Dressed Pots & Pans, Stainless Steel


May I invite you at my table,
let me serve you food and wine,
let me get my special plates,
my long legged crystals, my shiny silverware.

Because today is a special day,
because today the sun came up,
because today the air filled our lungs with endless
amounts of air,
because today children were born from happy parents,
and because today I meet some friends.

Today is a special day because no-one died and
no-one cried,
because parrots repeat what you tell them,
because there are cookies in the shape of flowers,
this is a day worth celebrating, a day worth happy faces,
worth our best dress our silk stockings our gold green Sunday shirt.

Today we don’t eat, we dine,
today we don’t walk, we dance,
today we don’t sleep, we dream,
today we don’t smile, we laugh,
today we don’t wear boots, we wear crystal Cinderellas,
today we celebrate life and we are dressed for the occasion. 
Surprise your heart with your eyes and see that tomorrow will be another
very special day...







To accompany the place settings, glasses and cutlery of 2011, and the non stick pots and pans set of 2012, Marcel has added a stockpot, a casserole with two handles, a pasta-set, a colander and a milk boiler, all made from stainless steel. Like the non stick collection, these pieces are dressed to cook and dressed to serve and are accompanied by patterned sparkling silver lids.  Jewels in the kitchen become jewels on the table. Time to get dressed for the occasion. Designed 2012.

Does glass always pass the light?  

Do you recognise this face

Paper is wood

Do you remember antiques

Do you like your gold shiny? 

Are you fond of white

Would you like to take a seat

Sparkly like silver or shiny like gold

Are you afraid of black

Meet the family
