Fagus Factory model in plaster by Chisel & Mouse
A perfect decorative replica of the factory building now belonging to the GreCon Inc group, the original Fagus Factory represents the original work of modernist industrial architecture.
It was the first major building by Walter Gropius, famed for the Bauhaus architectural movement. Gropius designed a glass and steel construction. The windowed corners made it a hallmark for his brand new form of architecture.
The Fagus Factory in Alfeld – known also as Fagus Fabrik or Fagus Werk – was included on the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites in 2011.
Made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth and cool feel. Window frame and railings are made of etched brass.
