Dear readers and lovers of great design,

Today I wish to recall two great names from the industry of design: the first is Gio Ponti, and the second is Sambonet, both Made in Italy.

Gio Ponti (1891-1979) was an influential Italian architect and designer, who made significant contributions to the world of design, including flatware. His designs are known for their modernist approach, blending functionality with elegant, minimalist aesthetics.

One of his most famous flatware design is the FLATWARE cutlery, created for the Italian brand Krupp in 1936. It’s design was marked by modernist clean lines, while its smooth lines were practical and comfortable at use.

In the Sixties, the Sambonet family acquired Krupp brand, and continued the production of Flatware until Nineties, interrupting it for some time, and relaunching the production at the end of 2003 until our days, available in stainless steel, but also in silver-plated finish.
