Jay Gard

Colour extravaganza – Thonet design classic featured in Bauhaus museum

Jay Gard creates a special edition of the B 9 tubular steel stool for visitor seating at the Bauhaus Museum Dessau, plus two limited ‘artist’s editions’

The Bauhaus centenary was cause for a multitude of celebrations in 2019. The Bauhaus Dessau Foundation opened a new museum that showcases an extensive collection of original pieces with a connection to the famous art school, as well as contemporary work. One of these pieces is the B 9 tubular steel stool, first designed by Marcel Breuer in 1926 and now revamped by Jay Gard for the Bauhaus Museum Dessau and Thonet GmbH: there are precisely 100 of these one-off colourful stools designed by Gard as visitor seating for the museum. The colour concept of his bright artwork entitled “Margaretha” is based on the hues of a children’s room carpet designed by Margaretha (Grete) Reichardt, one of the most successful Bauhaus artists, in 1929. He has also designed two artist’s editions (Margaretha 2 and 3), which can be purchased from the museum shop.
