Portuguese designer Miguel Flores Soeiro has shaped items in this cutlery set by twisting the stainless steel pieces where the handle meets the functional end. Designed for Portuguese tableware brand Herdmar, Miguel Flores Soeiro's Malmö cutlery range is typified by the twist detail on the knives, forks and spoons. The forms are reminiscent of Santiago Calatrava's contorted Malmö Tower, so the set is named after the Swedish city where the building is located. Handles are bent

Within the exhibition I will buy flowers myself, Zupanc tackles the established attributes which are this time especially inspired by the stories of some of the most famous female literary heroines. Her display space thus opens up through a sequence of spicy comment

Copper conducts heat efficiently, so water is brought to the boiling point quickly. The kettle is light weight yet durable, and with care will provide many years of service.
