Company history

For many decades, the craft of the company Otto Hutt was in the hands of the Hutt family – first founded by Karl Hutt in 1920, then successfully run by his son Otto, whose name the brand still carries today. The company founder was an enthusiastic follower of the Bauhaus movement and felt highly inspired by the design language of this new school of design. As a resident of Pforzheim – the “golden city”, which had earned its first-class reputation around the world through centuries of jewelry, watch, and consumer good production – he transferred the idea of the Bauhaus style to new products and founded a company for pocket consumer goods and noble writing devices made of silver. Entirely in line with his Bauhaus contemporaries, Karl Hutt developed writing devices that distinguished themselves through the best processing and perfect functionality. The design was also inspired by the straightforward, clear, and functional Bauhaus style. In the 1960’s, he handed over the reins to his son Otto Hutt, who continued to expand the company and successfully asserted himself on the national and international market. Later, the Robert E. Huber GmbH succeeded Otto Hutt and relaunched the company’s own brand. CEO Marco Frei and Technical Director Nicole Klingel carefully revised the product portfolio and successfully continued to develop the manufacturing processes. Today, the company’s outstanding competence in terms of manufacturing competence and technical precision forms the foundation of the excellent worldwide reputation of the products by Otto Hutt. At the beginning of 2017, the company embarked on a path towards a market-strategy relaunch that will culminate at Paperworld 2018.
