When the Porcelain dinnerware Whitepot came to light in 1972, it was originally launched as catering service for the finer restaurants. But with its clear clean lines and multifunctionality, it resonated with the growing generation of design-conscious consumers. It was snow-white, without decorations and space saving because the components were stackable.
Grethe was very systematic in her design methods and used her knowledge of people’s eating habits and their place limitations at home to manufacture frames that were both beautiful but also appropriate for the people who would use them in everyday life.
“Its name became “Whitepot”- and since I can not help but regard it as a female creature, I wish to add: naked, she was born and naked she was sent into the world as it befits in Denmark today … As mother of Whitepot, I wish that she will get easily over the first teething and otherwise behave as well as her sister Blue Line “. Grethe Meyer, 1971
Grethe was awarded the Nordic Prize for Design & Crafts for Whitepot in 1973.
Whitepot was relaunched at Royal Copenhagen from 2001-2011.
And is manufactured and marketed today by Coop Denmark.
