Wilhelm Wagenfeld was an outstanding German designer, one of the pioneers of industrial design; he studied at the Bauhaus, “a school in Germany that combined crafts and the fine arts, which operated from 1919 to 1933, and was famous for the approach to design that it publicized and taught. In the 1920s, he designs his first commercial product – the well-known table lamp with a hemispherical cap of opal glass (1923-1924), which is still manufactured today and is priced at about $200. Wagenfeld focused mostly on designing products necessary in everyday life. His iconic pepper and salt shaker “Max and Moritz”(1952) could be found on the table of every other German family.
