Bauhaus Archive

Back from a few full-packed days in Berlin which was basically history lessons by day, grungy underground clubbing by night. Apart from all the amazing graffiti everywhere I would have to say that one of the most inspirational design elements was our visit to the Bauhaus museum. The Bauhaus school used to be one of the most influential schools of architecture, design, and art of the 20th century only operating from 1919-1933. The Bauhaus Archive now holds a collection of pieces produced at the school. One of my favorite designers, Josef Albers, was a student there.

Unfortunately we couldn't take pictures in the gallery, but here's the shop.
