Spoon bowl by Toni Grilo for Christofle
His 2006 ‘From’ collection, Toni Grilo, the 28 year-old Franco-Portuguese artist audaciously reinterpreted the creations of the great Parisien silversmith, Christofle – turning knives and forks into works of art.
Produced in Christofle’s ‘Haute Orfèvrerie’ workshops from 30 silver-plated Christofle spoons, this surprising but apparently effortless piece is one of the collection’s most charming. You can’t help feeling that the illustrious role call of Christofle’s historic clients (King Louis-Philippe, Napoleon III, the Tsar of Russia, the Emperor of Mexico, Pope Pius IX among them) would have approved.
