About David Mellor

David Mellor Design operates on the simple principle that well-designed equipment can improve your life.

David Mellor's approach to design was always to some extent that of a craftsman, in his close involvement in materials and techniques and his insistence on the highest standards of environment and working conditions. All David Mellor buildings have been of special architectural merit. His original studio-workshop in Sheffield was designed in the 1960s by Patric Guest of Mayorcas & Guest and is now a listed building. In the 1970s David Mellor embarked on the restoration of a historic building, Broom Hall, in central Sheffield. The successful integration of the cutlery workshops received an Architectural Heritage Year Award.

The Round Building, David Mellor's cutlery factory in the Peak District National Park, was completed in 1990. Mellor collaborated with the architect Sir Michael Hopkins in evolving a design which is highly functional in a rural area of outstanding natural beauty. The Round Building has won numerous architectural awards.

The David Mellor Design Museum at Hathersage, opened in 2006 in another building purpose designed by Michael Hopkins. The David Mellor Design Museum covers the whole broad spectrum of David Mellor's work from tea spoons to traffic lights over the past half century. David Mellor retired in 2005 and passed away in 2009. His son Corin Mellor, an interior and product designer, is now Creative Director of the company.

Can I put my Cutipol and David Mellor serving utensils in the dishwasher?

The Cutipol collection is made from high-grade brushed stainless steel and resin, which is safe to put in the dishwasher. If cutlery is being placed in a basket in the dishwasher, place the handle side up to avoid any handles slipping through. Make sure the cutlery is completely dry before storing it in a dry place. Extra care should be taken with the higher grade 420 steel knife blades as they are less resistant to oxidation.
