Habitus Loves… Bauhaus-Inspired Pieces

Habitus Living celebrates the Bauhaus’ centenary with 10 pieces inspired by the influential 20th century design school.


Monument Collection by Daniel Boddam

Daniel Boddam’s Monument Collection is inspired by the simplified and streamlined works of modernist sculptor Constantin Brâncuși. The table is grounded with a pyramidal form, reminiscent of the elemental geometric pieces of Josef Hartwig’s wooden chess set for the Bauhaus in 1924.

Cabin Collection by Sarah Gibson & Nicholas Karlovasitis for DesignByThem

The Cabin Collection explores geometric forms, upholstered in textiles of primary and secondary colours. Instructors at the Bauhaus taught and developed colour theory, including Wassily Kandinsky who hoped to discover a universal correspondence between form and colour, and Johannes Itten who imposed a logical structure upon the colour spectrum.

Nave Chair by Skeehan Studio

The recently launched Nave Chair has a slender frame made with tubular forms reminiscent of Marcel Breuer’s iconic chairs. The frame is refined to its essential structural elements and gently cradles its upholstered forms, in a similar manner to the B3 Club Chair.

Paperclip by Seaton McKeon

Paperclip is a durable outdoor furniture range constructed from mild steel with a wire or perforated sheet metal seat and backrest. While metal is a now common material for furniture, the Bauhaus first introduced it in a domestic environment, most notably by Marcel Breuer who was inspired by the tubular steel frame of his Adler bike.
