David Mellor London Stainless Steel collection shows his characteristic mastery of form. This superb new cutlery is beautifully sculpted, its subtleties accentuated by the silky matte finish and distinctive offset maker’s mark. The weight in the hand is precisely judged but still wonderfully elegant as well as good to hold. A modern cutlery design of radical simplicity.
Designed in 2004, London Stainless Steel appeals to those who appreciate pure, understated, contemporary design.
"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."
—David Mellor as told to John Sorrell, Creative Island: Inspired Design from Great Britain (Te Neues Publishing Company, 2002)
