10 of the over-40s

Lovers of design classics are in for another treat. Ever since the 1960s, bar accessories from Arne Jacobsen's Cylinda-Line have defined the good life when it comes to serving everything from the perfect martini (shaken or stirred) to a classic scotch and
soda. The bar set includes a cocktail mixer and spoon, a shaker, ice bucket with tongs, a two-litre pitcher with strainer, small glass coasters and a serving tray. Paul Smith has transformed Jacobsen's bar series into a gorgeous fantasy in black. The sp
ecial titanium alloy surface lends the steel a rich, deep black colour. Handles on the serving tray and the ice bucket remain in the original brushed steel finish, creating an effective contrast. Another surprising innovation is a collection of statements
by the British designer himself, engraved into the black surface to reveal their message in steel. Paul Smith asks us to consider thoughts such as "Take pleasure seriously" and "Start something new" as we enjoy our drinks. Statement is the ideal gift fo
r the design-loving man or woman who is celebrating a special birthday, an anniversary or merely the joy of everyday living. The black colour is titanium surfacing, which gives a very hard and durable surface. The statements are engraved through the tita
nium surface and into the stainless steel.
