The new decoration on the timeless, avant-garde Suomi range from Rosenthal follows the popular trend for black-and-white design. The matte-black gives way towards the edges to a modern pattern broken up with white, which lends the collection vibrancy and energy.
The most impressive feature about the Suomi New Generation Ardesia – design: Timo Sarpanevais is the edge itself, where professional and hobby chefs alike can use food colourings to write messages, thereby engaging in a unique dialogue with their guests.
The new matte design is available exclusively for Suomi New Generation, whose plates feature a wider rim and harmonise perfectly with the puristic, Scandinavian style of the existing Suomi collection pieces.
Timo Sarpaneva (1926–2006) was a painter, graphic artist and designer who, since the 1950s, was one of the leading exponents of Scandinavian handicrafts. In addition to functional design, he was particularly interested in exploring the possibilities of glass as a sculptural medium, unfettered by the restrictions of functional design. When designing the compact, organic Suomi design in 1976, Sarpaneva was inspired by the round, smooth pebbles found on Finland’s coasts. Suomi has been added to the permanent collection of the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris as an example of contemporary design.
Sambonet Rock `n` Rose
After the success of 1965 Vintage Quarzo Nero, Sambonet has expanded its offer of non-stick aluminium frying pans and woks. Rock’n’Rose combines technological expertise in the kitchen with the ongoing stylistic and conceptual research for which the brand is internationally recognised.
Simple, curved lines and a fascinating stone-effect texture, available in two shades. The dark Rock version is inspired by the grit, intensity and enthusiasm that motivates every cookery enthusiast when inviting guests and friends to dinner. The pale Rose shade expresses the energy, love and attention that goes into the preparation of tasty dishes. The wood-effect Bakelite handle is a design touch that adds harmony to the shape. Ergonomic and soft-touch, it is an invitation to immediately try your hand at the stove.
Rock’n’Rose delivers professional performance thanks to its five-layer non-stick coating, which guarantees thermal efficiency, scratch resistance and durability over time. Ideal for both slow and high-flame cooking, it is also perfect on induction surfaces and can be conveniently washed in the dishwasher after use.
The frying pan is available in three diameters – 20, 24 and 28 centimetres – and is a real all-purpose utensil in the kitchen, perfect for all kinds of cooking. The wok is great for tossing pasta and can also be used instead of many other pots for frying, stewing and steaming. With Rock’n’Rose you can have lots of fun in the kitchen, with style!
