Congrès internationaux d'architecture moderne. Which was held in Frankfurt in 1929 and was focused on promoting functionalism in architecture through an evaluation of May's groundbreaking work.In 1938 Kramer emigrated to the United States and soon began work on a number of design projects, including a collaboration with the visionary Norman Bel Geddes on designs for the 1939 World's Fair in New York. He also had connections with the social theorists of the Frankfurt School and worked on commissions from Theodor Adorno at Institute for Social Research during its tenure in New York. Very good used condition with no significant damages, but expected minor surface wear reflecting decades of age and use. The handle and knob exhibit a beautiful patina. The matching knob is a rarity making this lot a fabulous Bauhaus period find. The b&W illustrations are taken from Siegfried Gronert, Türdrücker der Moderne: eine Designgeschichte (Door Handles of the Modern Period: A Design History), Franz Schneider Brakel (FSB), Walter Konig Verlag, Koln, 1991 pp 26-27. The final image is an archive photo of and New Frankfurt interior showing one of Kramer's door handle design in situ, taken around 1930. This scholarly German-language website is dedicated to the history of modernist door handles.
