Welcome to the Bauhaus Year: The Big Revival of Combined Primary Colours
Bauhaus is one hundred years old and the world of interiors is getting involved. The designs, with their geometric basic forms of squares, circles and triangles, adopt a clear chromatic position with their colour scheme.
The purity of blue, yellow and red as primary colours give clear signals in the style of Kandinsky. The Russian painter was one of the most important masters at the Bauhaus and characterised its colour theory and morphology which are still a trademark of the Bauhaus today.
Filtered through the anniversary, his colour psychology is gaining new popularity and enables bold and courageous statement pieces. As a counterbalance to the soft, tonal nuances in recent years, signal colours are coming back in details. They make a statement between black and white and can be positioned boldly in restrained colour schemes by those who have previously shied away from colour.

Patricia Urquiola, known for her use of bold colours, is the art director at Italian manufacturer Cassina. The staging at the Salone del Mobile was equally bold.
