Futuristic cutlery fit for a Space Odyssey
(Updated 24 May 2018)
Kubrick’s sci-fi masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) gave us a glimpse of what the future might look like. So visionary and well researched was the production design, film set design and props, it is near impossible even some 50 years later to escape the ‘retro-future’ it defined. Many of the furniture pieces and props featured in the film are still sought after and in use today including the Space Odyssey cutlery.
The elegant, futuristic flatware set used by the Jupiter Mission crew in Discovery One was designed a decade earlier in 1957, by another visionary – Danish designer Arne Jacobsen.
Given the modernist aesthetic, this stainless steel cutlery set feels utterly contemporary and remains the tableware of choice for many designers and aesthetes, aside of it’s 2001 connections.
