Puiforcat Zermatt Dinner Fork, Stainless Steel
Inspired by the Zermatt, a lavish Swiss ski resort surrounded by breathtaking mountains, French designer Patrick Jouin conceived the Zermatt Dinner Fork after gazing at the 4478m summit of the Matterhorn. The ruthless majesty of the Alpine’s jagged peaks is reflected in the strong, sharp lines of this fork. Fashioned in stainless steel, this collection displays the distinctive design of the Art Deco Modernists. The world's top museums, from the Centre Pompidou in Paris to the New York Museum of Arts and Design, 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.|
