Letter Message Board

Aulenti Flatware

You may recognize this flatware, as its minimalist vibe harks back to 1970. 1970? Wait, what? Wasn’t that before some of us were born? Yeah, maybe, but let’s appreciate how certain timeless designs remain relevant no matter the decade. Fun fact: Gae Aulenti was one of Italy’s most prolific architects, known for several large-scale museum projects, including the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, the Contemporary Art Gallery at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, and the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco.
