute to the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus era.

Poster 100 Years of Bauhaus
Celebrate the 100th anniversary of Walter Gropius’ Bauhaus with this lively, wide-ranging documentary exploring the history, present and future of the utopian design and architecture school and communal social movement around the world. The Bauhaus is to this day the most internationally influential think tank for architecture, art and design. If the Bauhaus stands out from the history of modernism, it is because it was the model for extraordinarily innovative, open, experimental educational and production processes. The core of the Bauhaus idea was to unite art and craftsmanship and make them accessible to everyone. The products were to go into industrial mass production in order to revolutionize everyday life and create a new, better world.
