Arne Jacobsen: Objects (Flatware-Cylinda Line-AJ series-Clocks-Watches)

Cylinda-line was awarded:
+The ID-prize 1967 by The Danish Society of Industrial Design and
+The International Design Award 1968 by The American Institute of Interior Designers.

The idea behind the line was to create a true line of tableware where the design correlation between individual items would a harmony between the entire table setting. The result is the famous Cylinda Line which launched in 1967.
