A is for Anni and Josef Albers
Anni and Josef Albers are the Bauhaus' best-known couple. Both Albers' started as students and went on to become masters, with Josef becoming head of the glass workshop and Anni leading the weaving workshop.
In glasswork and weaving respectively, both Josef and Anni created vivid explorations of geometry, colour and grids. Following the school's closure, the Albers' moved to America, where they were both prolific artists and educators until their deaths.

B is for Marcel Breuer
One of the many heavyweights to be educated and taught at the Bauhaus, Hungarian designer Marcel Breuer is equally known for his architecture and his tubular steel furniture.
At the design school, Breuer designed numerous pieces of furniture including the Model B3, better known as the Wassily Chair. Supported by the sale of his chairs, he set up an architecture practice, eventually moving to the United States where he designed over 100 buildings including the Metropolitan Museum of Art (now the Met Breuer).
