To ignore the influences of this design movement is almost impossible for any product designer, photographer, artist, sculptor, industrial designer, architect or graphic designer.
Most importantly, for me personally, are the design ethics and principles of the Bauhaus:
'Form follows function.'
'Design should be accessible by the masses.'
These principles are refelected in my own designs.
Marianne Brandt is one of my favourite female designers. Here is an ashtray she design whilst at the Bauhaus in 1924. It was designed to be manufactured in both cheaper and more luxurious materials so that, in monetary terms, it was available to the masses of Germany.
