HK Bonbonniere Turnip

By Georg Jensen


  • Description

    Bonbonniers are amongst some of Georg Jensen's most popular items - both as gifts to our loved ones, but also for ourselves to use as safe keeping for those treasured items. The new beautiful bonbonniers are inspired by the designs from one of Georg Jensen's most popular designers, namely Henning Koppel's series of silver bonbonniers from the 1960's.
    The bonbonniers were originally envisioned in dark wood and silver, but by mixing the cool stainless steel and the warm oak Henning Koppel's timeless design is brought to life in a gorgeous modern look. The two bonbonniers are perfect as safe keeping for our precious items jewellery, little bits and pieces or even sweets. Elegant, timeless, modern Danish design.

    Henning Koppel

    Henning Koppel (1918-1981) was an artist of many talents: sculptor, silversmith, painter, draughtsman and a wonderful designer. Having opted out of High School before his finals in 1937 he was admitted to The Academy of Fine Arts, sculptors' course. He was married in 1941. The family fled to Stockholm in October 1943 during WWII. There he mostly worked as a draughtsman painting watercolours of shop fronts that he could sell to the owners. It was in Stockholm that he met Anders Hostrup-Pedersen, the new manager of Georg Jensen. He saw the gifted artist in Koppel's work and expessed his wish to meet him when the war would be over. So they met again in 1946 in Copenhagen, and this meeting proved the start of Henning Koppel's long career with Georg Jensen. His productivity was enormous: Hollowware, jewelry, cutlery in both silver as well as steel. China for Bing & Grøndahl and glass for Orrefors. At the new factory of Georg Jensen's in Hjørring copper pots and pans were made with inside silver coating. He designed his first clock which was produced at Louis Poulsen. Later more clocks and a weather station were added, produced by Georg Jensen. The weather station, introduced in 1980, became a great success.
