“Do not follow fashion, but be guided by the present.”
1866 – 1935
Growing up in Raadvad near Copenhagen, Jensen was inspired by his picturesque surroundings and followed the path of becoming an artist. He was known for being a sculptor and ceramist, but he found worldwide recognition with his exceptional talent as a silver smith. He established his silver smithy in Copenhagen in 1904 aged 37, and his artistic sense of form has come to define the era of 20th century Scandinavian design.
Jensen’s unique style included sculptural elements, the use of flora and fauna, oxidisation of silver, incorporation of gemstones and a hammered, textured quality to the surface of silver. He was also keen to collaborate with creative designers from outside of his own smithy, something which has continued within the brand to current day.
Design collaborators include greats such as Henning Koppel, Arne Jacobsen and Vivianna Torun Bülow-Hübe to name a few.
