Ludwig Mies van der Rohe & Lilly Reich
Furniture and Interiors
Businessman and art collector Hermann Lange maintained a close working relationship with Mies van der Rohe and interior designer Lilly Reich, their associations involving family, friends, and Lange’s company. From 1927 to 1930, this resulted in structures such as Lange’s own home, Haus Lange in Krefeld, as well as the “Crous” apartment for Lange’s eldest daughter and her husband in Berlin. The couple took the decor and furnishings for this apartment—down to the bell plate—to all of their later apartments, into the nineties. This volume is therefore the first to present many of van der Rohe’s and Reich’s furniture pieces, as well as the original decor from Haus Lange (now a museum), thus providing new insights into the collaboration of the two designers.

The Bauhaus was founded with the aim of linking fine arts with crafts. Works by women were overlooked for a long time, or they have fallen into obscurity in the intervening decades. To succeed in the new fields, women not only needed plenty of self-confidence, they also had to be better at their work than their male colleagues.
