The iconic AJ Cylinda Line teapot 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. It would make a wonderful present for any design-conscious person.
Note that we have attempted to show and state the condition as accurately as possible but this is a pre-loved, vintage item and some minor signs of age and/or use are to be expected. There may also be slight variations in the colours shown due to lighting, the camera lens and the device the image is viewed through.
