Everything starts from a dot.

Wassily Kandinsky, painter and lecturer at the Bauhaus school, summed it up neatly when he said: ‘Everything starts from a dot.’ This quote highlights the fact that for creative minds, the process of committing ideas to paper via the hand begins with a dot on the page. The first point of contact between thoughts and paper – a crucial moment.

Clean, minimalist forms, functional details and classic colours are key features of the modern era’s most influential design school – and also the principles that have always guided the design of LEUCHTTURM1917 products.

As a tribute to the revolutionary Bauhaus style, we have created a special edition that encompasses a notebook, Pen Loop and Drehgriffel and whose form, colour and details honour the pioneering Bauhaus ethos.


Bauhaus-Drehgriffel Nr. 1

New: the Drehgriffel Nr. 1 in Bauhaus-design

Inspired by 1920s-style design and featuring a hexagonal barrel and tapered tip, the Drehgriffel Nr. 1 is an unmistakable and iconic writing instrument. Its pared-back design and great functionality reflect the principles and idea of the Bauhaus school, which guided us when creating the Drehgriffel Nr. 1.

A subtle dot on the twist button reminds users of Kandinsky’s motivational saying ‘Everything starts from a dot’. The colour scheme is inspired by the richly contrasting image compositions of Piet Mondrian.
