Bauhaus Nowhaus

F51 Armchair by Walter Gropius

The F51 armchair was designed in 1920 by the then Bauhaus Walter Gropius for his Director's room in Weimar and has been faithfully produced since 1986 by Tecta.

Master of Modernism

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.

Preserving the Soul of Bauhaus Design

Ground-Breaking Cube

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.


The re-editions of the Bauhaus models faithfully produced by Tecta have been approved by the Bauhaus Archive in Berlin and bear the institute's logo as designed by Oskar Schlemmer at Bauhaus.

TECTA preserving the Soul of Bauhaus Design

The name Tecta connotes technology and, more generally, the Greek concept of techne: things conceived, made possible and created by man, offering benefits both physical and spiritual. The company produces essential modern design, but it is not just a manufacturer: it discovers, invents, explains, mediates, excites, and breathes new life into material things. Its products show that modernism began not with Art Nouveau, but much earlier, in the Prussian classicism of Karl Friedrich Schinkel, whose cast-iron garden seat influenced the structure of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona chair.
