Connoisseurs appreciate Copenhagen-based industrial design powerhouse Stelton for its marriage of functionality and pure aesthetics. The Danish appreciate Stelton for its storied history. And anyone can appreciate Stelton for its masterfully-crafted products. Stelton is a portmanteau of its two co-founders’ first names: Stellan and Carton. Starting out as a shoe company, and later a furniture maker, Stelton didn’t find mass success until it began marketing stainless steel tableware—a market segment which would become wildly popular in 60’s Denmark. Since then, nearly fifty years later, Stelton has become synonymous with innovation, superior quality and Scandinavian design principles. It’s no wonder why every clever graphic design student wants to brand Stelton while every good industrial designer wants to collaborate with them. And naturally, everyone else just wants to own their stainless steel products.
