post number twenty four - arne jacobsen
Here is a post for the hardcore architects, interior and industrial designers - all things designed by the great Arne Jacobsen. These items are definitely timeless - original designs date back to the late 1950s and 1960s. The bulk of the items featured are produced by Stelton from the ‘Cylinda-Line’ collection. I would say around half of my Stelton collection is second-hand due to half of the pieces are no longer in production. The ‘AJ’ cutlery and salad servers at the top left and candleholder in the centre, are made by Georg Jensen. I use the AJ cutlery as my everyday cutlery, which some say is extravagant. I disagree and believe why not enjoy great design everyday and I question why have beautiful things but not actually using them… Does anyone agree?
