La historia de la Bauhaus

Un recorrido visual por el legado de este célebre movimiento

Geométrico. Preciso. Discreto. El estilo de la Bauhaus se suele caracterizar por una combinación de artesanía y arte, que se manifiesta en la importancia que adquieren la forma y la función. La Prairie se inspira en los códigos de la Bauhaus para dotar a sus creaciones de la misma estética pura.
