Stelton Releases New Range of Tableware Designed by Norman Foster
From wine carafe and coffee cups to wine goblets and bowls as well as a tray, the new contemporary range of tableware collection by British architect Norman Foster and Danish design brand Stelton blend sculptural form and soft geometry to create exceptional tableware.
Whether it is mass manufactured product or a handcrafted object, Norman Foster described the common denominator as the care and love that goes into it at every stage, creating a product that is going to be part of everyday lives.
Founded in the 1960s in Denmark by Niels Stellan Høm and Carton Madelaire, Stelton is known for producing stainless steel tableware. The innovative design house, Stelton, used the very best of materials to bring unique characteristics to its latest range of tableware.
Each tableware by Foster + Partners is synonymous with quality, workmanship and textures. Speaking of the new range, Norman Foster interprets in his own words on the sculptural and geometric designs, he said: “There’s a wonderful ambiguity in the power of a curve, the power of a line, whether it is defining an individual, a building, a bridge, a skyline, or a vessel. They are all part of the same family, in a way.”
While it has always been Stelton’s tradition to team up with leading designers to produce from a wide range of tableware to lifestyle accessories, with that in mind, the design house offers a new interpretation of luxury tableware set to complement the modern-day table settings and purposes.
“They all comes down to the elements that we touch, the interface of our daily lives. The translation of a design idea through prototyping and production, and the quality of those finishes is vital,” he added.
A major name on the international architecture scene, previous projects from Norman Foster include London’s “Gherkin” – officially named 30 St Mary Axe – and Millennium Bridge. He won the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize in 1999.
