The Deutscher Werkbund (German Work Federation) was a German association of architects, designers and industrialists, an important precursor to the Bauhaus.
The Werkbund was less an artistic movement than a state-sponsored effort to integrate traditional crafts and industrial mass-production techniques, to put Germany on a competitive footing with England and the United States.
The Werkbund commissioned van de Velde to build a theatre for its 1914 Cologne Exhibition in Cologne, the theatre which turned out to be his best work, and which only stood for one year before being destroyed as a result of World War I. Key dates of the Deutscher Werkbund:

 Deutscher Werkbund --  Encyclopædia Britannica
The Werkbund, which was founded in Munich in 1907, was composed of artists, artisans, and architects who designed industrial, commercial, and household products as well as practicing architecture.

Directed by architect Walter Gropius and, after 1926, housed in a building designed by him at Dessau, Germany, the Bauhaus produced designs for furniture and household goods that are still used today and laid the groundwork for the creation of a modern aesthetic that dominated the next...

He adamantly kept the Werkbund distinct from functionalism and expressionism, with the Werkbund staying equally balanced rather than at one extreme or the other of the form-function issue that has and will forever plague architects in their relentless pursuit of a personal ideology.
In the opening pages of the chapter on Werkbund and Futurism, he takes advantage of the naivete of the beginning student to fill them with architectural dogma that is only as factual as any religion.

 Design Styles
It was originally underpinned by a desire for a design ethos that reflected ideals of democracy and social reform, and a belief that the world of art and the manufacturing industry could be reconciled in order to provide all levels of society with well designed, mass produced goods.
Early groups that were instrumental in the development of the Modern Movement include the Deutscher Werkbund in Germany before World War 1, and the De Stijl group in the Netherlands after 1917.
These principles were put into practice most notably, and with the most lasting influence, at the Bauhaus in Germany in the 1920s and early 1930s.

 Articles - International style (architecture)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Researchers find significant contemporary common ground among the Dutch de Stijl movement, the work of visionary French/Swiss architect Le Corbusier, and various German efforts to industrialize craft traditions, which resulted in the formation of the Deutscher Werkbund, large civic worker-housing projects in Frankfurt and Stuttgart, and, most famously, the Bauhaus.
The ideals of the style are commonly summed up in three slogans: ornament is a crime, form follows function, and Le Corbusier's description of houses as "machines for living".
In 1927, one of the first and most defining manifestations of the International Style was the Weissenhof Estate in Stuttgart, built as a component of the exhibition "Die Wohnung," organized by the Deutscher Werkbund, and overseen by Mies van der Rohe.

Although the ideas behind the International Modern Style at first appear to come from several different directions, including the Deutscher Werkbund, the De Stijl group, the Vkhutemas, Le Corbusier and the Bauhaus, these are all very strongly linked together.
The Bauhaus seemed to act as a magnet to all the leading designers, architects and artists of the time, some of which had already proved themselves as modern visionaries and had been shrewdly recognised by the Director, Walter Gropius.
Le Corbusier, Gropius and Mies van der Rohe had all worked for Peter Behrens, who was involved with the Deutscher Werkbund.
