Magnusen Flatware

I can’t quite figure out what is so Nordic about these, but it just looks like a guy named Magnussen designed them. Erik Magnussen, to be exact. Maybe it’s the subtle curves and angles. Anyway, they’re stunning.

simple flatware

About a year ago I bought some “modern” flatware. It looked great at first but then after a while it started to get rusty. It’s because it was not stainless steel. I learned my lesson. This flatware is mirror-finished 18/8 stainless steel. Dishwasher safe.

Flatware set : Four five-piece settings of salad fork, dinner fork, knife, soupspoon and teaspoon. 6.5″–9″l.

Serving set : 9″l fork and 8.5″l spoon.

Arne Jacobsen Flatware

Do you want a piece of history? How about a piece of the future?

“A minimalist classic, this flatware represents the essence of the Danish modern style and has been in continuous production since it was first designed. Used as the flatware of the crew in Stanley Kubrick’s film, “2001, A Space Odyssey,” the futuristic-looking set is sleek, with the handles only slightly differentiated, and the knife blade indicated by only a subtle indentation. The five-piece place setting is made of matte-finish 18/8 stainless steel by Georg Jensen.”
