A century in the light of Bauhaus

Wilhelm Wagenfeld's lamp is characterised by its simple elegance and geometric precision. It is a manifestation of the Bauhaus principle that good design endures over time. It emphasises functionality and aesthetic reduction.

From Bauhaus to modernity

An ode to timelessness

The Bauhaus lamp, created a century ago by the product designer and pioneer of industrial design, Wilhelm Wagenfeld, is shining in new splendour on the occasion of a remarkable anniversary. TECNOLUMEN honours this epochal masterpiece with a special edition that pays homage not only to the timeless beauty of the lamp itself, but also to its creator, Wilhelm Wagenfeld, whose original signature adorns each lamp in this anniversary edition. An accompanying book, written and published exclusively for the occasion by Julia Bulk, the renowned director of the Wilhelm Wagenfeld Foundation, entitled 'Harmonious, Timeless, Round: The Modern Sphere', explores the design principles of this design icon and the philosophical roots that shaped it.
A century of Bauhaus light

A celebration of timeless design with the Wagenfeld Lamp

As a young student at the Bauhaus, that revolutionary educational establishment for modern design founded by Walter Gropius in 1919, Wilhelm Wagenfeld accomplished a remarkable creation. In 1924, shortly after beginning his apprenticeship at this avant-garde institution for design and art, he designed the lamp that is today celebrated as an icon of modern design. The Bauhaus, with its progressive and integrative vision, aimed to establish a seamless connection between art and craft, a synthesis intended to find its practical expression in the design of the modern human's living environment. This ambitious objective sought to make design and everyday objects not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional and accessible to everyone.

This vision of the Bauhaus, to merge art and everyday life and to adapt design to the dynamic requirements of changing modern life, finds an exemplary manifestation in the Wagenfeld lamp. Its design, characterized by clear form and thoughtful functionality, impressively demonstrates the Bauhaus's pursuit of a harmonious union of form and function. The lamp, with its simple elegance and geometric clarity, embodies the principles of the Bauhaus: A design that is distinguished by timeless beauty yet meets the practical needs of everyday life.

100 Years of the Bauhaus Lamp

The magic of frozen light

The Wagenfeld lamp is therefore not only a manifestation of the visionary design philosophy of the Bauhaus, but also of Wagenfeld's personal genius and his ability to translate the essential teachings of his mentors into a physical form that has lost none of its relevance and aesthetic value. Through its reduced form, deliberate choice of high quality materials and focus on the essential, the lamp speaks a universal design language that has endured across generations and serves as a shining example of the Bauhaus legacy in the modern design world.

Wilhelm Wagenfeld's Timeless Legacy in 'The Modern Sphere'

The anniversary edition, together with Julia Bulk's book, offers a unique perspective on the legacy of the Bauhaus and Wilhelm Wagenfeld's immense contribution to this defining cultural movement. "Harmonious, Timeless, Round: The Modern Sphere casts new light on the design principles of the Bauhaus and shows how these principles are embodied in the Wagenfeld lamp - an object that not only illuminates a space, but also embodies the concepts of harmony and timeless modernity.
