"The final goal of all creative activity is construction. When he wrote the Bauhaus Manifesto in 1919, architect Walter Gropius - its founder and first director - may not have imagined the extent of the influence of his House of Construction. The Bauhaus has since become a movement that has revolutionized the codes of architecture and design. In only 14 years of existence, the Bauhaus school has brought forth the era of modernism, the matrix of major movements, including the "International Style".
The first perception when listening to the word "Bauhaus" is often that of the coldness and austerity that can be imagined in post-war Weimar. On the contrary, the Bauhaus School was a place of life and experimentation, bringing together talents from all walks of life to provide its atypical teaching: architects and designers (Marcel Breuer, Ludwig Hilberseimer....), painters (Vassilly Kandinsky, Josef Albers, Johannes Itten, Paul Klee), photographers (László Moholy-Nagy), typographers (Herbert Bayer) and polymorphic artists (Oskar Schlemmer).
Passionate about materials and multidisciplinary, the Bauhaus approached the art of metal, glass, wood, textile, photography and even dance through its workshops led by systematic pairs: an artist and a craftsman. For such was its vocation: to reconcile art, craft and industry. In the same way, the objects le grammeare the fruit of industrial craftsmanship, in which the precision of the machine is combined with the look and gesture of man.
For the Bauhaus, art and craftsmanship had to be combined with one aim: to be accessible to the greatest number of people, through a common aesthetic, made of simplicity, woven of stripped elegance, imprinted with functionalism. An approach without frills or ornamentation adopted by le gramme. Convinced that the object only becomes personal through a form contracted to the essential, le grammecombines craftsmanship and technique into a new unity, revealing the material in its simplest and most useful form, to the point of naming each creation solely by its weight.
With its wearable and functional objects designed for men, le grammecontinues to defend this radical heritage, this aesthetic of modernity with clean lines left by the Bauhaus. le grammeworks the precious metal (Gold 750, Silver 925) with simplicity and geometry, streamlining every detail, to offer a new field of emotion to those who share its search for the absolute.
