‘Bauhaus 100’ BMW F 850GS by Krautmotors

Written by Martin Hodgson

Exactly a hundred years ago German architect Walter Gropius founded Staatliches Bauhaus, an art school whose philosophy was based on Gesamtkunstwerk, meaning ‘total work of art’. The institution would become incredibly influential in all areas of art and design and although it closed 80 years ago at the outbreak of World War II, its students would spread the philosophy around the globe. So to celebrate the centennial anniversary BMW commissioned artist and bike builder extraordinaire Rolf Reick of Krautmotors to build a motorcycle that would honour all the school represents. Presenting “Bauhaus 100”, a combination of BMW’s old and new, it’s a tribute and masterpiece.

INTERVIEW: Jay Donovan from Baresteel Design

Can you introduce yourself to our readers? Where you are from and what you do?

My name is Jay Donovan, I live in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada and I suppose I would say that I’m a metal fabricator/artist who is learning how to build motorcycles. While I definitely approach building in a very artistic way, my goal and intention is to continue exploring ways to do so that impede less upon function and grow the harmony between both a motorcycle’s static, or visual impact, and it’s kinetic function.
