Christian DELL( Hanau 1893 - 1974 Wiesbaden)
Master in charge of the metalwork department at the Staatliches Bauhaus in Weimar
Dell was an apprentice silversmith at Schleissner & Sohne's silver factory in Hanau, Germany, from 1907 to 1912. In 1913, he enrolled at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Weimar, where he trained under Henry van de Velde. After World War 1, he worked for Hestermann & Ernst in Munich, initially as a journeyman, and then as a master silversmith. In 1920, he worked in the silver workshop of Emil Lettre in Berlin, before returning to Hanau to study at the Zeichenakademie. After a brief period spent running his own workshop, Dell became master of the metal workshop at the Bauhaus Weimar from 1922 to 1925, where he worked closely with Laszlo Moholy-Nagy. Dell stood out from his Bauhaus colleagues in believing that designers should not wholly reject historicism. He taught at the Frankfurt ArtSchool from 1926 to 1933, directing the metal workshop and designing lighting which was mass-produced by Kaiser and Rondella. The Nazi Party did not allow him to stay there in 1933, but Walter Gropius offered him a job in the United States. However, Dell decided to remain in Germany. Therefore In 1933, the Nazi regime removed him from the faculty of the Frankfurt Art School. In 1939, he set up his own jewellery business in Wiesbaden. He died in Wiesbaden in 1974.
As Bauhaus designer Christian Dell became one of the leading characters behind the innovative and pioneering designs in the early 1930‘ies Bauhaus era. Dell’s influence was trend setting and visible in many designs throughout decades.
Christian Dell’s KAISER idell series was and still is timeless. The series was produced throughout many years and its uniqueness is to compare with the German design icons: VW Beetle and Ferdinand Porsches model 911.
Christian Dell’s lamp designs are exhibited at the "Museum of Modern Art" in New York.
