In 1856, Giuseppe Sambonet, a Fine Arts graduate and the son of a nobleman from Vercelli, obtained his warrant as Master Goldsmith and established the company, Giuseppe Sambonet, depositing his seal bearing the initials “GS” at the Turin mint. At the beginning of the twentieth century his company was the Offi cial Purveyor to many noble families, including the Duchess of Genoa and the Count of Turin. In 1932, Sambonet was the fi rst company in Italy to build an industrial production plant capable of manufacturing both sterling silver and galvanic silverware. In 1938, it developed an innovative process for the production of stainless steel fl atware and developed a silver-plated steel manufacturing technique. In 1947, it started producing stainless steel knives and blades using its own technology. In 1956, Sambonet conquered the international market by being chosen, from 53 competitors, to supply the Cairo Hilton Hotel with a hollowware line that is still in its collection today. This marked the beginning of the company’s great tradition of supplying world-class hotels and restaurants.
Starting from the Sixties, great designers created collections that consolidated and popularised the company’s focus on design. Roberto Sambonet, in particular, created collections of primary importance, such as the “Pesciera”, “Center line” and “Linea 50” trays that can be admired at the MoMA in New York. Anna Castelli Ferrieri also designed a line of fl atware for Sambonet. Her Hannah collection won the Compasso d’Oro award in 1994. Special mention, lastly, must be made of the Gio Ponti fl atware line which has been produced since 1932. In 1997, Sambonet entered the Paderno group, an international leader in the production of professional cookware and kitchen utensils.

“We can no longer afford to bring products to the market which bring no joy to customers after even a short while because they are impractical, dated or simply not modern enough” – such were the words of Dr. Hermann Gretsch, whose Form 1382 revolutionised the world of porcelain in the early 30s. This legendary design, which he created back then for the time for Arzberg , has become one of the absolute classics of modern industrial design. It’s on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York as one of the few porcelain exhibits. Even today, the best designers design for life. Arzberg porcelain is always functional and always beautiful: it’s created to eat from, and never have your fill. To serve food and celebrate. To touch and admire. Use it and enjoy.
