Norman Foster Collection for Stelton
I always find the launch of new collections exciting, and being a Londoner this one particularly caught my eye. Whether you are interested in architecture or not, the chances are, if you ask a someone who lives in London who Norman Foster is they will know that he’s the man behind The Gherkin and The Great Court at the British Museum. So when Stelton announced that in June they will be launching a collection in collaboration with the renowned British Architect, it caught my attention very quickly.
Just like his buildings, the range combines elegant simplicity and sculptural form with soft geometry. The collection ranges from porcelain jugs, glass coffee cups to polished steel pitchers and the with the effortless design, it’s not hard to see how the collaboration with Stelton makes sense. What connects the different materials into a single and striking collection is as Foster describes the ‘power of curves’ - as can be seen in his architecture. The silhouettes of the collection feel quite feminine, and completed understated making them suitable for multiple functions whether that be a dinner party or a simple Sunday brunch spread.
The steel pitcher is definitely going on my wishlist!
