This iconic coffee pot was designed by Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen in 1967 and made in Denmark as part of his 'Cylinda Line' for Stelton. It took over ten years from Jacobsen’s initial design in the 1950s to the perfection of the production process due to the precise engineering requirements of sheet steel. Even once this had been mastered, there was a further period perfecting the manual satin polishing process and fine-tuning the spout. The Cylinda Line truly is a masterpiece of both design and engineering.
Cylinda Line items are on display at Modern Art and Design Museums around the world. This was a modern, cutting edge design in its day and led the way for a whole new era of modernist design in homewares. With its clean lines and modernist design this coffee pot has a timeless appeal and would make a wonderful present for any lover of Mid Century Scandinavian design.
