Jasper Morrison. Thingness 
22.03.-23.10.2017

With Jasper Morrison. Thingness, the Bauhaus-Archiv in Berlin is showing the English designer’s first retrospective and presenting the extensive body of work he has created over the last 35 years. Morrison’s furniture, cooking utensils, tableware series, lamps, clocks and other everyday objects are defined by an intensive occupation with these objects’ function and use. The central focus is not on form in itself, but on the functionality of the objects, developed on the basis of precise observation. Morrison’s precise attention to the atmosphere of a modern living environment, to historical links, to the production process and to the material leads us to consider central questions of design, like those that already moved the members of the historical Bauhaus.

New temporary location!

The Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung at Klingelhöferstrasse is closed, as the museum building will be renovated and receive an extension. We are sorry for the inconvenience!

At the end of June 2018 we opened the temporary bauhaus-archiv / museum für gestaltung, our temporary location at Knesebeckstraße 1-2 (U Ernst-Reuter-Platz), which includes our bauhaus-shop. We are looking forward to seeing you there!

We will continue to provide topical and historical informationen for you on this website.
