The Belgian architect and designer Henry van de Velde (1863-1957) had trained as a painter but was so strongly influenced by the English Arts and Crafts movement of the late nineteenth century that he eventually turned his attention to applied arts and interior design.

Van de Velde was one of the most important representatives of the Raumkunstbewegung, a movement in architecture and interior design that grew out of the Jugendstil. The Raumkunst [or “space art”] movement concerned itself with a variety of architectural spaces: domestic interiors, sacred architecture, and public buildings.

In successful Raumkunst, all aspects of the interior – from construction elements like walls, floors, and ceilings, to lighting fixtures, furniture, and art objects – served the needs of the given space [Raum] with a complete, harmonious, and unified interior being the ultimate goal.

In 1900, he left Belgium for Germany, where his career took off. In 1906-07, he was named director of the School of Applied Arts [Kunstgewerbeschule] in Weimar (the predecessor to the Bauhaus) and participated in the Dresden exhibition with the dining room shown here.

Held in Dresden in 1906, the Third German Arts and Crafts Exhibition signaled a new direction in design and interior decoration, and led to the founding of the German Werkbund the following year. Info source: germanhistorydocs.ghi-dc.org
