Stelton was founded in 1960 and the foundations for future success were laid in 1964 when Peter Holmblad, Stelton’s managing director of that time, established a cooperation with the leading Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen. The result, the now famous Cylinda-Line tableware range, was launched in 1967.
Cylinda-Line immediately attracted considerable attention because of its serene and functional design. After Arne Jacobsen’s death in 1971 a cooperation with the young designer Erik Magnussen was established. His first creation for Stelton was the stainless steel vacuum jug with a unique rocker stopper, which was introduced in 1977 - the best-selling product so far in the history of the company.
