Bauhaus is one of the most influential movements in contemporary design, even after 100 years since its emergence. And it was born in Germany. Unsurprisingly, contemporary German design often celebrates this movement with innovative products and spaces that give a nod to Bauhaus principles. Here you can discover some of the latest designs created by talented German designers. From furniture and lighting to sustainable accessories and cutting-edge products, these projects are both creative and inspiring.
Wherever you look, chances are you’ll find some references to Bauhaus among contemporary German design projects. For example, one design collective focuses on creating timeless furniture that reinterprets Bauhaus design principles in contemporary products. Another studio has created a lighting collection inspired by the design movement. Featuring geometric shapes, these modular pendants allow the user to create different compositions that are both imaginative and eye-catching. On this page, you can also browse through a wide variety of projects, from furniture and lighting design to home accessories, flatware, electric scooters, backpacks, and sculptural kitchen knives.
Similarly to other contemporary designers from around the world, German designers focus on sustainability when creating new products. Many German designs also reference nature with creative and bold details. Here you can find coat hangers inspired by a forest and tree branches or a sustainable home for bees designed to resemble the natural habitat of honey bees, tree hollows. Young designers also push the limits of sustainable design with groundbreaking concepts. A bio sneaker made from biodegradable materials allows the user to either recycle it at the end of its life or turn it into compost.
