There are many different elements that go into a great meal, and not all of it relates to the food on the table. The setting of the table itself can take a meal from mediocre to magnificent, with everything from the linen, china, and flatware all playing a part in the dining experience. If you are one of those that believe that a perfect place setting can truly complement a great meal, you should really consider taking a look at the Gio Ponti flatware by Sambonet.
Gio Ponti was an Italian architect with the eye of an artist. He is as much remembered for his furnishings and artistic designs as he is for his stunning architectural work in Milan. The Gio Ponti flatware collection produced by Sambonet is a true testament to the design genius that the man delivered in everything that he created. These pieces go far beyond the mere functionality of many cutlery collections, as they deliver an aesthetically pleasing design that ranks them among the world’s most stunning contemporary flatware collections.
We carry an extensive collection of Sambonet silverware, including the Gio Ponti line. The 5-piece mirror polish flatware set is comprised of a dessert spoon, table fork, table knife, dessert fork and tea-coffee spoon, and is available in either a solid or hollow handle design. The 18/10 stainless steel comes with a classic mirror polish that literally reflects the beauty of the timeless Gio Ponti designs. If it’s a blend of classic style and modern flatware design that you are looking for, this is the set for you.
The other Gio Ponti set that we have on offer is the 5-piece silverware set, which contains the same pieces as the flatware collection. The difference here is that each piece of cutlery in this set is made from silver plated 18/10 stainless steel. This set also comes in your choice of solid or steel handle, and is the perfect collection for those that like to throw upscale dinner parties that have table settings to die for. The Sambonet Gio Ponti silverware set may not be the cheapest item in our store, but it is a collection that is built to last, and whose timeless design can be passed on from generation to generation.
If you ever decide to take a trip to Milan, you will be sure to see buildings that were the brainchild of Gio Ponti. Yes, you may photograph them so that they will live forever in your memory, but it’s never quite the same as seeing the real thing up close and personal. The same can be said for the Sambonet Gio Ponti cutlery collections, as they really have to be seen to get a true feel for their magnificent design.
