The year 2019 marks the centenary of the founding of the Bauhaus, one of the 20th century most influential cultural movements.
The German art school was founded in Weimar by Walter Gropius in 1919 and it moved to Dessau first and then to Berlin. Although the Bauhaus was closed because of the Nazis in 1933, its ideas continued to spread all over the world along with emigrating Bauhaus members to Switzerland, Israel, USA and other countries.
The intention of the Bauhaus school was to reunite the arts that were previously separated in the academies in order to arrive at contemporary forms of art and architecture. The Bauhaus style became very influential in modern design, art, architecture, graphic design, interior design and typography.
In occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus, Michele Rondelli & Sophie Probst continued the series of "Bauhaused Blankets", now available also in cotton. Geometric patterns declined in bright colours, celebrate one of the most important movement of architecture, art and design of the whole 20th century.
