On the occasion of the Bauhaus centennial, Designtex celebrates the genius of Gunta Stölzl and Anni Albers. In 1919, women entering the Bauhaus were permitted to study only textiles and ceramics. Ironically, the weaving workshop ― under the leadership of Gunta Stölzl ― provided the school’s major source of revenue by creating the most commercially viable products. Stölzl, a German textile artist, developed the curriculum and became the only female Bauhaus master. Albers, an early student of Stölzl, reluctantly embraced weaving, but became the first textile artist to be featured in a solo exhibition at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art in 1949. The Bauhaus Project introduces two collections of upholstery and wallcovering: Designtex + Gunta Stölz and Designtex + Anni Albers. Working with the artists’ estates, we have selected original designs for modern re-creation that use today’s materials and technologies.
