[Translate to English:] Text

Breuer and other Bauhaus designers considered balance, harmony and proportion coupled with simple, functional forms to be the basis of intelligent design. They also applied this principle to the furniture. As a result, the nest of four tables can be stacked and easily transported as a set. Furthermore, their surfaces combine easy care with aesthetic styling and colour design.
