Businessman and art collector Hermann Lange entertained a close connection to Mies van der Rohe and interior designer Lilly Reich. From 1927 to 1930 Rohe and Reich designed Lange's home, Haus Lange in Krefeld, as well as the 'Crous' apartment for Lange's eldest daughter and her husband in Berlin. The couple took the decor and furnishings for this apartment ‚ down to the bell plate ‚ to all of their later apartments, even into the 1990s.

This volume is the first to present many of van der Rohe's and Reich's furniture pieces, as well as the original decor from Haus Lange (now a museum), thus providing new insights into the collaboration of the two designers.
