Puiforcat Zermatt Teaspoon, Stainless Steel
The Zermatt teaspoon from Puiforcat is the creation of French designer Patrick Jouin. Made entirely from stainless steel, this elegant piece of flatware draws its inspiration from the harsh majesty of the Alpine terrain. Standing at the foot of Zermatt, an opulent Swiss ski resort surrounded by breathtaking mountains, the designer conceived the strong, sharp lines of this design from the 4478m summit of Matterhorn. The Zermatt collection created for the House of Puiforcat in 2010 has already been deemed a classic by authoritative observers. A few to have sung its praises include the world's top museums, from the Centre Pompidou in Paris to the New York Museum of Arts and Design.

|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.|
