Gio Ponti Conca Flatware - Set of 5
Description
This Gio Ponti Conca Flatware set is distinguished by details such as a knife with a shorter blade and concave forks with shorter prongs. The fork’s concave shape is designed to combine a bite of solid food with the dish’s juice or gravy. Each utensil in this five-piece set is balanced so that it can rest off the side of your plate or bowl. Made in Italy of 18/10 stainless steel, the Gio Ponti Conca Flatware set includes a salad fork, dinner fork, knife, soup spoon and teaspoon. They measure in a range of 5.5 to 9.75"l. Gio Ponti’s work is represented in MoMA’s collection.
Why We Chose This
Conceived in 1939 by Gio Ponti, a designer with work in MoMA's collection, this Conca Flatware set was first presented in 1951 at the IX Triennale in MIlan. Ponti was inspired by a fresh approach to cutlery, thinking about it “in its perfect form as tools." The rationalism that characterizes Ponti's designs is also expressed in these flatware pieces—when designing them, he analyzed the formal characteristics of cutlery as everyday objects, and devised new ways of making flatware useful.
