Georg Jensen (1866-1935) was a Danish silversmith and designer who achieved international prominence for his commercial application of modern metal design. The simple elegance and fine craftsmanship of his work is recognized around the world.
Henning Koppel (1918-1981) developed what we think of as “Danish design." He studied sculpture at the Royal Danish Academy and in Paris. He began collaborating with Georg Jensen in 1946, going on to win many awards including the Milan Triennial, the International Design Award, and the Lunning Prize.
