Drawing inspiration from the colorful and sculptural Bauhaus costumes of “The Triadic Ballet,” which premiered in Stuttgart in 1922, this Triadic Ballpoint Pen brings optimism and whimsy to your writing duties. The avant-garde costumes for the ballet—composed of cylinder, sphere, cone and spiral shapes—were designed by Oskar Schlemmer, a teacher at the Bauhaus School who also choreographed the ballet. The ballet was presented in numerous cities throughout the 1920s, including Weimar, Frankfurt, Berlin and Paris. Distinguished by its primary colors (red, blue and yellow), and a black spiral on one end, the black-ink Triadic Ballpoint Pen is made of aluminum, can be replenished with standard parrot-style ink refills, and measures 6h x 0.3"diam. Examples of Bauhaus designs are represented in MoMA’s collection.
