How Stelton became a Legend
Stelton was founded in 1960 with the purpose of selling stainless steel hollowware like platters, salad bowls etc. A design policy was formulated in 1964 when the then administrative director Peter Holmblad established a cooperation with the leading Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen. The basic idea was to create a true line of tableware where correlation of design between the individual items would always ensure harmonious table settings. The result was the now famous Cylinda-Line which was launched in 1967 and immediately attracted considerable attention for its serene and functionalist design. The company rapidly grew due to the success of Cylinda-Line in Denmark and on export markets.
After Arne Jacobsen's death in 1971, a cooperation with the young designer Erik Magnussen, well-known for his work for Danish porcelain manufacturer Bing & Grøndahl, was established. His first creation for Stelton was the stainless steel vacuum jug with the unique rocker stopper, which was introduced in 1977 - the best-selling article so far in the history of the company.
Since then Erik Magnussen and Stelton have developed an extensive range of table top items in stainless steel and ABS plastics, i.e. salad bowls, teapots, serving trays, serving utensils and cutlery.
Today, Stelton offers five different design lines: Classic, i:cons, Explore, 21st and Norstaal. These Stelton lines feature products from more than 20 top-designers and thereby, once again, represent Stelton as one of the most innovative and front-running companies of its kind.
