100% Lambswool Scarf - Bauhaus
Past, present and future are strung together, as it were, on the thread of the wish that runs through them.
- Sigmund Freud, 'Creative Writers and Daydreaming' (1908)
As part of the Bauhaus centenary celebrations, Wallace Sewell have been authorised to create a re-edition of Gunta Stölzl’s original ‘Prellerdecke’ blanket. In 1926, the first Prellerhaus blankets were made in the weaving workshops. Wallace Sewell have realized and recreated the design, with help from Gunta Stölzl’s daughter, Monika Stadler, and archive drawings and photographs. Gunta Stölzl was fundamental to the Bauhaus weaving department. The original is a bold interaction of horizontal and vertical, positive and negative.
The Bauhaus group were contemporaries of Sigmund, Ernst and Anna Freud, some of whom also moved to Hampstead in exile in the 1930s, including their founder Walter Gropius.
