The History of Stelton
The name Stelton is a merge of both the two founder’s names, Stellan and Carton, that founded Stelton in the 1960s. To begin with, Stelton sold trainers and furniture. The big breakthrough came years later when the brand decided to collaborate with Danish Stainless, a small factory specializing in stainless kitchenware. The first product, a sauce boat, was an immediate international success and was quickly followed up by further designs.
The CEO of the time, Peter Holmblad, was one of the biggest driving factors in Stelton’s success. As the stepson to one of Denmark’s leading designers in Denmark, Arne Jacobsen, Holmblad collaborated with Jacobsen to create classics such as the Cylinda range; the first of many designer collaborations.
