Design in a nutshell: Bauhaus.
This short video by Clive Hilton for Open University gives a quick lesson about the Bauhaus. While it is charming and informative, I do disagree with one point. The video states that Marcel Breuer's cantilevered Cesca Chair was inspired by a bicycle, but it was really his Wassily Chair, designed three years before the Cesca, that evolved from the graceful handlebars of the Alder bicycle.
What do you think, how bauhaus is your house?
