Stationary is an adjective that means something is not moving, not intended to be moved, or not to be changed. It is easily mistaken for the word ‘Stationery’ which is a noun representing things such as erasers and pencils and other equipment used for writing letters, academic literature, and different forms of art like drawing and painting. The idea of BELOWGROUND is based on a stationary concept. It is an everlasting venue for fashion and culture lovers to come together and set their eyes on a new piece of clothing or creative product each time they visit. Image source: Pen Store

It is sometimes called a low-cut filter or bass-cut filter in the context of audio engineering.
