The late Gunta Stölzl ran her own textile studio in Switzerland for 30 years, but she remains best known for her stint as director of the Bauhaus' weaving studio and the first woman to attain master status at the legendary German school of art and architecture. Some of Stölzl's early rug designs -- renderings on paper from the 1920s -- are being produced for the first time and released by Design Within Reach. The pieces, all hand-spun wool, include the 11-foot-long "Plate 160" ($5,000, below).

Fleetwood Mac "Extended Play" (Fleetwood Mac) The four songs on the new Fleetwood Mac EP - which the legendary pop-rock outfit put up for sale on iTunes last month with little warning - arrive steeped in echoes of the past, in at least one case quite literally: "Without You," a strummy acoustic number overlaid with harmony vocals by Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, reportedly dates to sessions for the singers' 1973 album as a long-haired vocal...

"We played Dallas recently and everybody stood exactly three feet away from the stage," recalled Love and Rockets' singer-guitarist Daniel Ash. "It was so different from anything we had encountered before. There were mostly 15- and 16-year-olds and nobody actually got out of line. . . . They were very naive, which is really quite refreshing, in a way."

ONE DAY IN 1925 Marcel Breuer, the precocious, 24-year-old head of the furniture workshop at the Bauhaus design school in Dessau, Germany, was riding his Adler bicycle. An idea came to him, Eureka-like: If tubular steel was strong and light enough to support him while pedaling, it should also do for making furniture. So he immediately telegraphed the Adler factory to propose a joint venture. Predictably rebuffed, he hired a plumber adept at welding pipe ends together and made a prototype of what is now the oldest tubular chair in production.

NEW YORK - The Hungarian-born Bauhaus architect Marcel Breuer once conjured the importance of the building block, that quintessence of child's play, as a route to good design. After receiving an honorary degree from the university in his childhood town of Pécs, he explained: "When children play with building blocks, they discover that they fit together, because they are square.... Then, the child discovers that the blocks are empty, that the sides turn into walls, and that there is a roof and a structure....

When the L.A. design firm Commune shared photos of its new pop-up in Japan -- a traveling shop and cafe featuring collaborations with Heath Ceramics and"Beginners" director and artist Mike Mills, among others -- what initially caught our eye weren't Mills' limited-edition prints, which are great, but rather a series of fingerprint graphics lining one wall. It turns out the prints in question belong to the thumb of Bauhaus artist Herbert Bayer. Commune uses the thumbprint as a maker's mark, its signature "for anything we do that is handcrafted," Roman Alonso, a partner in the firm, said via email in response to our inquiry.

When the Bauhaus accepted her into its weaving workshop in 1922, Anni Albers initially turned down the offer. Now 87 and a noted weaver, designer and printmaker, she then thought the craft was "sissy" stuff. "I wanted to do a real man's job in building the New World, in constructing the New Society," said Albers by phone recently from her Connecticut home. But she reconsidered. "It was my only way to get into the Bauhaus (the German art school), which was a very exciting, forward-looking place."

Art Cologne appointed Los Angeles gallery owner Daniel Hug to be its new director, part of a drive to boost attendance and win back top collectors and dealers. Hug succeeds Gerard Goodrow, who left in January under pressure from Cologne dealers concerned about the future of the 40-year-old German event. Art Cologne drew just 60,000 visitors last year, 10,000 fewer than in 2006. In February, the fair announced it was scrapping a sister event on the Spanish island of Majorca. Hug, 39, will take up his new position on May 1, after this year's event, which takes place April 16 to 20. He has dual Swiss and U.S. nationality and is the grandson of the Hungarian artist Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, once a professor at the Bauhaus school.
