The trend of serving a table with noble pieces that are contemporaneous and modern in their functionality as well as in their visual expression comes back.
The Forma cheese board that was designed by the Danish designer Helle Damkjær who lives in Paris, almost embodies the fluent, sculptural design speaking from Georg Jensen.
Since I live in France, a gastronomic Nirvana of the most perfect delicacy and feudal cooking art, I often participate at opulent meals and parties with consummate serviced tables where the codex of incomparable luxury is kept. My intention therefore was to design a cheese board and knives-set that mirror the luxurious but still simple Scandinavian nature”, says Helle Damkjær.
The Forma series includes three cheese knives: one all-rounder for common cheese, a parmesan cheese knife that is suitable for parmesan or other crumbly cheese sorts and a soft-cheese knife.
The cheese board whose beautiful organic design reminds of a painter’s palette is made out of oak wood. Through the palette form the board is easily to handle whilst serving the cheese. The oak wood was chosen because of its elegant quality, its beautiful colour and high bacteria-resistance, what lofts it from all the other materials.
