Furnished with Bauhaus chairs, tables, couches, and other furniture, this temporary lounge at MoMA accompanies the soon-to-close exhibition Bauhaus 1919-1933: Workshops for Modernity. There's a wide selection of books and catalogues to peruse, as well as screenings of documentary films that trace the history and development of the school, including Oskar Schlemmer’s Triadic Ballet (1927) and the film of the reconstructions of Schlemmer's Bauhaus Dances of the 1920s (1982/84).

Added bonus: On Thursdays from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m., visitors can play chess on a set designed by Bauhaus sculptor Joseph Hartwig.
