Fancy some Bauhaus designs?

Designtex, the company which makes wallpapers and fabrics for architecture, is making Bauhaus designs available again.

The Bauhaus will be well-known to anyone interested in design and the recent Anni Albers exhibition in London's Tate Modern proved the duarability of the ideas which came from the school. Now these designs are getting a new life. The new fabrics and wall coverings feature the work of Anni Albers and Gunta Stölzl from the school, and promise to bring these radical experimenters' work to new audiences. 

Incidentally, if you are in the UK or have access to BBC iPlayer you can catch a short documentary about Anni for another week or two. Head on over to https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0007vft for a happy half-hour.
