  • Description

    Holder for Henning Koppel items.

    Henning Koppel was one of the most prolific and influential Georg Jensen collaborators. During a career that spanned five decades, he was responsible for creating much of what we have come to think of as Danish design.

    In keeping with his reputation as the father of functionalism, Koppel created a number of clocks and weather stations whose sleek shapes were perfect for indoor or outdoor use. The new holder can be used with any of the 10cm items and is an easy way to bring Koppel's signature style to any shelf, desk or table top.

    The holder lets you display Henning Koppel's clocks, barometers, hygrometers and thermometers on any surface.

    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.
