Dansk Arabesque makes a bold statement! Coupe-shaped china (the plate is concave, with no rim), round, with strong geometric lines, circles, and shapes covering the plate from the center to the outside rim – Arabesque represents the stylish, fashion-forward design that is a hallmark of Dansk china. Produced in 1996, this pattern looks like it?s fresh out of the studio, yet it?s more than 10 years old! Arabesque takes its name from a style of Islamic art that comprises repeating geometric forms. Often seen on the walls of mosques, arabesque suggests an infinite, continuous pattern beyond the shape of the visible world. The Greek texts of Plato, whose philosophy suggested a hidden world, and Euclid, whose discourses in mathematics and geometry were famous in the ancient world, were translated into Arabic, and influenced this style of art.
While our featured crystal pattern, Dansk Karin , is very clean and simple in design, its shape and weight provide the perfect complement to Dansk Arabesque. The bowl of the glass is squarish in shape with a thick base, the stem forms a strong pedestal shape, and the foot is round and thick. Karin crystal has presence! Like Arabesque, Karin epitomizes Dansk design philosophy. More than 50 years ago, Dansk set out to create a casual design aesthetic that was truly functional, and the brand has become synonymous with modern living. Dansk products typically are dishwasher and microwave safe, incorporating high design with convenience of use. When you see Dansk Karin crystal on your table, you?ll agree that the company achieved its goal of merging form with function!
Dansk Torun is an understated 18/10 stainless steel flatware design (18/10 represents the ratio of chromium and nickel used in the stainless steel, which adds luster and durability to the pieces), with a rounded tip and glossy finish. But make no mistake, Torun has plenty of flair! The handle narrows to a slim waist near the bowl of the utensils, which feature dynamic curves, as does the blade of the dinner knife. Remember, Dansk is respected the world over for the innovative design and high quality of its flatware. With your Dansk Arabesque china, your Dansk Karin crystal, and your Dansk Torun stainless steel flatware, along with your favorite linens and accessories, you’ll be setting a table that is modern, beautiful, stylish, and full of pizzazz!
