original flower watering can

Design Peter Holmblad, 1978
Stainless steel
Made by Stelton

On the occasion of Stelton's 60th anniversary in 2020, the timeless and classic Original flower watering can was relaunched. Simultaneously, the relaunch was a tribute to Peter Holmblad who back in 1978 designed the watering can. Holmblad is the designer behind every product in the Original-series which is a central part of Stelton's design DNA. With its elegant idiom, functionality meets aesthetics and in addition to its original function: keeping flowers and green plants fresh, it is also a decorative sculpture when not in use.

Peter Holmblad (born 1934), previous export manager, CEO and owner of Stelton, is a key figure in Stelton's history. Between 1963 and 2004, he was responsible for Stelton's transformation from a production company of common, stainless steel serving dishes and bowls to a well-established and respected design company. He is also a skilled designer with a strong commercial understanding and an eye for detail. Among other things, Holmblad is the creator of the well-known flower watering can as well as the Original series consisting of the well-known cheese slicer and the perfect bar equipment.

In 1964, after several attempts, Peter Holmblad managed to convince his stepfather, architect Arne Jacobsen, to design a new coffee and tea service in stainless steel. This resulted in the famous Cylinda Line, which won the ID award in 1967. The design collaboration marked the beginning of a new era for Stelton. After Arne Jacobsen's death in 1971, Peter Holmblad engaged the potter Erik Magnussen as a new house designer, and Stelton has since collaborated with a long list of Danish and international designers and architects.
