For C. Hugo Pott's 100th anniversary, a major retrospective of his work is being presented as number of simultaneous touring exhibitions. One special location is the KaDeWe in Berlin from July 9 until August 7, 2004.

"Hundert eigenwillige Jahre – One Hundred Individualistic Years" – is the slogan for the celebrations of C. Hugo Pott's anniversary. Alongside several simultaneous touring exhibitions, a major retrospective of the cutlery sets and accessories will take place in the anniversary year. There are a total of 43 locations. The largest exhibition will be on display in Berlin's KaDeWe starting July 9, 2004.

For model 16, Carl Pott’s first cutlery set designed in 1935, he received the Diplom d'Honeur at the World Exposition in Paris in 1937. It cleared the way for the international breakthrough of C. Hugo Pott. All cutlery models and most of the accessories are still being sold to this day and have always represented traditional handicraft. At the occasion of the anniversary, limited editions are being released that are also presented in the touring exhibitions. Despite the limited editions and outstanding design, the pieces are not (only) made for the showcase: the cutlery sets, salt spoons and seving spoons can be used for many purposes.

 

C. Hugo Pott is known for not just designing cutlery sets but "tools with a soul". Perfected forms and a no-frills straightforwardness are the trademarks of the designer. Designing the useful in a perfected way has always been the objective of the company, which was founded in 1904 and became a globally renowned stainless steel manufacturer early on.
