Bauhaus: 100 years of iconic simplicity

| Designbest editorial staff

T

his year the Bauhaus, the design school established by Walter Gropius in 1919 and that became one of the most representative movements in modern design, celebrates its centenary.

We have decided to honour it by celebrating Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s principle “less is more”. This selection of our favourite Bauhaus icons presents our ode to simplicity: simple, archetypal and especially practical, they focus on functionality and have shells in glass, steel, plywood and plastic. 

This unconventional style is still extremely current: put in on display, room by room, for the entire year.
