Paul Smith launches 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. 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.
The collection is completed with Paul Smith Dot, a collection of stainless steel bowls each finished with a highlight of colour inside. Available in a whole host of colors, customers can choose from subtle and muted shades right through to a vibrant, carnival of yellows, blues, greens, pinks and more. The Paul Smith for Stelton collection will be available at Paul Smith shops and online through Paulsmith.co.uk from May 2010.
