on trend: bauhaus.

sometimes i just start to notice images popping up on pinterest in a series of familiar shapes and lately it’s this bauhaus vibe i’ve been seeing. i went to an excellent bauhaus exhibit at LACMA of artist moholy-nagy and it reminded me how experimental the artists from this art movement were, and how much i love it. and then i began seeing its influences all over the place. from textiles designs by block shop, to tile floors to wrapping paper from accompany, and typefaces, too. i think bauhaus might be back on trend — although its certainly a classic, and for me it never went out of fashion. it’s definitely a favorite of mine.

  1. love this pop-art-ey, sort of somber elegance. and p.s., re: the open shelving? hello, earthquake zone? why don’t you start a trend with glassed in cabinets? or call for ideas on eq-proof designs for open shelving?

    • earthquakes did occur to me. ;) but having seen firsthand the damage they do, it’s not going to matter a whole lot more if they’re INSIDE the cupboard. but i like the idea earthquake safe! when the last big one hit my friend’s fridge flew away from the wall into the center of the kitchen and its contents went EVERYWHERE. what a mess.

  2. I am so excited to be visiting Germany in July and visiting Bauhaus Dessau – we are staying overnight in their residence and touring the museum as well as the master houses where Paul Klee and Vassily Kandinsky and Walter Gropius resided and Mies Van der Rohe (amongst others) designed!
