Of all the designers to work with Georg Jensen through the years, Henning Koppel was among the most highly regarded. His designs played an important role in influencing the signature look of Georg Jensen, particularly in the second half of the 20th century. The designer had trained as a sculptor before turning his attention to jewellery, hollowware and cutlery. The silver pitcher is one of his most famous pieces and was first formed in 1952. It is spare but sensuous, with an elegantly extended handle and exaggerated lip. Georg Jensen began as a silversmith; this collection is a modern interpretation of the legacy of excellent craftsmanship that dates from the very beginning.

Henning Koppel (1918-1981) was a Danish designer and well-known as an earlier pioneer of functionalism in design. He studied drawing and aquarelle, and later on concentrated on sculpture at the Royal Danish Academy and then in Paris. Koppel came from a Jewish family and like many Danish Jews lived in Sweden during the Second World War.
While there he designed for Orrefors Glassworks, internationally renowned for their unique glass articles, art glass and household glass. When he went back to Denmark, Koppel began working at Georg Jensen, which marked his start in jewellery, hollowware and flatware design. His first works – a series of necklaces and bracelets resembling whale vertebrae and microscopic organisms – were small masterpieces in imaginative modeling. Henning Koppel was in every way groundbreaking and his jewellery was unlike anything ever created at the silver smithy in its first 40 years. During his carrier, Henning Koppel created an astonishing range of work: from stainless steel cutlery to magnificent one-off signature pieces such as the silver and crystal chandelier he designed to celebrate the 75-year anniversary of Georg Jensen in 1979. The HK pitcher and Caravel cutlery are among the most famous pieces he designed for Georg Jensen. Elegant and functional, both the pitcher and Caravel cutlery were originally produced in sterling silver, but are nowadays manufactured from stainless steel. Koppel designed also clocks and lighting for Louis Poulsen and postage stamps for the Danish Post Office. During his life, he won many awards including three Gold Medals at the Milan Triennial, the International Design Award of the American Institute of Designers and the Lunning Prize. Koppel’s works are represented in numerous museums worldwide.View all products

”I ordered a HAY side table that was on back order everywhere else. It was a few hundred crowns more at Finnish Design Shop, but shipped the next day and was delivered to my door two days later, which I think was worth the extra cost. It came well-packaged, protected and the item is in perfect condition. I’m happy and would shop here again.”
