Sick of centuries of decorative design, a group of young architects under Walter Gropius started the Bauhaus movement in Weimar, believing firmly that by bringing design back to the basics would improve life. Bauhaus' top years were in the late 1920s, before Nazi politics branded it 'culturally bolshevistic'. Many members emigrated to the USA, and work continued there. The museum holds a large room with examples of Bauhaus interiors, models of buildings and a collection of original furniture. Bauhaus' influence on everyday design is immense - after a visit here, you’ll start noticing it everywhere.
