Spaceware from the 50's

What you see in the photo above is my boring flatware from the Swedish pride IKEA. They are super plain looking and I have been in the hunt for new cutlery for quite some time. I want something that stands out and not only looks nicer then the above mentioned knifes and forks, but that has been really hard to find. One trend right now is to have black cutlery but I do not like that at all, because it makes the table setting look way to dark.

But then I found this amazing set and now know what I will be getting as soon as I can to replace the IKEA cutlery with. 

This set of flatware are from the Danish design house Georg Jensen and they are designed by the legendary designer Arne Jacobsen. I'm completely in love with the design and I wanted them as soon as I laid my eyes on them, but after some research I do not only want them, I NEED them!

Even though they look a bit hard to actually eat with hehe.

Now to the cool part

Arne Jacobsen design designed this set of flatware in 1957, and still they look very modern, almost futuristic. So futuristic in fact, that Stanley Kubrick used these as the cutlery in the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, in 1968. That is 50 years ago and they still look as cool and futuristic today. Now that is a sign of good design.

Also, if that wasn't enough to make me want them, they also appeared in Star Trek Voyager AND Enterprise. So as the big Sci-Fi fan I am, I can't not buy these. Right?
