“The Art of Service” at the highest level: Cutting Edge by HEPP. The new collection from cutlery specialist HEPP stands out thanks to its distinctive and disruptive design. Inspired by the East Asian tradition of using spoons and chopsticks together, CUTTING EDGE combines the essence of Western and Asian table culture in its unique design. The surprising recess on the handle in combination with gently rounded edges makes the cutlery an eye-catcher. The dynamic design language continues elegantly with the gentle recess in the transition to the spoon – which, like the prongs, is deliberately minimalist. The extraordinary design of the knife completes this extraordinary new development. The special opening in the handle is not only visually appealing, but also gives a feeling of exclusivity when you hold it. This bold statement for the laid table was created by New York designer Kickie Chudikova.
Kickie Chudikova creates exquisite masterpieces for renowned brands around the globe. Her aim is to give every design an unmistakable elegance. “Her work for HEPP shows how she can implement this aspiration at the highest level. The CUTTING EDGE cutlery collection makes an unmistakable statement in our product range as well as on the tables of our customers,” says Carsten Kulcke, General Manager of proHeq GmbH. CUTTING EDGE will be presented to trade visitors for the first time at Intergastra in Stuttgart. “We are looking forward to the unveiling of this unique and bold design and are excited to see the reactions,” says Kulcke. With nine exquisite pieces of cutlery, the new collection fulfils all the requirements of top gastronomy and will ensure unique sophistication with every course.

HEPP count among the world’s preferred suppliers to leading hotels, hotel chains and restaurants, as well as international cruise ship operators and airlines.
The HEPP brand is part of Groupe SEB and is marketed together with the other B2B brands under the “SEB Professional” umbrella.
