Fokus Bauhaus

An Exhibition at Helsinki Design Museum, August 2019 – February 2020

Just like Nordic Design, the term Bauhaus indicates modern, functional, democratic design. On the occasion of the centennial of the German art school Bauhaus (1919–33) we are looking at the collection of Design Museum Helsinki through the lens of Bauhaus and search for influences, parallels and differences.
