Josef Albers Inspired Items for your interior design project
Josef Albers was a German-born artist and educator, trained at the Bauhaus and who later settled in the US. His work, both in Europe and in the United States, formed the basis of some of the most influential art education programs of the twentieth century.
He is best remembered for his work as an abstract painter and theorist favouring a disciplined approach to composition. He is most famous for all the hundreds of artworks that make up the series, Homage to the Square.
We hunt down some contemporary art and products that honour Albers style.
