Everyday Carry: Bauhaus

Jan 9, 2019

Category: Everyday Carry

If we were to boil down the Bauhaus design movement to a single tenet, it would be one that Dieter Rams, the godfather of the movement himself, uttered. “Less, but better,” describes the minimalist styling perfectly — both in meaning and in regards to the phrase’s grammatical structure. You see, Bauhaus is unlike other schools of design in that it does not separate purpose and form. Rather, those two things are intrinsic to design itself. If you want to craft a pen, you should not embellish it. Instead, build one with only the necessary parts and the form will emerge to match it. As lovers of minimalism, especially when it comes to everyday carry, this movement is one we hold near and dear. And we’ve drawn inspiration for this week’s pocket dump directly from it.

Craighill Desk Knive

Perfect for detailed cutting tasks, as well as opening up boxes whenever you get a delivery, Craighill’s Desk Knife is the perfect meshing of good design and utility. Made from solid stainless steel here in the USA, this beautiful tool is one you’ll want to keep on hand and out on display even when you’re not using it.

Purchase: $60

Discommon Goods Thermoform Card Wallet 2.0

Combining iconic leather with space-age laminating and thermoforming techniques, Discommon Goods’ Thermoform Card Wallet 2.0 is a beautiful and unique cash and card carrier with a clean aesthetic, RFID blocking tech, and room for up to eight cards and cash.

Purchase: $110

Inventery Modular Pocket Fountain Pen

An essential design tool, the pen comes in many forms. And while some artists, doodlers, and scribes are content to carry around a case full of utensils, those with more minimalist everyday carry will be drawn to the Inventery Modular Pocket Fountain Pen. Equipped with an interchangeable carry system, swappable heads (including a stylus for touchscreens), and refillable ink cartridges, this EDC pen is a tough one to beat.

Purchase: $135

Braun Gents AW 10 EVO Classic Watch

An iconic timepiece from the mind of the godfather of the Bauhaus movement himself, Dieter Rams, Braun’s Gents AW 10 EVO Classic Watch has just been revived in all its original glory. Boasting a Swiss movement, stainless steel case, 3 ATM water resistance, and a leather band — this is a stylish timekeeper every design lover should own.
