Worldwide, the centenary of the Bauhaus art school is celebrated in 2019. To LEUCHTTURM1917, Bauhaus has always been a source of inspiration for our product development, and we can truly relate to it. Consequently, we have decided to create a special edition in collaboration with the Bauhaus organisation.
Clean, reduced forms, functional details and colours are core components and form the basic principles of the Bauhaus approach. Wassily Kandinsky, painter, graphic artist, art theorist and teacher of the Bauhaus movement, summed it up with the following:
“Everything starts from a dot”.
Creativity emerges in the mind, but if it is to be given to the real world, it must leave the mind and travel through the hand to a sheet of paper, and always begins … with a dot. The first point of contact between thought and paper, a decisive moment.
Form follows function. Primal, primary and pure writing pleasure.
The special edition is comprised of notebooks, pencils and pen loops. All products show the official anniversary logo of Bauhaus Kooperation Berlin Dessau Weimar gGmbH.
A characteristic feature of the notebooks is the Wassily Kandinsky quote embossed on the front cover: “Everything starts from a dot.” The cover, fore-edge, flyleaf and linear print all come in a matching colour. A brief profile of Wassily Kandinsky is featured on the endpaper. These books contain all the well-known LEUCHTTURM1917 details, such as index, page numbers, 2 bookmarks and a sticker set for labelling and archiving.
Pen Loop and Pencils
Besides the special edition notebooks, there are matching pencils and pen loops which are colour coordinated and all feature the Kandinsky quote. Consequently, the products make up a complementary unit. The pencils and pen loops come in red, lemon, royal and black.
