In April 1919, Walter Gropius wrote his Bauhaus manifesto. In it, he called for art schools to return to craftsmanship, leading to the development of a design and architectural style of plain and simple forms. The Bauhaus may have only existed for 14 years, but it continues to inspire numerous artists, designers and architects. To mark its 100th anniversary, Warema is presenting sun shading solutions that perfectly match the values and style of the Bauhaus while also fulfilling today's demands for state-of-the-art technologies.
House facades in the Bauhaus style often feature large window fronts that require stylish sun shading solutions. All-glass corner windows are the key element in creating a unique ambience. For corner windows, Warema has developed special external venetian blinds with no unwanted guiding elements.

The Bauhaus design aimed to improve people's living conditions. Healthy living still plays a key role today, for example when using smart control systems in sun shading solutions to create the perfect ambience with high daylight quality.

The Bauhaus broke with design and layout conventions, focusing on people and their needs. Today, people want to integrate modern outdoor living into their everyday lives – flexibly and regardless of the weather, something only possible with the right sun shading system.

The Bauhaus created a revolutionary design style, experimenting with clear forms and new materials. Warema products augment this linearity by blending into the architecture of a building and visually enhancing the facade.

The Bauhaus style works on the principle that "form follows function". In a fast-paced world, sun shading systems increasingly focus on extending living space to the outside – for instance with practical, weatherproof awnings that are also aesthetically pleasing.

A new style was created by experimenting with vibrant colours. To this day, it is expressed by applying touches of colour to selected areas. This requires contemporary concepts and products with a vision. Warema offers trend-setting innovations with a focus on texture, aesthetics, functionality and combinability.

Both contemporary and Bauhaus architecture are holistic in nature. The aim must therefore be to integrate sun shading solutions into the facade. Warema's shaft awnings retract completely and disappear into the facade of the house where they are no longer visible.

Greater awareness of healthy living is giving rise to new living concepts; for example, home comfort is becoming increasingly important. Warema's sun shading systems create a unique lighting atmosphere, making your home a more relaxing place to be.

Safety functions are hugely important, particularly in floor-to-ceiling windows. Visio Neo fall protection can be planned together with external venetian blinds or roller shutters. This consists of a firmly integrated window pane that has no impact on visual appeal or brightness.
