The most comprehensive book on the furniture, textiles and other works of two of the most important and influential artists of the twentieth century. Featuring the many innovative objects that the couple designed while teaching at the Bauhaus in Germany and after their move to the United States in 1933, this book is essential reading for anyone interested in twentieth-century design.
