If the Barbican’s current Bauhaus exhibition has left you yearning for more, then look to 1stdibs.com for inspiration.
1stdibs, the world’s premier online luxury marketplace, showcases immediately available to buy curated items from 1,200 prestigious international dealers in the fields of art, antiques, design, jewellery and vintage fashion together on one website.
The Bauhaus style is easily recognizable – radically simplified forms that are both rational and functional that harnessed the potential of mass-production in the early 20th century. An interesting selection of Bauhaus pieces can be found on 1stdibs.com, especially from dealers based in the Benelux region who joined the site in April 2012. Among the items offered are a pair of D42 Bauhaus chairs by Mies van der Rohe, which can been seen in the Barbican exhibition.
