Simple Bauhaus Throw
Knit a blanket inspired by the clean lines of this
early modernist art movement. BY LISA SHOBHANA MASON
On any given Saturday, you might find me strolling
around a museum or gallery. I enjoy viewing artists’
unique interpretations of universal themes and
elements, and I’m drawn to the repetition of various designs
throughout the ages. From the bold, outsider art vibe of the
Gee’s Bend quilts to the vivacious designs of the late 1960s,
great artworks and movements influence and inspire many
of my pieces.
When I designed this blanket, I was thinking of the Bauhaus
art movement with its stern and unadorned style. My aim was
to create a piece that is sleek and clean, as well as moody and
sumptuous. This throw adds warmth to an ultramodern decor,
giving the Bauhaus Geometric Throw a 21st-century look.
