Jung Koch Quentell

The name Jung Koch Quentell came to be as they were the last names of the three men, all scientists, who in the Fifties designed the charts for the German Publishing Company Hagemann, which supplied learning aids to German Schools. Their aim was to create universal charts, without text, which would be easy to interpret for teachers in any language. The Scientific rigor and artistic perfection they applied to creating these charts created the international success of Hagemann Charts, both as learning aids and now as interior design treasures.

Important principles of these charts were that the colours were true (up to 10 colours were used per chart) and that the size of the charts was large enough to be seen by the entire classroom.
These designs became an international success and Hagemann sold them worldwide, the vibrant colours on the black background and no text making them easy to use in any language.
Recently they have been discovered by interior design lovers and have proven to be a vast favorite by stylists for creating that immediate dramatic effect in a room.

Otto's is a family run business and was founded in Exeter, Devon in 2013, when we took on our first retail space in Exeters' up and coming independent area around Fore Street. I founded Otto's as a young 22 year old, after leaving my hometown of Coventry and my job in the construction trade, with a modest pot of savings as a start up!

The original shop dated back to the late 1800's where it had many incarnations, such as a butchers and a car showroom, it has always been a great retail space, full of character! We operated both our webstore and shop from here for 3 years before we sadly outgrew the space due to the expansion of our webstore.

We moved into our new warehouse & showroom in May 2016. We instantly fell in love with the industrial aspect of the space which is a complimentary backdrop for our stock. The warehouse provided us with a large retail space, stock room, office, workshop and loading bay and was a huge step forward from our humble origins.

The warehouse dates back to the 1930s, when it served as a Morris car garage, and a telephone exchange during the 1950's & 1960's. It retains all its original features including it's concertina garage doors, exposed pipework and beams.

Otto's is now run by a father & son team, Lewis & David Macskimming. David runs the workshop & restoration while I, Lewis run the website, shipping and logistics. We source stock from all over Europe and ship worldwide, providing well curated and sympathetically restored 20th century antiques.
