Product Description

Arne Jacobsen Flatware

A minimalist classic featured in the Museum’s collection, this flatware was designed by Arne Jacobsen and represents the essence of the Danish modern style. It has been in continuous production since it was introduced in 1957. Used as the flatware for the crew in Stanley Kubrick's film, 2001: A Space Odyssey, this flatware is sleek with the subtlest of details. The five-piece place setting includes a dinner fork and knife, soup spoon, salad fork, and teaspoon. Made of matte-finish 18/8 stainless steel. Manufactured by Georg Jensen.

Mid-Century Design

Following World War II, a number of factors combined to foster a new direction in home products and furniture. New materials, such as molded plywood and plastic, and advances in mass production techniques opened a world of design options. Through the efforts of companies like Herman Miller, their longtime design director George Nelson, and the influential team of Charles and Ray Eames, these new designs could be produced for a broad market. A new vocabulary of ergonomic form, versatile function, and synthetic material emerged—and some of the most beloved furniture of the century was created.
