WILKENS Epoca Cutlery PatternProf. Wolf Karnagel is among the most important designers for modern tableware.
In addition to numerous designs for porcelain manufactures, Prof. W. Karnagel designed the complete on-board equipment of Deutsche Lufthansa in the 1980s. Also inspired by the Bauhaus, his designs entail function and precision down to the smallest details.
For WILKENS, Karnagel created the Epoca cutlery in 1975, which is characterized by a consistently straightforward shape and a very good haptic experience. Extremely well-balanced geometric proportions in combination with the apparent volume of material, precisely defined closures, a generous smooth surface mount to uncompromisingly clear overall forms. Award-winning WILKENS Epoca is the expression of creativity in shape.
WILKENS offers Epoca in 925 sterling silver and in 180g silver plating, as well as in 18/10 stainless steel.
The best treatment for properly made silver is constant use. With daily use your silverware takes on a patina from the myriad of scratches that scatter the light that falls on its surface in all directions. Using your silver flatware daily will also prevent tarnish. WILKENS silver cutlery may be cleaned in the dishwasher with a mild detergent. For special silver care we recommend the range of care products by Hagerty. This will preserve the shine and lustre of your WILKENS silverware.
Enhance your cutlery with a personalized WILKENS engraving making it a unique gift, special memory or timeless treasure.
