Today, design being a well established and defined parameter, you may safely claim that Kay Bojesen, through his many groundbreaking projects and ideas within the world of applied arts, was the first industrial designer in Denmark. Since the relaunch of Grand Prix, now artfully manufactured in Japan and crafted in 18/8 stainless steel, former Head Chef of the world0famous Danish restaurant Noma, Matt Orlando, has chosen the flatware for his newly opened restaurant Amass in Copenhagen. The reason why: It symbolizes not only the essence of Danish craftsmanship, but also quality and functionality. The company is today purveyor to Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark.
However, the flatware has not only gained resonance in Europe but also in the US. Several design experts have emphasized the flatware as the most iconic Danish design from the twentieth century. The world famous American architect Michael Sheridan highlights Kay Bojesen's Grand Prix flatware as one of his favourite Danish designs. Sheridan explains, "The Grand Prix flatware is an industrial product but the curves have their roots in handcraft and a genuine joy of aesthetics. I have used it at home since 2002 and I would argue that it is the best all-around flatware of modern times."
