A piece of the Bauhaus

“…form must follow function…”

Walter Gropius

The Bauhaus school was found by Walter Gropius in Weimar, Germany, immediately after WW1. It became the most influential 20th century art, design and architectural movement, based on the merging of art and industry. The school succumbed to Nazi pressure in 1933. The ideas lived on. The LAMY 2000 fountain pen was designed in 1966 by Gerd Alfred Muller. The pen is a deliberate tribute to the Bauhaus. The iconic body is made of Makrolon – fibreglass resin. The nib is 14K gold plated with platinum to match the section. Still produced by LAMY, it is the longest production run of any fountain pen. #onlyinblack #letsmakelemonade
