Product Description

Dry Line Five-Piece Place Setting

Achille Castiglioni's Dry Line cutlery has been described as "the reinterpretation of classic Italian tableware in a contemporary key." It has a straightforward shape and is perfectly balanced. Each piece begins as a steel bar, part of which is left as a comfortable handle after the blade, spoon, or prongs are formed. Made by Alessi of matte-finish 18/10 stainless steel. Five-piece place setting includes a dinner fork and knife, soup spoon, salad fork, and teaspoon. Dishwasher-safe, but hand-washing is recommended.

About the Designer

Achille Castiglioni

The legendary Italian architect and industrial designer Achille Castiglioni (1918-2002) is renowned worldwide as a teacher and pioneer of twentieth-century design. Best known for his furniture, lighting, and exhibition work, he created finely styled, expressive, highly imaginative designs for items as diverse as vacuum cleaners and bathroom fixtures. In collaboration with his brother Pier Giacomo until 1968, he used experimental and traditional forms, and new technology to create objects in diverse materials. MoMA celebrates the legacy of this great master and inspiration.
