We are surrounded by good design even in our everyday lives: The two-volume publication C. Hugo Pott – Bestecke und Tafelgeräte, edited by Barbara Grotkamp-Schepers, fittingly presents to us the perfect blend of beauty and functionality that accompanies us in our everyday lives.
Over 100 years of design history
The Pott company has been producing top-quality blades and cutlery since 1904. It was always the company’s aim to develop innovations and to create products that win over customers not only with their high quality standards but also with their sense of aesthetics. Over the years, this endeavour resulted in a comprehensive catalogue full of design and functionality. Since 2005 the company’s archives have been accessible to the public in the Deutsches Klingenmuseum, giving exciting insights into the design history of the 20th century.
Inspiring images and informative texts
In two volumes featuring rich images, C. Hugo Pott – Bestecke und Tafelgeräte guides the reader through the inventory catalogue of the Pott archives, and simultaneously through the history of design. In addition to inspiring photographs, the book also features interesting texts that explain the context, the design currents and much more. The result is a fascinating work that you are unlikely to want to put down!
Interesting reading and a high-quality gift
In an inspiring and educational way, C. Hugo Pott – Bestecke und Tafelgeräte introduces the reader to the magic of everyday objects and shows how good design can enrich our day-to-day lives. This makes the book an exciting read not only for design professionals, students of design or lovers of design history, but also for anyone who derives pleasure from the beauty and aesthetics of well-executed design. The book’s unusual design with the sparkling silver cover and the sturdy slipcase also makes the publication ideal as a stylish gift for many occasions.
