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.
LEUCHTTURM1917 celebrates the geometry of design and 100 years of Bauhaus with the “Everything starts from a dot.” centenary edition. Primal, primary and pure writing pleasure.
Honoured with the Red Dot Design Award 2019.
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.
Clean, reduced forms, functional details and colours are core components and form the basic principles of the Bauhaus movement. We have adopted the Bauhaus idea and created a special edition to mark the centenary of the birth of the Bauhaus movement, which is in line with the classic Bauhaus design elements. The products show the official anniversary logo of Bauhaus Kooperation Berlin Dessau Weimar gGmbH.
