Every artist has their studio, the place they go to make their ideas become real. For us, our studio shape shifts depending on where we are in our process. Here, we invite you to step into our own temporal atelier at our friend's pad in L.A. to catch a behind-the-scenes glimpse of our making of The Bauhaus Spirit Collection to create a production like this one never works alone. Instead it is synergy of creative minds and distinct perspectives that make our pieces come to life.About The Collection
What is it to believe in something so much that your passion infiltrates your every thought, move, and intention? We call that spirit, and that is exactly what our Bauhaus Spirit Collection seeks to explore. The Bauhaus, an experimental school in Germany, survived a bit more than a decade, from 1919 – 1933. During that short expanse of time, the artists of The Bauhaus created a powerful myriad of works and ways of working that would impact the world forever. Founded by German artist and architect Walter Gropius, it was intention that made The Bauhaus different. With a vision to expand art beyond the gallery walls and public salons of Paris to the broader world, the artists of The Bauhaus embarked on envisioning the entire building and creating everything from the structure to every moldable detail within it, declaring, "The ultimate goal of all art is the building!", and marking an essential return to craft for the artist at work.
Precursor to Modernism, The Bauhaus brought reductive, geometric aesthetics and a blending of form and function that continue to be a hallmark of design to this day. The school’s diverse perspectives did not stay constrained to straight lines and prescribed roles. There was a freedom and wildness inherent in The Bauhaus that we aim to capture throughout our collection of works. Try it for yourself and feel the kunstgeist - or art spirit - become something palpable that you can bring into your own life.
In the spirit of The Bauhaus, keep the art alive!

The Bauhaus curriculum began with an overarching half-year preliminary course, followed by specialized workshops, where students would apprentice for years. Eventually, select students would advance to the study of building, "the ultimate goal of all creative activity."
