About the DesignerCarl Pott
Carl Pott was in close contact with other significant designers of functional objects. He ran his designs by them, and at the same time, challenged them to develop their own flatware patterns. His credo was, "I consider it to be my duties to produce not only from the fiscal point of view, but as manufacturer I also have cultural responsibilities." This reasoning led him to persuade Hermann Gretsch, Wilhelm Wagenfeld, Josef Hoffmann, Elisabeth Treskow, Hans Schwippert, Paul Voss and Alexander Schaffner to design flatware for the POTT production program.
One of the last designs by Carl Pott, continues to be one of the most successful in the Pott flatware program. At the time of its introduction, in 1975, the five-tined fork was a total innovation. Extending the width of the fork allowed for an easier scooping of sauces and vegetables, such as peas. The fine grooves at the end of the handles give this massive flatware a special allure.
Designed by: Carl Pott, 1975
Bold and masculine is the feel of this flatware design, rooted on a stern geometric foundation. Originally designed by Carl Pott at the request of the people of Cologne who gifted it as the official city cutlery. Like no other Pott flatware, it is designed in formal Bauhaus tradition. Fitting its strong sense of presence, the fork has five tins. Particularly striking is the sweep of the broad, heavy handles.
