The D4 by Marcel Breuer through Tecta can, in effect, be referred to as the foldable brother of the Wassily chair. Originally named B4, this elegant folding chair presents itself as a mobile version of the steel tube lounge chair and thus a version which can be used when and where it is needed. The background behind and the materials used make the D4 an example of Bauhaus furniture par excellence.

Mathilde von Freytag-Loringhoven. Painter, Author, Animal Psychologist and Bauhaus Critic @ the Stadtmuseum Weimar

...Looking back from the safety of 2019 it can be all too easy to assume that Bauhaus was a popularly received and much celebrated institution... Painter, Author, Animal Psychologist and Bauhaus Critic the Stadtmuseum Weimar introduce one of the institution's most tenacious and steadfast opponents; and in doing so allows not only for considerations on some of Bauhaus's lesser discussed (hi)story, but also for reflections on the political, social and cultural realities of 1920's Germany...

...8, Holon, 5845400 on Thursday December 12th and runs until Saturday May 9th "Ruth Adler Schnee: Modern Designs for Living" at Cranbrook Art Museum, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, USA There can be few designers who better underscore the connections between inter-War European Modernism and post-War American Modernism, or the connections between an institution such as Bauhaus and one such as Cranbrook Academy of Art, than Ruth Adler Schnee... Born in Frankfurt in 1923 and raised in Düsseldorf, until 1938 when the family were forced to flee to America, Ruth Adler's mother, Marie Salomon, was not only a student of calligraphy and bookbinding at Bauhaus Weimar, a period of studies that also saw Paul Klee become a firm family friend and subsequently influence on young Ruth, just one of many inter-War avant-garde influences on young Ruth, but Marie Salomon also studied art under Hans Hofmann, who, and after his own emigration to America, would become not only an important protagonist in the development of abstract impressionism, but an important teacher in the development of Ray Kaiser, the future Ray Eames...

Herbert Bayer: Bauhaus Master opens at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, 2 East 91st Street, New York 10128 on Saturday November 16th and runs until Sunday April 5th ""Sitzen 69" Revisted" at the MAK - Museum Angewandte Kunst, Vienna, Austria In 1969 the, then, Österreichische Museum für angewandte Kunst, the, now, Museum Angewandte Kunst Vienna staged the exhibtion Sitzen 69, Sitting 69, with a presentation of good seating designs...

5 New Architecture & Design Exhibitions for October 2019 – Bauhaus Special

...Back in May 2019 the sheer number of new architecture and design exhibitions opening globally allowed us to produce two recommendations lists: one featuring exhibitions with a strong Bauhaus/inter-War Modernism focus, and one more general, less focussed... In May we started with the more general exhibitions and so this time it seemed only fair to begin with new exhibitions in Berlin, Weimar, Cottbus, London W1 and London E17 that explore Bauhaus and inter-War modernism in a relatively wide sense, but then the wider the sense, the more detailed the understanding...

5 New Architecture & Design Exhibitions for September 2019

..."Das Bauhaus in Berlin-Steglitz 1932-1933" at the Siemens-Villa, MSB Medical School Berlin, Germany As this Bauhaus anniversary year approaches its end, it is only right and proper that thoughts turn to the end of Bauhaus, and those last months in Berlin: months which far from being about the reform of creative education, the connections between art, craft and industry or the direction of society as had been the case in Dessau and Weimar, were for all about survival in an increasingly hostile environment... A reminder that much as post-War East Germany did it's best to extinguish memory of the institution, in immediate post-War West Germany Bauhaus's star didn't shine quite as brightly as it does today...

Anton Lorenz: From Avant-Garde to Industry @ Vitra Design Museum Schaudepot, Weil am Rhein

...Prior to his aforementioned acquaintance with Mies van der Rohe's cantilever chairs, Lorenz had seen works by Marcel Breuer in the office of Breuer's associate, business partner, and fellow Hungarian, Kálmán Lengyel, and subsequently not only joined the board of Breuer and Lengyel's Standard Möbel company but undertook experiments in his own workshop to further develop the technical, material, aspects of Breuer's work, experiments which, as he describes, were intended to bring the same resilience to Breuer's designs that he had felt in Mies's... Thonet, serving between 1933 and 1935 as, and somewhat logically, Head of Industrial Property Rights, before spending the second half of the 1930s in closed contact with the likes of Mies van der Rohe, Hans Luckhardt, Heinz Rasch, Lily Reich, László Moholy-Nagy and Marcel Breuer...

smow blog Design Calendar: June 1st 1932 - Mart Stam Awarded Artistic Copyright for the Cubic Cantilever Chair

...The story begins in Dessau in the mid 1920s and the development of tubular steel furniture, a process in which Marcel Breuer unquestionably played a major, if not the major, role... Aware of the commercial possibilities of the genre Marcel Breuer established in late 1926/early 1927 the company Standard-Möbel in Berlin with fellow Magyar Kálmán Lengyel, the first dedicated manufacturer of tubular steel furniture...
