Mies van der Rohe
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886–1969) trained and worked with architect Bruno Paul, who also designed furniture for Thonet. Mies van der Rohe was appointed director of the Bauhaus in Dessau. After it was closed by the Dessau City Parliament in 1932, she transformed the Bauhaus into a private school and moved it to Berlin. The Bauhaus in Berlin was raided by the Gestapo in April of 1933, and in July of that year, Mies van der Rohe initiated the self-dissolution of the Bauhaus in Berlin, most likely to also prevent the Nazi state from taking control of it.
