A minimalist classic featured in the Museum's collection, this flatware was designed by Arne Jacobsen and represents the essence of the Danish modern style. It has been in continuous production since it was introduced in 1957. Used as the flatware for the crew in Stanley Kubrick's film, 2001: A Space Odyssey, this flatware is sleek with the subtlest of details. The five-piece place setting includes a dinner fork and knife, soup spoon, salad fork, and teaspoon. Made of matte-finish 18/8 stainless steel. Manufactured by Georg Jensen.

Remembered for his contributions to Functionalism, Arne Emil Jacobsen (1902–1971) was a Danish architect, and furniture and homewares designer. His 1950s stacking chairs, which are represented in MoMA's collection, are instantly recognizable worldwide, while his flatware set from 1957, also a design in the Museum's collection, was used as a prop in the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey. (The pieces still seem futuristic, even today.) Jacoben's work has been features in MoMA exhibitions, including Transformations in Modern Architecture (1979) and Plywood: Material, Process, Form (2011–2013).
