Bauhaus. The most influential art school of the 20th century
Clean, reduced forms, functional details and classic colours are core components of the Bauhaus movement.
These principles are also the inspiration behind the products designed by LEUCHTTURM1917. Consequently, we created an edition comprising notebooks, pen loops and pencils. Our tribute to the revolutionary style of Bauhaus.
Creativity is born in the mind
Wassily Kandinsky, painter and teacher of the Bauhaus movement, summed it up in the following statement: “Everything starts from a dot.”
Creativity is born in the mind. But if it is to be given to the world, it must come out of the head, through the hand onto a sheet of paper and always begins with a point. The first point of contact between thought and paper - a decisive moment.
So decisive that we want to celebrate this moment with the Bauhaus Edition. Consisting of notebooks, pen loops and pencils that recall the revolutionary style of Bauhaus with their shape, colour and fine details.
As inspiration for all creative minds who want to create visionary shapes and functions with their own hands and put the best ideas on paper. Because we know: "Everything starts from a dot."
The history behind Bauhaus
No other school of art has influenced modern design as much as the Bauhaus. Established in 1919 in Weimar, it revolutionised aesthetic and architectural conceptions.
The Staatliches Bauhaus, now commonly known simply as Bauhaus, was an art school founded by Walter Gropius. It sought to unite art, technology and crafts in a way that was revolutionary for its time. One of its objectives was to find ways in which industrial manufacturing techniques could be used to combine individual artistic vision, modernism and economically competitive construction.
Bauhaus continues to be the most important twentieth-century school of architecture and design, and of fine and applied art, and it influences aspects of our lives right up to the present day.
