Stelton AJ Cylinda Line Coffee Pot Arne Jacobsen Design
Stelton AJ Cylinda Line Coffee Pot Arne Jacobsen Danish.
Designed by Danish architect Arne Jacobsen in 1967 as part of his Cylinda Line range.
Made in Denmark by Stelton.
Satin polished stainless steel with black Bakelite handle.
Holds 1.5 litres. 20cm high and 23cm wide from spout to handle.
Fair vintage condition. Has scuffing to the base, and the handle is a bit faded and slightly misshapen. All of which are shown in the photos and factored into the price. Despite these matters it is still fully functioning and completely usable.
The iconic AJ Cylinda Line coffee pot was designed by Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen in 1967.
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, minimalist lines this teapot has a timeless appeal.
