LEUCHTTURM1917 has won the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2019 in the category “Office supplies and stationery” for its special edition “100 Years Bauhaus”.
To LEUCHTTURM1917, Bauhaus has always been a source of inspiration for our product development, and therefore we have created the special edition to celebrate its centenary in 2019. The notebooks, pencils, Pen Loops and the unique display reflect the Bauhaus design principles in every detail. The renowned Red Dot Design Award now honours the common design roots of LEUCHTTURM1917 and Bauhaus.
The Red Dot Design Award
The Red Dot Design Award is one of the major design awards worldwide. Products are awarded by the Red Dot jury for good design quality and high innovation potential. Laureates set trends in the design industry, paving the way to future concepts which shape our everyday life.
The Bauhaus design school
The Bauhaus can be seen as the most significant school of design of the 20th century. It is world-famous for its particular approach and profound influence upon subsequent developments in art, graphic design, architecture, interior design, industrial design and typography.
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. All products of the special edition “100 Years Bauhaus” show the official anniversary logo of Bauhaus Kooperation Berlin Dessau Weimar gGmbH and feature a quote by Bauhaus teacher Wassily Kandinsky: “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.
