Good things really do come in small packages — as is the case with these mini modernist Bauhaus Models  crafted by Auckland based painter and sculptor Gidon Bing and styled by Katie Lockhart . The diminutive Bauhaus  dwellings were created as a promotional showcase for New Zealand paint company, Renese , to demonstrate their Karen Walker Paint  charts. The inspiration for the dollhouse models was derived from “the Bauhaus school of the 1920s whose concept was to create and combine colors from an emotional point of view rather than a technical one.” This artful nod to Bauhaus architecture blurs the lines between child’s play and grownup art appreciation, proving that great design spans the ages.
