THE SPIRIT OF WEIMAR – ATTITUDE, LOVE FOR EXPERIMENTATION AND THE ANIMUS OF MODERNITY 

Walter Gropius founded the State Bauhaus in Weimar, known as a classical city, and, in his manifesto, made the appeal: “Architects, sculptors, painters – we all have to turn back to handicraft!”  However, soon the art school sought proximity to industry.

Design is recollecting real values and authentic emotions. The clear shaping and high functionality of the Bauhaus style has remained a part of “handmade in Weimar”.
