Walter Gropius: New Works from Bauhaus Workshops
Walter Gropius outlines the guiding principles of Bauhaus living, from household utensils to textiles and ceramics
The Bauhaus sought to unite life, craftsmanship and art under one coherent ethos and aesthetic. In New Works from Bauhaus Workshops—the seventh of the Bauhaus’ publications—the institute’s founder, Walter Gropius (1888-1969), provides a comprehensive overview of the Bauhaus workshops. He explains the basic principles guiding the teaching, describes contemporary developments in architecture and illuminates the Bauhaus point of view on household utensils, which was geared toward finding the most suitable form for the respective object.
In this volume, Gropius presents the Bauhaus workshops in Weimar devoted to furniture, metals, textiles and ceramics, among other subjects.
