School of Life created this exquisite set of notebooks in honour of The Bauhaus. Each notebook carries an introduction to a great Bauhaus artist on the inside front page, their name beautifully printed on the cover - and is otherwise empty for your own projects.

The Bauhaus (or literally, ‘the house of construction’) was founded in Weimar, shortly after the end of World War One. Its founder Walter Gropius wanted to remove ‘the class barriers’ between art and craft, or between engineering, urban planning and architecture. Gropius recognised that industrial production would overwhelmingly dominate, and his aim was to guide high-quality design for mass production consumer goods: chairs, lamps etc.

After being relocated to Dessau and then Berlin, the Bauhaus was closed in 1933, as it was perceived as ‘communist’ by the Nazi party, which had just come to power. Although, by driving the leading figures overseas, it in fact massively increased the influence of their ideas. Although primarily celebrated for its contribution to architecture – the artists Joseph Albers, Johannes Itten and Paul Klee were all on the teaching staff.
