Cutipol’s Modern Cutlery Rooted in Heritage
A poetic project — that’s how Cutipol self describes their design-forward brand. I am rather certain I heard poetry in my head when I first spied this incredible product. Not only does the chic cutlery completely transform your tabletop, but Cutipol is as committed to quality as it is to design. The luxury brand draws on its roots, going back generations to the cutlery industry in Portugal. Rooted in heritage, these makers push the limits of world-class design coupled with ergonomics. The result — functional, stylish, hand-crafted modern cutlery that’s a pleasure to touch and admire.
Cutipol was founded in 1963 with the idea of expanding Portuguese heritage cutlery across borders. José Ribeiro first learned the techniques and knowledge from his father’s small workshop. By 1950, he had built the company which would later become Cutipol.
The brand is a true family affair. Ribeiro’s wife, Alice Marques, is a co-founder of the brand alongside Jose and acts as the lifeline of production and development. Jose travels the world with his children to discover the most advanced technology, machines, processes, and ultimately — audience. By the early 1980s, an intense renovation of their factory began. The children have now joined the team, bringing with them a modern intent for process, design, and internationalization.
But traditional craftsmanship will always be at the heart of Cutipol, most notably in the cutlery’s finishes. While the brand strives to keep up with innovation, the machinery is still tended to by skilled eyes and hands. The cutlery is designed with functionality and simplicity in mind. Each model goes there a selection of raw materials, before an ergonomic study of shapes, proportions, and finishes so each cutlery features fine lines — both pleasant to touch and use. “Cutipol’s worldwide excellence is known for higher quality materials and the focus on the tiniest details.”
The Goa collection in particular pushes the limits — both in material and design. Cutipol utilizes technological advances towards two distinct materials – resin and steel. The result is the perfect symbiosis of East and West, a versatile product that completely differentiates itself from traditional stainless steel cutlery.
A chic set of cutlery truly speaks for itself. I for one can’t believe how much it changes my tabletop. Knowing that each piece is also thoughtfully crafted through generations of experience is just icing on the cake. And how chic will you look eating your cake with this cutlery! That’s having your cake and eating it, too.
