The Bauhaus was the most influential modernist art school of the 20th century. Its emphasis was to unite art and industrial design by combining fine art and craftsmanship. It exposes the mentalities of "truth to materials," "less is more," and "form follows function." It was focused on using new modern materials and simple shapes to create beautifully designed and functional buildings, sculptures, and furniture with a focus on mass production. The Bauhaus movement has long been synonymous with bold, rational, and functional structures in art, architecture, and design.
