From The Paul Smith website: "Paul Smith is delighted to launch a new collection of tableware to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Stelton. Paul Smith re-worked designs from the Stelton Archives and the Arne Jacobsen’s Cylinda collection giving them a refreshing and contemporary update.
Danish designer Arne Jacobsen, best known for designing ‘The Egg’ and ‘Number 7’ chairs, is an exemplar of the 'Danish Modern' style. Paul Smith has long admired Jacobsen’s work and so was delighted to be asked to re-invent the now iconic Cylinda collection. The collection respects the integrity of the original design with tea and coffee pots in hand polished stainless-steel while incorporating highlights of colour on the handles indicative of Paul Smith’s innate sense of colour.
The Arne Jacobsen Cocktail set has also been thoughtfully re-worked – a cocktail mixer, jug, ice-bucket, mixer spoon, tray and coasters have been re-coloured in black. Reflecting the character of Paul and his designs, each piece has a different engraved quote, “take pleasure seriously”, or “start something new”, conveying Paul’s genuine sense of humour. Available now from selected Paul Smith shops.
