Bauhaus Rewritten

To mark the centenary of the Bauhaus, the Design Museum has commissioned Pentagram partner Sascha Lobe to design a pedestrian crossing for London Design Festival 2019.

What to expect

Bauhaus Rewritten pays homage to the women of the Bauhaus, whose achievements are all too often overlooked in design history.

The names of pioneering designers including Anni Albers, Gertrud Arndt, Marianne Brandt and Ise Gropius, will feature in a typographic layout among glyphs that Lobe and his team created while designing the new identity for the Bauhaus Archive in Berlin last year.

The crossing is situated on Kensington High Street at the junction with Abingdon Road, moments from the Design Museum and launched to coincide with the start of London Design Festival 2019.

The crossing is one of a series of Creative Crossings on Kensington High Street that also includes Japan House. Creative Crossings is a project in collaboration with the Kensington High Street Business Forum and is supported by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
