Eddingtons has announced its new distribution partnership with Danish housewares brand Stelton and its sister brand RIG-TIG for the UK and Eire. Effective immediately there will be an official relaunch for the brands at Exclusively (August 24-25).
Scandinavian design has been synonymous with Stelton for over 50 years. The company was first established following a manufacturing agreement with Danish Stainless, which produces high quality Danish Design tableware. Stelton began marketing a stainless gravy boat that soon become a bestseller in Denmark and further afield.
Later Peter Holmblad, the stepson of Arne Jacobsen (perhaps Denmark’s greatest architect and designer), brought his far-reaching vision to the company when he joined as managing director.
In 1967 the Cylinda–line was created by Arne Jacobsen, becoming a design classic that is still sought after for its timeless style and simplicity.
“Stelton products like the iconic EM77 vacuum jug and the popular Emma collection of coffee and tea vacuum jugs and tableware create a synthesis that embodies innovative and different ideas in relation to concept, design and materials,” notes Eddingtons’s Tabitha Monkhouse. “Meanwhile, RIG-TIG – the younger sister brand of Stelton – is a kitchen brand that values function, design and resources. In collaboration with international designers RIG-TIG designs award-winning, functional products based on a circular economy mindset.”
