    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.
