More of Nicholas's books…
“[The Bauhauslers] were joined in their will to replace outmoded values for everyone, rather than to retreat to alternate lives for themselves alone. They were not revolutionaries who wanted to topple the existing framework, but pioneers who sought to transform it. The Bauhauslers respected what was best in the existing German culture; they did not unilaterally disparage all its traditions. They wanted to forge connections, to see their ways accepted and integrated. (362)”
Nicholas Fox Weber, The Bauhaus Group: Six Masters of Modernism

“Artists who shared (Paul) Klee's fundamental beliefs, such as (Piet) Mondrian, were searching for universal truths, often derived from nature and having "all-mighty power." For some, a traditional notion of God was part of this; for others, it was of no consequence. What mattered was not the precise character of the object of worship, but the shared belief in its superiority to the cult of self. (104)”
Nicholas Fox Weber, The Bauhaus Group: Six Masters of Modernism

“Marcel Breuer’s armchair, with its horsehair fabric stretched taut on an armature of tubular chrome, is one of the Bauhaus designs that has remained a classic.”
Nicholas Fox Weber, iBauhaus: The iPhone as the Embodiment of Bauhaus Ideals and Design
