Hellerup, Denmark

Stelton is an innovative Danish design house, founded in 1960 by two soldier comrades Niels Stellan Høm and Carton Madelaire. The name is a combination of their given names: Stellan + Carton = Stelton. Today, the company designs timeless and functional objects, which makes everyday life more beautiful. Their products have proven to stand the test of time aesthetically and quality-wise, and are cherished and passed down generations.
Stelton’s design families and many product lines are the result of fruitful collaborations with international designers and architects. Such collaborations have often been awarded with design awards like Red Dot, German Design Award and the ID award. Iconic designs like Arne Jacobsen’s Cylinda series and Erik Magnussen’s EM77 vacuum jug are the basis of Stelton’s DNA, and the durable, functional products are present in homes and offices all over the world.

The Italian design duo, Daniel Debiasi and Federico Sandri, created the Collar Collection especially for all coffee aficionados. For the astute coffee drinker, nothing is more important than flavour.


EM77 was designed by Erik Magnussen in 1977, and since then, the vacuum jug for coffee or tea has been made in Denmark in more than 100 different colours.


The Emma series, with its simple and elegant lines, is a beautiful addition to any kitchen counter or dinner table. The combination of stoneware and lacquered metal with details of moulded beech wood fits perfectly into a modern home.

Norman Foster

The Norman Foster Collection brings together simple sculptural form and soft geometry, to create exceptionally crafted tableware for a wide range of settings. From wine carafes to espresso cups, each object is a response to its specific function, while embodying a shared language.


Francis Cayouette is the designer behind the Pilastro series that have a sophisticated and elegant aura. The range was inspired by the elegant idiom of Art Deco, in which form and function merge.


Let the Theo collection for tea and coffee stimulate your senses. Combining matt stoneware with glaze and bamboo details, the Theo range’s natural look will bring Scandinavian simplicity to your home

To Go

Designed by Ring, To Go Click is the perfect travel mug for your favourite drink on the way to the office or school or on a walk. The cup has a state-of-the art ‘smart click’ lid allowing you to open and close the cup easily with a push on the top. When the cup is closed it keeps your coffee or tea warm for up to four hours – or cold for eight hours.

The duo behind Stelton originally tried selling sports shoes and furniture, but sales did not really take off before they heard about a small factory in Fårevejle in Northern Seeland. The factory was called ‘Danish Stainless’.
Danish Stainless produced serveware in stainless steel which was very modern in Denmark during the 1960s. After having made a deal with the owner of Danish Stainless, Jørgen Knudsen, Stelton started promoting a sauce bowl in stainless steel which became very popular with the Danish hardware stores. At the same time the gravy boat became very popular outside of Denmark. In the US products form Danish Stainless were synonymous with Danish design and were sold in exclusive department stores and design shops.
In 1963 a young Peter Holmblad was engaged as a Sales Manager and later became the CEO of Stelton. He brought visionary ideas about how to market Stelton into the company. New catalogues, packaging and graphic design were part of his strategy to create a new design brand. Peter Holmblad was the stepson of renowned architect and designers, Arne Jacobsen.

Holmblad convinced Jacobsen to design a line of servewear for Stelton, and after three years of development, the Cylinda series was launched in 1967. At the time, the cylindrical profile was considered futuristic and innovative, and it was awarded several design awards.
The next important designer that worked for Stelton was Erik Magnussen who created the iconic EM77 vacuum jug in 1977, hence the name. Later, Holmblad introduced some of his own designs like the Original watering can which has become a design classic to aesthetics with green fingers, and the complete Original bar series inspired by the cylindrical shape.
In 2004 the Ring family acquired Stelton and since then Stelton has extended its collaboration with international architects and designers. They contribute to assuring that Stelton’s assortment is characterised by a synthesis between form and function and innovative ideas. Stelton has its own internal product development and quality control department and strives to be a brand that the world’s best designers wish to work for.
