With his design for the Modell 29 Hans Schwippert broke with all traditional shaping and assembly models of cutlery. Each part has multiple usages.
The fork is not a table fork, steak fork, meat-, sausage-, and serving-fork in one.
The knives are not only table knives, they are also perfectly suitable as steak knives and pizza knives; but also as cheese knives, because with that point it is easy to prick and transport cheese pieces.
The spoon is a table spoon, sauce spoon and serving spoon in one and creates salad servers together with the spoon-fork. And together with the prick fork as serving cutlery.
The spoon-fork pricks and shovels stew courts, noodles and pan courts as well as sauces and vegetables.
The small spoon does not only serve as coffee spoon with its small teeth, but also as cake fork, ice spoon, kiwi and fruits spoon and as sugar shovel.
If one keeps in mind that industrial design – as well as the total modern industrial society – is embossed by specialisations, then this synthesis from the Schwippert house with the Model 29 appears like a concrete utopia. It contains the hope of less devices, more space and less waste.
