Table cutlery by Carl Pott
Paul Voss, a designer of metal utensils, was head of the arts and crafts department of the Solingen technical school for metal design after working in the USA for several years. This led to an acquaintance with Carl Pott, who was his student. Paul Voss introduced Carl Pott to the goals and ideas of the Bauhaus and the Werkbund.
Model 20 was a revolution at the time of its market launch (1951). It represented a new generation of cutlery: a short blade, a short fork and a small oval spoon shape. Model 20 is an evergreen today. At the beginning of the 70s, it was included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art.
