Why is it Special?

Designed in 1928 by Marianne Brandt, the only woman to have worked in the Bauhaus Metallwerkstatt, and Helmut Schulze, this is a wonderful example of an archetype in the search for simplicity in the industrial process of spinning and pressing metals.

Founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar in 1919, the Bauhaus (House of Building) was a German school of arts, architecture and applied arts, which at the time represented the gathering and decanting point of all emerging avant-gardes in these fields. For the high quality of the characters who taught and studied there, as well as for the radical approach to design, the Bauhaus is at the origin of the Modern Movement in Design and Architecture. Since the mid-1980s, Alessi has reproduced, under license from the Bauhaus Archiv in Berlin, a selection of projects created by some of the school's main protagonists.
