Object history
In 1966, the Syndicat des arts de la table asked Roger Tallon to create a series of modern cutlery. The designer, who always considered his work according to a global approach proposed a complete project including tableware, cutlery and glasses. The cyfer 3 in the name '3T' is an allusion to the 3 makers, while the letter T refers to Table, Tradition, Touch and tangentially the T of Tallon. The glass was made by Daum, the porcelain by Raynaud & Cie, and the matalwork by Ravinet d’Enfert.
