As part of the Bauhaus centenary celebrations, Wallace Sewell have been authorised to create a re-edition of Gunta Stölzl’s original ‘Prellerdecke’ blanket. The project was initiated by Jörg Klambt, founder of Designshop at Bauhaus Dessau; where in 1926, the first Prellerhaus blankets were made in the weaving workshops. The original design having been lost, Wallace Sewell have realized and recreated the design, with help from Gunta Stölzl’s daughter, Monika Stadler, and archive drawings and photographs.
Gunta Stölzl was fundamental to the Bauhaus weaving department and when the Bauhaus moved to Dessau, Stölzl, who was a master of the weaving workshop, designed a blanket for the ‘Prellerhaus’ student dormitories. The original is a bold interaction of horizontal and vertical, positive and negative.
