Behind this designer knife block lies the constructivists idea of the Bauhaus, inspired by Vladimir Tatlin, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy and others for whom l'art pour l'art was of the past, and art had to engage, politically and with the social fabric. No part of society was exempt of this outreach that was claimed for the arts, and based on arts, a new kind of space was imagined. As with the Circle, De Stil and the Bauhaus, art did not have to serve, but was the inspirational basis of a new world.
With this knife block or cutipol the contemporary designer Lara Luetke brings alive again the simple design and tasteful order for cutlery into your kitchen. Unlike conventional pieces, this version of knife blocks does not stand on the working surface, neither does it take up precious workspace or is in the view of what you really want to do in the kitchen. Moreover, the knife blades will be quick at hand and no piece gets scratched from any magnet strip. The block was inspired from a historic photograph of the toolbar of Wilhelm Wagenfelds workshop.
18,5 inch x 3,5 inch x 1,8 inch
You will find 14 slots offer enough space for your knives (half of them, slightly angeled thus, so that wider blades can be stored)
On the back side, two integrated cabinet suspensions allow a fast and easy installation – dowels and screw hooks supplied with the unit
Every knife block is handmade form walnut or hornbeam in Weimar
