Celebrating the 125th anniversary of her birth:
Olly Wendt –
A Portrait


One name is inextricably linked with Wendt & Kühn: Olly Wendt (née Sommer). To mark her 125th birthday in 2021 we have produced a book in a limited edition of 1,920 copies. The number of copies corresponds to the year in which this talented designer started working at the Grünhainichen manufactory, five years after the foundation of Wendt & Kühn.

Through a series of individual episodes emerges an authentic portrait of this exceptional personality. Previously unpublished letters, notes, poems and photos bring to life her early years spent in Riga, the city of her birth, as well as her time as a student in Dresden. And as she herself wrote, Wendt & Kühn in Grünhainichen ultimately became her destiny. Embark on a fascinating journey into the past of this remarkable designer whose ideas provide orientation for the development of our manufactory both now and for the future.
