Bauhaus side table, model 715 by Emile Guyot, 1930
[SOLD] Side table or bar trolley in the best traditional Bauhaus sense. Every line is perfect and well thought. How modern does this still looks after almost 100 years! Like so many designers and architects in those days, Emile Guyot was inspired by the avant-gardistic movement. With the model 715, Guyot showed to have a trained eye for modern design. Model 715 was produced in former Eastern Europe.
Bauhaus—literally translated to “construction house”—originated as a German school of the arts in the early 20th century. Founded by Walter Gropius, the school eventually morphed into its own modern art movement characterized by its unique approach to architecture and design.
Bauhaus interiors are renowned for their simplicity and openness. The iconic furniture that did adorn these spaces was always highly intentional. Chairs, for instance, were reimagined by Marcel Breuer, who was the head of the cabinet-making workshop at the Bauhaus in Dessau. He wanted to create minimalistic and mass-producible pieces that were made mostly of metal.
Look at the stunning details of this side table with the original red end tips on the tubular frame and its Marbrite glass shelves.
