The Bauhaus was founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar. The German term Bauhaus-literally "building house"-was understood as meaning "School of Building", but in spite of its name and the fact that its founder was an architect, the Bauhaus did not have an architecture department during its first years of existence. The Bauhaus style later became one of the most influential currents in modern design, Modernist architecture and art, design and architectural education. The Bauhaus had a profound influence upon subsequent developments in art, architecture, graphic design, interior design, industrial design, and typography.
Designed in 1924 by Marianne Brandt, the only woman to have worked at the Bauhaus Metallwerkstatt, together with Helmut Schulze.
