The Eva Solo Story
2013 marks the 100th anniversary of Eva Solo, a Danish designer and producer of kitchen accessories and household utensils. Founded in 1913 by Kai Rhode Fog in Malov, Denmark (near Copenhagen), Eva Solo found its niche as a maker of high-quality modern kitchen implements with the release of its combo flour shaker/citrus squeezer in 1949, and a bread/meat slicer in 1952. Hundreds of products have followed in the decades since. Today, the Eva Solo collection offers an extensive range of household tools in five categories: cooking, serving, living, bath and outdoor.
Why We Love Eva Solo
The best Danish design is clean, simple and a pleasure to use. Such tenets are exemplified to perfection by the products created by Eva Solo. The beautiful, thoughtful design elevates even the most common, everyday object into a work of art. While the forms themselves are aesthetically pleasing in their graceful minimalism, you only get the full effect of Eva Solo products by using them. The quality of the materials and construction and the sense of balance of each piece make ordinarily mundane tasks like sweeping or taking out the garbage easier and even enjoyable.
A Fun Fact About Eva Solo
The company trademarked its current name, Eva Solo, in 1950, named after the daughter of the managing director.

But the lid surprises with its curved lip, which allows it to be opened in any direction and stay in place hooked to the edge of the bin. The Eva Solo Table Grill allows you to barbecue anywhere, with a portable crisp white porcelain bowl fitted with a stainless steel insert and grill. The table surface is protected from the heat by a wood trivet.
