NEW YOUTUBE SERIES FROM DW EUROMAXX "HOW TO BAUHAUS" - In 1919 the German design school ‘Bauhaus’ opened its doors to students, introducing the world to the iconic style of the same name. Bauhaus is modern, stylistic, minimalistic, and it may have been 100 years since the iconic school opened (and 86 years since it closed) but its influence is still very much present today.
What makes Bauhaus so timeless is its simplistic style, which also makes it accessible for people new to design. To celebrate Bauhaus and introduce it to those who may not have thought about utilizing it, German YouTube channel DW Euromaxx has created an entire series dedicated to the style.
The series, titled How to Bauhaus, is hosted by architect Van Bo Le-Mentzel, and follows a simple step-by-step process, easy to recreate even for novices, so people can bring a little Bauhaus into their own homes.
In one episode Van Bo creates a lamp out of a single metal rod and other items you may have collecting dust around your home. With just a few simple steps he is able to craft a stunning lamp, which despite the 100-year-old Bauhaus influence, doesn’t look out of place in a modern home.
If wiring a lamp may seem a little daunting, why not try Van Bo’s simple wooden stool design, made out of just a few pieces of wood, some screws, and some bright colored paint. This one takes just a few steps, but the final product is versatile and looks sleek and stylish.
The series is a love letter to Bauhaus, with three episodes currently available on the DW Euromaxx YouTube channel and more due in the coming weeks. It introduces Bauhaus to those new to design, allowing viewers to build furniture and appliances which may not take as much planning or skill as you might expect.
The original Bauhaus school may have closed in 1933, but DW Euromaxx and Van Bo are ensuring that anyone can introduce it into their homes, Bauhaus style. Check out and subscribe to the DW Euromaxx YouTube channel for more of their amazing videos.
