Working in a Kaleidoscope
Lever handle model FSB 1051 has come to epitomise FSB. It was dubbed the "Schneider Handle" (the "S" in FSB) virtually from the moment it came into being in the mid 1950s. We can only surmise as to why this model be - came Johannes Potente's supreme creat
ion and a market leader in the 1960s. Maybe it's all down to the harmony it exudes and its moulded-tothe- hand credentials. FSB 1051 is one of four models designed by Johannes Potente that, in the summer of 1998, were added to the permanent collection at
the MoMA in New York.
