In 1997, we launched a small range of kitchen utensils which came to play an important role. The range was named Eva Solo, because it consisted of individual products – or ‘solo’ items as they were called. Back then, the company was simply called ‘Eva’, but the new products proved such a big and enduring success that in 2010 the entire company was renamed Eva Solo.
Eva Solo and Tools
Key to the company’s success is also its desire and ability to build close working relations with leading designers and craftsmen. For 15 years, the Tools designer duo has played a decisive role in the development of our Eva Solo product range. Tools is run by Claus Jensen and Henrik Holbæk, who have designed every single product. About the Eva Solo brand, Claus Jensen says: “Each product represents a unique combination of form and function. However, all the products spring from Eva Solo’s long-standing experience to which we have simply added a contemporary look.” Today, Tools is behind the ongoing development of the Eva Solo products. Together with the designer duo, we are continuously generating innovative and exciting new ideas for the Eva Solo range.
Eva Trio and Ole Palsby
In the late 1970s, we made design history with the designer Ole Palsby (1935-2010), who designed the products for our Eva Trio brand. Today, more than 35 years after the initial launch, the brand still holds its own.
Back in the 1970s, Erik Mangor, the then owner of Eva Solo, contacted Ole Palsby, and the two agreed to develop the ultimate series of pots and pans. The result was the Eva Trio brand, which was launched in 1977 and which back then comprised three different series, hence the name ‘Trio’.
Everything about the Eva Trio products was ground-breaking:
their distinctive design
the option of mixing and matching the brand’s different series: copper, cast iron and aluminium, which, according to Ole Palsby, was the ultimate starting point for good cooking
their professional quality, and the simple fact that the saucepans could be stacked.
Good design is at the heart of everything we do. Good design which is a positive experience for consumers, both functionally and visually.
For us, design is a combination of aesthetics, functionality and the choice of materials. We work exclusively with designers who excel at what they do. As a result, together with our designers we have, over the years, been awarded more than 200 international design prizes, including iF Product Design Awards, Good Design Awards, Red Dot Design Awards and the Designpreis. However, we never rest on our laurels; in fact, we go out of our way to launch new products every six months in the form of both a spring collection and an autumn collection.
