Another key tenet of Bauhaus design was the idea of introducing clean lines into open space. It’s this notion perhaps more than any other that has meant that Bauhaus design looks and feels so modern today. One of the best examples is Knoll’s Laccio Side and Coffee Tables. A selection of interlocking nesting tables, they offer an architectural take on the modern coffee table, maximising space and adhering to the Bauhaus preference for sharp angles and straight lines.
Taken together, the Bauhaus represented a seismic shift in the way we conceive our buildings and interiors. In stripping down the barriers between fine and applied art, it launched a new, democratic ideal of luxury, in which the materials and craftsmanship spoke for itself. At Chaplins, we’re delighted to part of this enduring legacy, sharing contemporary Bauhaus furniture with the UK and abroad.
