Although Bauhaus only existed for 14 years (1929-1933), this institute is considered one of the most influential modernist design and art schools. Bauhaus is regarded as the cradle of modern design. The exhibition aims to show the development from Jugendstil between 1896 and 1914 to the closure of Bauhaus in 1933. In this context, the museum presents its collection of furniture and everyday objects from this period.
