This April, Paul Smith is delighted to launch a new collection of tableware to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Stelton. Paul Smith has re-worked designs from the Stelton Archives and the Arne Jacobsen’s Cylinda collection giving them a refreshing and contemporary update.
Paul Smith for STELTON
Fashion designer Paul Smith has reworked a coffee pot by late Danish designer Arne Jacobsen to mark the 50th anniversary of Danish brand Stelton.
PAUL SMITH FOR STELTON 50th ANNIVERSARY TABLEWARE COLLECTION
Danish designer Arne Jacobsen, best known for designing ‘The Egg’ and ‘Number 7’ chairs, is an exemplar of the ‘Danish Modern’ style. Paul Smith, the pre-eminent British designer, 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.
Stelton changed hands in 2004. Since then many new designers have been invited to create innovative products that meet contemporary consumer needs. While the cylindrical form can be seen in many of the new products, the current collection also includes a number of other, softer shapes.
