"To me, Bauhaus means clarity and aesthetics"
Steal the style with Lukas, visual merchandiser and the professional Bauhaus superfan behind interior.klassisch.zeitlos.
"To me, Bauhaus means clarity and aesthetics," explains Lukas. "I love creating a design statement with less, rather than more.” His favourite interior space is the living room, and his is flooded with light – both natural and artificial. Table lamp Cubelight CL1, from designer Mathias Schifferdecker’s 2012 collection, reframes the Bauhaus concept in a thoroughly modern form. And Lukas’ favourite is the classic Wagenfeld lamp from 1924 – such a paragon of the style that it’s often referred to simply as a ‘Bauhaus lamp’.
Form Follows Function
With a century of the Bauhaus movement to draw upon, contemporary German design is steeped in innovation. The clarion call of the early modernist school of art, “form follows function” still underpins the best of German design today.
Minimalist, composed and understated, lighting pieces inspired by Bauhaus, such as the Tecnolumen range, make the perfect addition to our modern living spaces. The emphasis on function and simple practicality in lighting helps create peaceful, calm, stylish interiors.
