Incorruptible, but not always and everywhere popular: The time clock enables the exact recording of the working time.

Exhibit of the Month: Desk model of a Gropius Adler, around 1932

Photo: An eagle is mounted on a rectangular base plate. The outstretched wings tapering out to a point underscore the minimalist nature of the design’s basic shape. The base plate and the eagle are nickel-plated.© SDTB / Photo: C. Kirchner

Walter Gropius: Even a 100 years after the founding the Bauhaus art school in Weimar, his form elements still play a significant role in modern design.
