An Influence Through Art and Design
Bauhaus was an influential art and design movement that began in 1919 in Weimar, Germany. The movement encouraged teachers and students to pursue their crafts together in design studios and workshops. The school moved to Dessau in 1925 and then to Berlin in 1932, after which Bauhaus—under constant harassment by the Nazis—finally closed. The Bauhaus movement championed a geometric, abstract style featuring little sentiment or emotion and no historical nods, and its aesthetic continues to influence architects, designers and artists.
In trying to follow the design ethic of the Bauhuas movement, Lusty Lloyd Loom decided to add some of their contemporary design features to their existing furniture range. They achieved this by removing the traditional wooden legs from chairs, tables and stools. They then replaced the legs with shaped chrome frames to create a more fluid feel to the traditional Lloyd Loom shapes.
