Bauhaus design 

The original Bauhaus was built in 1919 in Germany. The Bauhaus design is very modern as characterised by:


  • Primary colours
  • straight lines
  • interlocking shapes
  • mechanical themes
  • industrial materials
  • geometric shapes
  • simplicity

This influenced the architecture of buildings, furniture and graphic designs as  in those days everything was more curved and traditional such as a Victorian chair is very different to modern day chairs.


For example the Bauhaus influenced the way houses a build nowadays. To us this would be seen as normal but when the Bauhaus first was build it was a shock to people. Looking at the house above you can see that it has very minimal colour like the bauhaus and the shapes are very geomatic that slot together.
