Bauhaus visit 2

Extra attention deserves also the lightning of the spaces as here in the room of Walter Gropius.

Making use of the just invented glow lamp this design of student Max Krajewski used the electrical tubing also as construction material for the lighting in a very thin and clear constructional way. Its unsurpassed even until this day. He called it Soffitten lampen. In the other buildings of the Bauhaus in Dessau you find more of this lamps and armatures.

The staircases had special art ornaments made by students. All destroyed as entartete kunst but thanks to some remaining photographs recovered as this one from which I don't know the students name.

On the second floor you'd find this sign in the typical bauhaus colors and lettering made by graphical student Herbert Bayer, a pupil of Wassily Kandinsky. Biebkriebels show some more photo's of our visit here.
