Leuchtturm 1917 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.
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.
No other art school has left its mark on contemporary architecture as that of Bauhaus. Founded in Weimar in 1919, the Bauhaus movement revolutionised views on aesthetics and architecture in subsequent years. 100 years on, it can be said that Bauhaus was the most significant school of architecture, design as well as 20th-century free and applied arts.
Clean, reduced forms, functional details and colours are core components and form the basic principles of the Bauhaus movement. Leuchtturm 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.
