Bauhaus Interior Design

Bauhaus furniture was designed on the idea of a necessity for new and radically different forms for the basis of the modern home. It rejected all existing notions about the standard of furniture such as heavy materials and excessive decorative features only affordable by the rich.

The goal was to create lightweight, adaptable, multi-purpose furniture in clean, hard materials for maximum economic sustainability. Tubular steel, metal, glass and wood were chief materials used for design.

It was within the walls of the Bauhaus where “combination furniture” or unit furniture was invented. The goal was to create multi-purpose, space saving furniture that matched – and could mix and match. A new concept in modern furniture at the time.
