The Bauhaus was founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar in 1919. The worldwide fascination with the Bauhaus remains unabated. Hardly any other institution is surrounded by as many myths and legends as the most influential art and design school of the 20th century. ‘The Bauhaus #itsalldesign’ at the Vitra Design Museum transports the Bauhaus into the present.
In a similar way, today’s designers are increasingly ignoring the boundaries of their traditional roles. They are experimenting with new forms of social participation in the processes of design, utilisation and usage. #itsalldesign builds a bridge between the ‘Bauhaus’ and today’s design trends, which are also strongly influenced by phenomena such as the digital revolution and social media.
