Arne Jacobsen / Paul Smith

When the starting point for a new design project is a genuine classic that can withstand any challenge, there is considerable room for creative license. That is why Stelton could give Paul Smith free reins with "the crown jewels", Arne Jacobsen?s iconic Cylinda-Line coffee and teapots, and the more recent coffee press.

The results are as simple as they are spectacular. Showing deep respect for the ingenious design principles of the original products, Paul Smith has concentrated his colourful imagination on Cylinda-Line handles, lending a modern, optimistic look to Jacobsen's classics. The tableware takes on new life, and extends its appeal to a new audience which will now become aware of some of the world's most functional and stylish utensils. Those already familiar with Stelton design will also be drawn to Cylinda-Line?s new take on colours.
