It’s been a century since Walter Gropius founded the art and design school Bauhaus Staatliches. The world has never been the same since.
Radiating outward from the Bauhaus Staatliches, the once avant garde movement known as Bauhaus has wormed its way into the very fiber of our global society, imbuing the art that we admire, the buildings that we live in, and the products that we use with a carefully crafted, highly geometrical, and essentially minimalist aesthetic. But this doesn’t mean that the Bauhaus style cannot also be a whole lot of fun.
Case in point: the new Swatch Bau Swatch Collection. Taking the characteristic Bauhaus style and placing it right on your wrist, this line celebrates the centennial anniversary of the Bauhaus movement with 25 distinctive and imaginative wristwatch models. Each features quartz movement, 34mm to 42mm plastic cases, and sleek silicone straps. For more fun, customers can visit the online Swatch lab to play with existing Bau Swatch components and create their own customized designs.
