From Bauhaus To Your House

2019 marks the centenary of the Bauhaus. So its time to start marketing designs inspired by the avant garde. To celebrate, MuralsWallpaper have designed a signature new collection that references “classic Bauhaus shapes and colors, scaled up as murals in a modern interpretation of the movement.”

I’ve bought plenty of replica Bauhausian housewares in my day. But these are not replicas, rather “these statement surface designs by MuralsWallpaper incorporate flat concrete textures inspired by Bauhaus architecture, and transform Bauhaus’ iconic primary color palette to tones that make them more accessible and ideal for modern home decoration,” note their promotional materials

The overlaying of colors and shapes that make up the murals are inspired by the color theory of Josef Albers and by László Moholy-Nagy. Featuring layered architectural shapes and shifting directions, the murals use minimal lines to present a contrast of sharp angles and soft, curved shapes. “The simplicity of the geometric forms and colors come together to make a bold impact.” If you’re keen on the dynamic, asymmetric forms of original Bauhaus exhibition posters, “on a scale that is simply not possible using traditional on-the-roll wallpaper,” this is for you. And you can celebrate the Bauhaus at home with these six murals – Neues Sehen (newvision), Perspektive (perspective), Kreis (circle), Bilden (form), Dreieck (triangle) and Dessau (home to one of the three Bauhaus schools).”The vision of Bauhaus paved the way for graphic design and the modern age. 100 years on, its incredible influence can be seen all around and continues to be explored in interior design.” Bauhaus in your house.
