The Bauhaus revolutionized the modern world by rethinking every tenet of artistic and domestic life. From fine art, to theater design to utilitarian items, everything was creatively redesigned to follow the simplified and progressive theories put forth by the school. Dell's Tea Infuser illustrates how a utilitarian object can be raised to the caliber of fine art through good design.
