The Stelton Story
Danish army soldiers and best friends, Stellan and Carton, started Stelton as a trading company. They approached Danish Stainless and sold quality stainless steel tableware after furniture and sporting shoes proved unprofitable. Peter Holmblad, the managing director, approached his architect stepfather, Arne Jacobsen, about designing for Stelton.
Only after Jacobsen saw Holmblad's humble renderings did Arne Jacobsen consent. Stelton tableware experienced strong popularity at first, but Holmblad had to sell the company in 2004 after economic decline. Michael Ring bought it and re-directed the line to be more inclusive and wide-reaching.
