One hundred years after the founding of the Bauhaus school, this book takes a deeper look at some of this design movement’s most recognizable objects. The Bauhaus existed for only 14 years in Germany, but for the past 100 years its ideas have been passed on and its products relaunched, imitated and further developed. Using 14 famous, familiar, or forgotten objects, this book offers 14 case studies. It examines questions such as how did the woman sitting on the tubular-steel chair become the most famous anonymous figure from the Bauhaus; whether the Haus am Horn in Weimar has a secret twin; and why the tea infusers by Marianne Brandt which were created as prototypes for industrial production always remained one-of-a-kind pieces. This book presents art and design from the Bauhaus-Archiv’s collection, along with exceptional loans from international collections. It sheds light on how unique work and series, remake and original are inseparably linked in the history of the Bauhaus. This is because Bauhaus artists did not see art and technology as opposed to each other. Instead, they used technical innovations to create exceptional works of art, and they took serial production into account from the moment they began drafting their designs. Reproductions, re-editions and remakes have made the Bauhaus the 20th century’s most influential school of architecture, design, and art, and this book offers a new take on the Bauhaus legacy.

One objective of this book is to study the budget for each individual project, as far as possible, in terms of construction methods and materials, energy and sustainability factors, in order to carry out a global evaluation. In effect, a means of evaluating interesting sources of information relevant to the quality of life, the economy, eco-system and other minor considerations. Whether partially or totally prefabricated, all of the designs illustrate the inherent capacity of many architects to design properties which are more appealing and intelligent, sustainable, economical, with low maintenance costs and reduced energy consumption and, it goes without saying, more agreeable living accommodation. All of this demonstrates the determination to create something unique within a very tight budget.

Peek behind the curtains of London’s iconic theatres with acclaimed actor Simon Callow as your personal guide. This richly illustrated exploration of the most remarkable London theatres features witty and engaging texts by actor Simon Callow, whose knowledge of the city’s dramatic venues is intimate and wide-ranging. One of the most prominent photographers of the past 50 years, Derry Moore, captures the theatres from every angle, whether it’s a velvet box seat at the Novello, the view from the Theatre Royal, Haymarket’s proscenium, or the grand entrance of the foyer in the Apollo Victoria. Exquisite close-ups of architectural elements—such as flamboyant Rococo Baroque friezes, William Edward Trent’s Art Deco mermaids, painted marble pilasters, and elaborately framed mirrors—highlight often unnoticed features and present each theatre’s unique character. From the West End to the South Bank, Westminster to Hackney, the theatres profiled here come to life in ways we rarely see, when the seats are empty and the stages silent.
