Arne Jacobsen cutlery

By Georg Jensen


  • Description

    This minimalist cutlery was originally designed for SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. It sits well in the hand and allows free, unforced movements. It is easy to see why this was called 'the cutlery with no frills', and even in the new millenium its appearance is strikingly modern and inovative.

  • Technical Info

    Georg Jensen stainless steel cutlery are made of the best quality steel available: stainless 18/8 (DIN 1.4301).

    Wash and dry the cutlery shortly after use. Avoid leaving the cutlery unwashed or leaving to soak for long periods as this may result in spotting.

    When using a dishwasher, rinse the cutlery before placing it in the machine. Do not wask the cutlery with products made from iron as they may give odd rust. Wash the cutlery dry soon after the dishwasher has finished.

  • Designer
    Arne Jacobsen

    Trained as an architect in Copenhagen, Jacobsen took up the profession already in the 1920s. His most famous buildings include Arhus Town Hall in Denmark, the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen and St Catherine's College in Oxford England. His experiments into plywood resulted in the Ant chair in 1952 and the 3107 in 1955 (also known as the Seven chair), both manufactured by Fritz Hansen.

    The work on the SAS Royal Hotel resulted in some of his most outstanding designs, including the Egg and Swan chairs, a stainless steel cutlery set now made by silver manufacturer Georg Jensen and a series of lamps, manufactured by Louis Poulsen. In 1967 he designed a series of stainless steel tableware for Stelton. A perfectionist and a master of detail, Jacobsen worked right up to his death in 1971. In central London, his Royal Danish Embassy on Sloane Street was completed only in 1977.
