“Not the form in itself can be the goal, instead the form needs to adapt to existing circumstances as a ‘servant’ because only from quality of life, true form intensity can accrue,” Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The Stuttgart Werkbund Exhibition from 1927, which is essential for Bauhaus and was hosted by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, will celebrate its 90th anniversary in 2017. The former basic idea to combine art and craft to create a clear, yet functional language of form is a guiding principle for L&C stendal’s product development to this day. “We try to bring the Bauhaus’ basic ideas in line with today’s lived aesthetics and the corresponding demands on living and working,” explains a member of L&C stendal’s executive board.
