This collection is a nod towards the Bauhaus School in Germany. The school is often referred to as the "father of modernism." It is most notably recognized for the use of basic shapes and primary colors. Students were taught that everything they created should be functional, unique, economical, and durable.
An interesting fact about the Bauhaus School was that when the Nazi Regime shut it down in 1933 and took it over for their headquarters many of the staff and students being Jewish and Communist followers fled to countries all over the world. As a result, the Bauhaus movement became international and can still be seen in many forms of art and architecture today.
