Bonbonniere by Henning Koppel for Georg Jensen - Oak

Availability: In stock

Product Description

Combining beauty with function, designer Henning Koppel spent his career creating objects that were striking in form and practical in use. One such item was the oak bonbonnière. Designed in the 1960s, the acorn-shaped holder was never produced commercially. Instead, Koppel gifted one of the two he crafted to friend and master upholsterer Ivan Schlechter, keeping the other for himself. Now awakened from its slumber in Georg Jensen’s archives, Living Georg Jensen revives the beautiful acorn design in smooth oak.

About Henning Koppel

Henning Koppel is responsible for what we have come to think of as “Danish design". Henning Koppel’s designs broke new ground for Georg Jensen with expansive and beautiful shapes. His designs are constructed in clean lines and exude warmth, a true feat of expertise. Koppel’s designs tempers the strict rules of functionalism with organic, lifelike shapes. His mission was to make everyday life products beautiful as well as practical. He was trained as a sculptor and began collaborating with Georg Jensen in 1946.
During his life, he won many awards including the Milan Triennial, the International Design Award and the Lunning Prize. Accolades are important, but what means even more to us is that people still choose to wear a watch by Henning Koppel or to serve coffee from one of his pots. The integrity and appeal of his designs remain vital and undiminished.
