STARLUX showcases First Class tableware by Clip
The company teamed up with English brand William Edwards to create a bespoke collection of fine bone china with subtle white-on-white decor inlaid in the glazing and matte gold highlighting the rims. The collection was designed to serve both Asian and Western delicacies. According to a February 13 release, the equipment includes a playful superposed sandwich tray for high tea service on selected routes. “Every piece of the set,” the release said, “embodies understated luxury.”
The cutlery was developed in partnership with Robert Welch, a heritage English brand. “True to the silversmithing DNA of the brand, every element is finely polished and shaped for a comfortable hold, while their hollow core makes them incredibly light, both enjoyable to use and efficient to be carried onboard an aircraft,” the release said.
“Robert Welch Designs has a long history of partnerships with the luxury travel industry, dating back to my father’s tableware designs used onboard the SS Oriana Ocean Liner launched in 1959, and we are delighted that STARLUX should also choose to include Robert Welch cutlery and tableware products for their new first class cabin. It is in our DNA to produce timeless, elegant and functional pieces of the highest quality and we are confident these will further enhance the onboard experience for STARLUX guests,” said Rupert Welch, Joint-Managing Director of Robert Welch Designs in the release.
STARLUX said: “We are delighted to have this partnership with Clip to develop the finest tableware selection for our passengers. Pairing up these elegant pieces with our delicate inflight cuisine, we believe our First Class passengers can enjoy an unprecedented dining experience on STARLUX’s flights.”
The new tableware will be on board the airline’s brand-new Airbus 350 which will start flying in 2023.
