Designed by Enzo Mari for Danese Milano in 1962, the Ameland Letter Opener is considered an icon of midcentury design. It has been in continuous production since its launch, and is a part of MoMA’s permanent collection. Crafted from stainless steel ribbon, the letter opener is at once delicate and formidable, striking a careful design balance. The letter opener features a satin finish, making it a striking accent despite its simple form. This heirloom-quality desk accessory is designed with two ends, making it easy to open letters, however the blade is held. With its refined look, this is an accessory that will likely stay on top of the desk, rather than put away in a drawer.
