Based in Hong Kong, Ponti Design Studio has dreamed up superb products for the likes of LG, Fujitsu and Philips. Now, Andrea Ponti has revealed his tastes for aluminium flatware. The Dune collection has an undoubtedly contemporary look and feel, and Brogue particularly likes the attention to detail paid to the innovative packaging. The choice of aluminium as a raw material naturally makes the cutlery ultra-light and somewhat sleeker than steel or titanium flatware, while the anodised finish means it is durable and easy to clean. Ponti chose the name for the pieces as the natural formation echoes the shape of the flatware: in every piece the straight handle gives way to a curved transition that resembles a sand dune. The thoughtful packaging is freestanding and can be used to store the cutlery, or, alternatively, as a rack to display the flatware.
