FAITES VOTRE CHOIX :
3 good reasons
- you have little storage space in your open kitchen and you'd like to be able to elegantly store ingredients on your counter
- you are a rationalist and have always dreamed of having stackable, solid and esthetically pleasing boxes in your kitchen
- you like to have people over and offer them a variety of delicious cookies, but you haven't yet found a container that is on a par with your baking talents
how does it work?
CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZES
The hardest thing about using these boxes is choosing the right models for your storage needs. Because once they are in your hands, they will show you themselves just how functional, beautiful, easy to open and close, stackable, and dishwasher save they are...
Here is a visual guide to help you choose from this impressive line: 7 models of white boxes, 1 graduated translucent model, a square platter for easy transport, a pair of matching graters for fans of grated cheese or grated vegetable salads, and even stickers for label freaks (like us):

A very well designed storage solution, from the boxes themselves to the accessories:
- stackable boxes, dishwasher-safe, without phtalates or BPA
- a variety of shapes and sizes that can hold everything from spaghetti to truffles
- adaptable graters that can be used to grate cheese and other things on a board or directly into a storage box
- esthetically pleasing labels so you can identify the contents of a box at a glance
Stelton is a Danish company founded in the 1960s by two designers, Niels Stellan and Carton Madelaire, who hooked up with a factory specializing in stainless steel, Danish Stainless. Their first success was a stainless steel bowl (right).
But Stelton really got going when Peter Holmblad became general director. Son-in-law of famed designer-architect Arne Jacobsen, it was only natural that Homblad suggest the two work together. If the wonderful Cylinda Line took a little time to take off, it was because global success was waiting!
Peter Holmblad put his all into this design, fully aware that everyday household objects were produced by hundreds of companies and that they all looked the same. After Arne Jacobsen's death in 1971, Holmblad went in search of new product ideas. In 1977, he asked a young designer, Erik Magnussen, to create a thermos, a product that was very much in fashion at the time. Magnussen managed to stay faithful to the spirit of the Cylinda Line while creating a truly innovative concept.
Since then, over 10 million Stelton thermoses have been sold, and the model has been awarded many prizes by the design community. The Stelton water filter jug is a direct descendant of this inspired genius!
Rig-Tig reflects Stelton's willingness to innovate, combining design values, respect for the environment, and affordable prices. A concept that works: Stelton's stackable storage boxes received the Red Dot Design Award 2012 (Germany)
quality: top quality specifications for a product line that is both simple and well-made
design: carefully chosen materials, a beautiful marriage of wood and plastic, both intelligent and functional
functional : Calling Danish design functional is redundant; if you haven't already tried it, now is the time. To try it is to love it.
