This is connoisseurs’ cutlery for people who appreciate fine dining, bringing effortless elegance to any table setting.
Paris has proved phenomenally popular since it was first introduced in 1993 and has consistently been one of our best-selling designs. This cutlery is beautifully balanced with a hollow handled knife that feels perfect in the hand. Each piece is perfectly proportioned with delicate teardrop handles in satin stainless steel.
Used in many prestige restaurants and luxury yachts, the timeless design of Paris has a universal appeal. A perfect example of the purist simplicity which has always been the basis of David Mellor’s design philosophy.
A great number of specialist craft processes are involved in the making and this gives Paris its perfectionist finish. It is modern cutlery of exceptional finesse.
Satin finish. Knife blades are made from high carbon stainless steel for a superior cutting edge.
David Mellor Design operates on the simple principle that well designed tableware is a vital part of any interior. The company was set up by David Mellor, Royal Designer for Industry, in the 1950s. The first and now famous David Mellor shop opened in Sloane Square, London, in 1969 and soon became a focal point of Swinging Sixties Chelsea and remains one of London’s most original and individual shops. We run our own design office within the company and so the David Mellor collection is constantly evolving. Many of our products are designed by Corin Mellor, Creative Director, exclusively for the David Mellor shops and are produced by specially selected workshop producers and manufacturers. David Mellor now holds one of the most impressive collections of the finest British Crafts and sophisticated modern tableware and kitchenware, including the world famous David Mellor Cutlery, to be found on the international scene.
David Mellor was one of the great 20th century designers with an international reputation for his cutlery. He was born in Sheffield and trained originally as a silversmith. Examples of his metalwork are in museum collections as over the world. David Mellor established his first workshop in 1973 before moving production to his purpose-built factory, The Round Building in Hathersage, Derbyshire, in 1990. He has drawn on Sheffield traditions of craftsmanship in evolving a product altogether of our time.
