Join the Bauhaus movement with this limited-edition Leica

The Bauhaus celebrates its centenary this year and to mark the occasion, Leica has revealed a special edition of its Leica CL compact system honouring the influential German school of art and design…

Timeless design 

It’s difficult to underestimate how significantly the Bauhaus movement influenced the realms of modern art, design, and architecture, even after the German school closed in 1933 after 14 years of operation. To mark the 100 years since Walter Gropius founded the Bauhaus in Weimar, Leica has built the Leica CL 100 Jahre Bauhaus, a special edition of its versatile compact system, limited to just 150 pieces. Internally, the camera is identical to the standard Leica CL, while externally, there are a number of subtle aesthetic changes, most notably the Bauhaus logo embossed on the leather front and the Leica logo finished in black rather than the usual red. Each of the 150 individually numbered pieces will cost 3,750 USD and be delivered with a bespoke carrying strap also embossed with the Bauhaus logo.
