Bauhaus interior style Part II

In the search for new ways to use less wood, professionals create composite materials with good technical performance. In the first place is laminated - glued wood. Her first craftsman was the Finnish architect Alvar Aalto. Like any artist, he has his preference for artistic expression and interior design. He works primarily with natural materials and is committed to the simple, unornamented things that are in harmony with the human body. Deep admiration of the great artist to the beauty of the wood is rooted in the traditions of the Finnish way of life, but technology also excites him.

 Thanks to the flexibility of the laminated wood, furniture from this material have smooth shapes, consistent with the anatomical features of the human body. Due to the severe shortage of wood and opportunities for mass production, in the household more often are used metal furniture, plastic and glass. These materials offer great opportunity in terms of the formation and construction of modern furniture. Properties of metal, as a material allow the construction of furniture that regardless of its visual lightness are strong and durable. Large effect have combined metal furniture with wood, marble, glass and others materials. Although the furniture has been known since antiquity, their prevalence is typical for the period after World War II.
      The production of modern metal furniture with original forms associated with the activities of the world's first university for art design, industrial construction and scientific experimentation "Backhaus". This is international school uniting some of the best in the world, architects, designers, painters and sculptors, photographers, which are all related to industrial production.
     Today plastic furniture increasingly wider used in the interior of the housing is called Bauhaus. The first design development of interior elements of synthetic materials appeared after World War II. These are the chairs of Architects Eero Saarinen, Panton Mario and Dzanutso. They prove that any new plastic material requires a specific form in practice. Plastic as a material is creating opportunities for the development of modern forms of furniture with volume coloration. In recent years, the impulses for determining the shapes come more from the Italians, who are characterized by extravagance and formalism.

 Thus began his time with the halo of divine purpose passed through cult decorations of the ancient world, rational forms of ancient Greece and Rome and representative decoration, the archetype of modern furniture stand on the threshold of barbarian Europe. From here, taken ​​by the naive desire for the comforts of the early Middle Ages, the enthusiasm of the Gothic, visceral seriousness of the Renaissance splendor of the Baroque, pampered playfulness of Rococo, sobering femininity of classicism, showiness of the Empire, Biedermeier and the warmth of the elegant severity of the vein of Art Nouveau, barely in our century, already confident in the strength of their capabilities, the furniture is entering the homes of all people. And their shapes have always been such as they was dictated by the modern lifestyle.
