I sometimes wonder why companies do what they do. Top picture: The Ildpot series by Grethe Meyer designed in 1976 and produced by Royal Copenhagen for about 10 years. Grethe Meyer got the assignement to design a series of bowls and pots that could be used on the stove, in the oven, on the table and go in the freezer. Bottom picture: The Cook and Serve series just launched by Rig-Tig by Stelton. I don't know. I am puzzled. #ildpot @grethe_meyer_design #cookandserve @rig_tig #stelton#design#originals#stoneware
Grethe Meyer was born in the Danish town of Svendborg on April 8th 1918.
In 1947, at the age of 29, she was the only woman to graduate as an architect from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Being a woman pioneer in a time dominated by men would turn out to be her life long fate.
Grethe Meyer’s career spun over 50 years. Her precise idiom and high work ethic has given us timeless designs that have become everyday classics in the modern home.
