PAN 999 Saucepan
The delicate art of saucing deserves an artful tool like Tobia Scarpa’s PAN 999 Sauce Pan ( with round handles). Its well — sized and perfectly shaped to buttress the scrape of a wooden spoon, or contain the froth of a whisk, while its hollow handles allow its contents to be removed quickly. The Sauce Pan is a standout of Scarpa’s Cooking in Silver cookware line, manufactured by the Milanese silversmith studio San Lorenzo; as with its companion sauce and frying pans, the Sauce Pan is made of pure iron with an interior pure silver, which conducts heat more uniformly than copper while remaining antibacterial whether used on conduction, glass, ceramic cooktops or with gas burners and ovens. A single lid tops any pan in the line, and all may be easily cleaned with a simple application of White of Spain non-toxic clay.
Caring for the Pan999 Saucepan is simple. It is hand-wash and dishwasher-safe. When hand-washing, only use regular sponges, not metal sponges. When cooking, only use wood, plastic or silicone utensils, never metal ones.
Other items in this collection include: pot, small saucepan, shallow pan, frying pan, cup, and a lid that can fit most of the cookware of this collection. All of these seven pieces are sold individually at Cooks & Poets.
Tobia + Afra Scarpa
Italian born husband and wife duo Tobia and Afra Scarpa’s design work knew no bounds. They crafted cookware, architecture, interior design, furniture, clothing, and art glass with a keen eye for material, technology and aesthetics that sustains the test of trends and time.
The son of architect and academic Carlo Scarpa, Tobia was born in Venice, Italy in 1935. Afra Bianchin was born in Montebelluna, Italy in 1937. Both attended the University Iuav di Venezia, graduating with architectural degrees in 1957. Carlo worked as a glass designer for Murano glassworks from 1957 – 1960. Together, the Scarpas opened their own design office in Afra’s home town in 1960. By 1969, both Tobia and Afra Scarpa graduated from the Venice Institute of Architecture, with Afra Scarpa winning a Compasso d’Oro award the following year for the Soriana armchair.
They collaborated with industrial design manufacturers throughout their careers, including work with B&B Italia, San Lorenzo Silver, Knoll International, Gavina, Cassina, Meritalia, Flos, Fabbian, and Veas. Their designs are on show in the leading museums of the world, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and have been chosen for all major international shows.
