1925 the first sales catalogue of the bauhaus was published. This now rare document was an early typographic masterwork of the young Herbert Bayer (1900-1985) and contains the descriptions of the most iconic works of the bauhaus workshops by Marianne Brandt, Marcel Breuer, Wilhelm Wagenfeld a.o.

This famous document will be part of the presentation of the galerie ulrich fiedler in the Collections section together with a comprehensive group of works of the bauhaus workshops in metal, ceramic, furniture, lightings, typography and photography including works which were promoted in the 1925 publication.

Marcel Breuers' famous Lattenstuhl will be shown and several pieces of the rare metalworks by Marianne Brandt, experimental ceramics by Theodor Bogler and Otto Lindig and a table lamp by Wilhelm Wagenfeld, which is supposed the only surviving example of this model.

1938 Herbert Bayer was commissioned by Walter Gropius, both of them started already a career in the US, to design the first Bauhaus exhibition after the closure of the school in the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

The gallery’s booth will be inspired by this design and the selection of exhibits is very close to Gropius choice of 1938. It will be the first time, that such an important group of bauhaus works will be available to the market in London.
