As a brand name, "Bauhaus" truly came into its own in the 1980s with the widespread popularity of the Marcel Breuer tubular steel chair B3, known as the Wassily Chair, and the Wilhelm Wagenfeld glass and brass nickel-plated table lamp, called the Bauhaus Lamp. That a progressive and socially engaged design movement from the Weimar era should come to describe iconic status objects found in the offices of cultured corporations in the 21st century is curious, to say the least.
