WMF Professional and HEPP has launched a sustainability programme designed to breathe new life into old cutlery.

The new concept – Second Life – gives second-hand cutlery, returns and discontinued products a new chance – in the spirit of a sustainable circular economy. By opting for Second Life cutlery, restaurants benefit from the wide variety of collections from WMF Professional and HEPP. The stonewashed menu items, coffee spoons and cake forks are mixed across the collection, emphasising the Second Life vintage character.

WMF and HEPP has launched Second Life, giving old cutlery a fresh new look

During the machine stonewashing process, grinding tools work on the surface of the cutlery like small files. The result is irregular material removal, meaning that no two pieces are the same. This impressive vintage look works particularly well in conjunction with rustic porcelain – or it can act as a departure in style from more subtle collections.

To ensure the cutlery is enjoyed for many years to come, the table knives are sharpened during reconditioning and as a finishing touch, are laser engraved with “Second Life” lettering.
