Cutlery - Georg Jensen
Georg Jensen was a Danish silversmith who opened his first shop in Copenhagen in 1904 and successfully achieved an international reputation as an outstanding designer of silver jewellery and homewares. His design focus was innovative and highly original at the time, with an emphasis on sleek, contemporary pieces rather than the traditional silverware designs. He continued his innovation by introducing steel to fashion high quality cutlery and homewares. The popularity of his designs grew rapidly and he expanded his business internationally throughout Europe, by the time he died in 1935 he had branches all over the world. Today the Georg Jensen brand lives on and continues to produce the highest quality lifestyle products with a timeless aesthetic concentrating on beautiful flowing forms as well as functionality.
