Marc, who originally trained as a silversmith, knew that the weight and balance of things is incredibly important, especially when designing flatware which in a sense is a kind of Holy Grail of the household product.

Strelka, meaning ‘arrow’, was the name of the Russian dog that travelled into space in 1960.
