THE CRADLE OF MODERN LIFESTYLE

Where art, architecture, fashion and design unite

Ask 10 people what “Bauhaus” means and you get 10 different definitions.

“It’s all about streamlined, modern architecture, isn’t it?”
“It’s those funky chairs in the office.”
“Well-designed and well-priced?”

Bauhaus is all of those and more. Think lamps and pottery, paintings and typefaces, urban planning and even babies’ cradles. From its foundation in 1919, the Bauhaus movement has been, and continues to be, a huge influence on the way we live. This design revolution started south of Berlin, in the cities of Weimar and Dessau. They are in BauhausLand, the German Federal States of Thuringia and Saxony-Anhalt, and in 2019, when they celebrate the centenary, they are welcoming the world.
