The Design Museum Launches Bauhaus Road Crossing for London Design Festival

Pentagram partner Sascha Lobe has created a new London Design Festival installation, a Bauhaus road crossing titled 'Bauhaus Rewritten.' Commissioned by The Design Museum, the installation celebrates the women of Bauhaus.

The road installation pays homage to the women of the Bauhaus, whose achievements are all too often overlooked in design history. The names of pioneering designers including Anni Albers, Gertrud Arndt, Marianne Brandt and Ise Gropius, will feature in a typographic layout among glyphs that Lobe and his team created while designing the new identity for the Bauhaus Archive in Berlin last year.

The crossing will be situated on High Street Kensington at the junction with Abingdon Road, moments from the Design Museum and will launch to coincide with the start of London Design Festival. The crossing is one of a series of Creative Crossings on Kensington High Street that also includes Japan House.
