Women of Bauhaus Get a Spotlight in Rug Collection by Lulu and Georgia
The Bauhaus men tend to get much of the spotlight. Author and interior designer Nina Freudenberger seeks to remedy that by looking to the women of the movement for her four-piece line of flatweave and hand-knotted rugs for lifestyle brand Lulu and Georgia. Each, in earthy cotton-wool and available in seven sizes, is named after and reflects the style of a Bauhaus doyenne. There’s Marli, a color-block pattern reminiscent of the weavings by Marli Ehrmann, and Benita, an abstract mosaic akin to artwork by Benita Koch-Otte, as well as other patterns representing Anni Albers and Otti Berger. “Not only is their work objectively beautiful,” Freudenberger says, “but these women also led the way through creativity and innovation.”
