It’s the start of a new year… so we’re starting a new alphabet blog series.
We picked up this fabulous stainless steel tea set over the holiday period – so ‘A’ just had to be for ‘Arne’… Arne Jacobsen that is.
He’s one of the great designers of the 20th century – and is the man responsible for designing this set.
It was manufactured by Stelton of Denmark in the 1960s. The various pieces are unused in their boxes… and retain their original labels to the underside.
The Cylinda-line brochures (of which the set is part) were inside the pots.
The range comprises a variety of tablewares including tea & coffee sets, salt & pepper pots, toast racks, sauce boats, serving dishes, coasters, cocktail mixers, ice buckets etc.
In fact, we sold the Cylinda-line ice bucket on the website last year.
The collection is beautifully made, very functional and looks fantastic too!
It was awarded the id Prize in 1967 by the Danish Society of Industrial Design and the International Design Award 1968 by the American Institute of Interior Designers.
A really great find to start the new year!
