The storage containers designed by Theodor Bogler for the kitchen of the prototype Haus am Horn by Georg Muche were the first reference objects of the ceramics workshop. At the instigation of Walter Gropius, this project was realised in cooperation with the stoneware companies of Hermann Harkort in Velten-Vordamm near Berlin in order to develop prototypes for serial production.
