Bauhaus Special Edition

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.” This quote, embossed on the cover, underlines the fact that a creative mind puts its ideas down on paper, starting with a dot. The first point of contact between thought and paper – a decisive moment –  indeed, so decisive, that we are dedicating this special edition to it. Special details include the coloured fore edge as well as the colour-coordinated dotted ruling.

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.

Today, one hundred years after the founding of the Bauhaus school of architecture, the prevalence of interesting buildings, décor and furnishings in the Bauhaus style stand testament to the revolutionary ideas of the movement. The guiding principle was to unite architecture, art and technology and this is what makes the Bauhaus style so special, even today. 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.
