David Mellor Design Minimal Stainless Steel cutlery is a master metalworker’s design for modern living. Designed in 2002, its aesthetic purity has made it a firm favorite with designers, architects and design enthusiasts.
The five-piece minimalist set consists of an all-purpose knife and fork and three versatile and beautiful spoons. The taper ground steel knife is especially innovative in its one-piece flowing form. A larger serving/salad spoon is also available.
The sculptural shaping and the weight of the satin polished metal give this cutlery a very sophisticated and luxurious feel.
Satin finish. Knife blades are made from high carbon stainless steel for a superior cutting edge.
"In almost fifty years of cutlery design (yes, Pride was first produced in 1953) I have been hoping one day to arrive at the absolute minimal set made to the finest possible standards — a sort of minimal de luxe. I took as the starting point the ultimate flat knife which I considered to be functionally viable. The flat form was then developed in the fork and three spoons, designed ergonomically to cover all requirements; a capacious soup/serving spoon, middle-size dessert spoon and smaller tea/coffee spoon."
