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.
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 colors 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.
A characteristic feature of the “100 Years Bauhaus” special edition 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 color. 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 labeling and archiving.
LEUCHTTURM1917 has been manufacturing high-quality stationery since, you guessed it, 1917.
