The Bauhaus in 100 Objects
To mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus, minimum presents in this book 100 legendary style icons and timeless furniture classics that are still available. Wilfried Lembert curated 100 objects to illustrate the Bauhaus phenomenon. The Bauhaus designers sought new answers to the question of the relationship between art, craft and industry. This question is too comprehensive to be limited to the years 1919 to 1933, in which the Bauhaus School existed. It was and is too important to be asked only in Weimar, Dessau and Berlin. The 100 objects are the experience of an unbiased view of the world - combined with the desire to change it, a cooperative attitude and the desire to conserve resources.
minimum curates a collection of furniture and accessories from traditional manufacturers and young designers with classic potential that create a unique collage. The Berlin-based company also plans offices and living spaces and is involved in the production of high-quality and aesthetically pleasing furniture.
