Puiforcat Zermatt Stainless Steel Flatware
French designer Patrick Jouin drew inspiration for this flatware from Zermatt, a luxurious Swiss ski resort surrounded by incredible mountain scenery including the 4478m summit of Matterhorn. The treacherous majesty of the Alpine landscape is mirrored in the bold, sharp lines of the Zermatt fork and dinner knife. Fashioned out of stainless steel, this set of flatware was created by the House of Puiforcat in 2010. It was quickly deemed a classic of modern design by authoritative connoisseurs: the world's first rate museums, from the Centre Pompidou in Paris to the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, have sung its praises.
|Details & Care||Flatware may be machine washed. However, taking certain precautions and remaining attentive to cleaning products used is recommended: – powder detergent is preferable to chlorinated liquids, and should be used sparingly; – prior to each washing, be sure to separate silver cutlery from stainless steel items; – to facilitate the flow of water on the blades, knives should be placed in the silverware basket with the blades facing downward; – remove the cutlery at the end of the cycle or leave the dishwasher door cracked open to avoid condensation spots on the blades; – to prevent scratches on the knives, be sure that they are separated and do not knock together. Nevertheless, it is natural for the silverware's finish to evolve with continued use and washing.|
