The Bauhaus

This is a movement I am particularly interested in because it consists of a group of extremely influential designers, such as Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier, who still remain iconic almost 100 years later. I love the ethos of the movement, which consisted of great design values such as 'less is more' and 'form follows function' which I believe creates beautifully simple yet sophisticated and timeless pieces. Within this movement also set themselves limitations when designing, for instance, colour and pattern are kept to a minimum, as well as mixing materials. This is because they prioritise the function one the form.
