Anton Lorenz: From Avant-Garde to Industry

Exhibitions
From
until
To mark the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus, the Vitra Design Museum is focusing on entrepreneur and designer Anton Lorenz. In 1925, Marcel Breuer was the first to use tubular steel to construct furniture at the Bauhaus in a move that would revolutionize modern living. Lorenz was one of the first to realise the material’s potential, and his deft use of patents and founding of new companies meant that he would soon become a key figure in tubular steel furniture’s success. The exhibition will present important documents from his estate as well as tubular steel furniture by Marcel Breuer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, and other designers in a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the avant-garde.
