Profile Servers

Don’t these salad servers look like they should be on the set of a futuristic movie? The ridged profile of extruded aluminum nests neatly in a bowl, drawer, or hook. You could even go super edgy and serve single portions on on the servers, as a sort of skinny dish (image below).

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.

Dearborn Glassware

What says ‘grown-up glassware’ more than the $70 per piece price tag of the Dearborn Glassware? Maybe the intricate, fluted Borosilicate glass, or the knowledge that each piece was expertly created by master glassblowers in the Czech Republic. Borosilicate glass, if you didn’t know, gives thermal resistance, which translates into a durability appropriate for daily use- it’s safe to use in ovens, microwaves, and dishwashers- and that gives us all a little more understanding to the collection’s value (and, ultimately, the aforementioned price tag). Now on sale.
