Similar to the principles of Arts and Crafts design, the Bauhaus school believed an artist had a responsibility to meet the needs of society whether it was in graphic design, typography, architecture, interior design, or industrial design. Their goal was to merge the craft tradition with modern technology.
Sandy: The year before Ludwig Mies van der Rohe became director of the Bauhaus School in 1930, he designed the Barcelona chair. The functional, comfortable chair is ubiquitous in office buildings and homes. I would want a pair of these chairs in my home if my decor were modern.
Kelly: I would love this chair though it would not match a thing in my house. Again, not for snuggling but comfortable to hang in.
Sandy’s year long journey – going from being a right-hander to left-hander, and Kelly’s parallel trip as a left-hander doing things as a right-hander.
