The Cylinda-line for Stelton

Cylinda-line is always an active choice, synonymous with refinement and timelessness.

October 2017
One of Arne Jacobsen’s most iconic tableware designs, the Cylinda-line, made in stainless steel for Stelton, is celebrating 50 years of iconic presence, enhanced with a 50th Anniversary Limited Edition. The Cylinda-line was launched in 1967 after three intensive years spent developing products along with new methods of producing in stainless steel. Since then, the award-winning cocktail and tableware series (ID prize 1967 by the Danish Society of Industrial Design and the International Design Award, 1968) has become the essence of Stelton’s design DNA. The colouring of the new collection is inspired by Arne Jacobsen’s earlier work. As Michael Ring says: “Cylinda-line has never been a mainstream product. The clear-cut silhouette has always been controversial. Form and function have the same value, and Cylinda-line is always an active choice, synonymous with refinement and timelessness. However, if you like the design but perhaps do not fancy the coolness of the steel, Stelton’s anniversary series comes in an enamel colour palette inspired by Arne Jacobsen’s passion for colour in his paintings, textiles, and carpets. I believe the anniversary products will appeal to a new audience who appreciate individually selected products, ‘sampled’ with interior design from different decades. We are fully aware that Arne Jacobsen’s iconic design has helped us spread all over the world and has attracted eminent international designers to work for Stelton.”
Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) is one of the most acknowledged Danish architects and designers worldwide. With an astounding curiosity, originality and creativity Arne Jacobsen played an important role in modernism and the Danish design history and present-day designers are still highly influenced by his works.

DAMN°64 Food presents products that are creating waves in the kitchen. Says Productivity editor Patrizia Coggiola about the Sweet Modernist trend:

"Seducing the eye with the vital force of accurate contours, shaping the body of the object like a precious grand centrepiece to attract the attention and polarise our movements... Whether it is the eclectic morphism recalling the forms of exotic locations or the shivering glow of the polished metallic surfaces, the wittiness of the design is enrapturing."
