ABOUT

Anything made in this beautiful cookware must taste delicious!!!! Therefore, you must have these pieces whether you are just starting your collection or adding to it. Enameled cast iron has long been a preferred form of cookware for many chefs and homemakers alike, and these examples designed by Michael Lax for Copco are top of the line in both style and function. Their vintage condition is great with lots of use left in them. And just look at their bight colors and Scandinavian Modern lines.

Michael Lax (1929-1999) began his design career in 1956 working with Russel Wright on a series of dinnerware designs. What better way to start a design career than with one of the mid-century modern design icons! Born in New York his prior education included New York School of Music and Art and Alfred University’s New York State College of Ceramics. He went to Finland on a Fulbright Fellowship to study where he learned Scandinavian modern design. In1960, given is first solo design break by Copco, he began working on enameled cast iron. Even designing, in 1962, a teakettle which sold more than one million units before it was discontinued in 1980. Lax also did designs for Lightolier including a high-intensity lamp that is part of MOMA’s permanent collection; U.S. Plywood including playground equipment and an adult treehouse; Salton; Tupperware; Mikasa; and Rosenthal. And even a bathtub for American Cyanamid.

the details

Handsome 6-piece set of mid-century Danish modern enameled cast iron cookware designed by Michael Lax for Copco. Six-piece set includes one seven-inch orange pot and lid, one seven-inch yellow pot and lid, one orange ten-inch skillet, and one yellow twelve-inch skillet. They are in wonderful vintage condition overall. They do show signs that they were used but nothing major. I did notice a small ½ inch crack in the enamel by the handle on the yellow skillet. Please see photos. Circa 1960s-1980s
