The Bau Pen Stand – Trends Excellence Award

Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful~ Walter Gropius

With the sole purpose of creating complete works of art that combined fine art, craftsmanship, and technology, architect Walter Gropius founded The Bauhaus movement, which was a renowned art and design school that operated in Germany from 1919 to 1933. Their guiding principle was that “design is neither an intellectual nor a material affair, but simply an integral part of the stuff of life, necessary for everyone in a civilized society”. Be it the remarkably artistic architectural design of the school campus, or the tiniest of details like door handles and lights, everything echoed their modernist design mindset. Following in the footsteps of the Bauhaus Movement, at Studio Trataka, we envision a World where functional objects are also visually enthralling, blending fine art with practical design. One such captivating composition is our beautifully crafted Bau Pen Stand, a tasteful addition to your desk or workspace.

A Glimpse Inside the Persisting Bauhaus Movement

A legacy more than 100 years in the making, The Bauhaus movement, with its emphasis on clean lines, geometric forms, and a minimalistic aesthetic, sought to redefine the relationship between art, craft, and technology. Influenced by the spirit of modernity, the Bauhaus Movement aspired to and was successful in creating a harmonious fusion of beauty and utility in architectural designs, rejecting ornamentation in favour of simple yet elegant forms.
