Intermezzo
On Collecting:
The Architect’s Workplace Friedrich Karl Engemann

13 February – 7 June 2020
Bauhaus Museum Dessau

The focus is on the bookcase and work cupboard from Friedrich Karl Engemann's living room and study. The Bauhäusler's design approach is evident in the four houses he designed in 1929/30 in the Fischereiweg. Engemann designed the entire furnishings for his own house. The special feature was the multifunctional book and work cupboard: a hybrid of a living room cupboard, drawing table, writing table and graphics cupboard.
