Koppel wall clock, White

By Georg Jensen


  • Description

    From luxury watches and chronographs to wall clocks and weather stations, Henning Koppel's signature horological style has been instrumental in helping us keep track of time and, indeed, make the most of it. For autumn 2014, Georg Jensen has invited the creative minds from the All The Way To Paris design agency to create a new look for Koppel's beloved designs. Inspired by patterns and colourways found in Georg Jensen's vast archive, they have created three new designs for the popular and practical wall clock.
    Profiling a contemporary look befitting modern sensibilities, Koppel's iconic clock has been revitalised with muted colours and graphic prints. The clean, elegant form is offered in three
    colour versions that feature dark blue petroleum, grey and copper hands. A blue face with black hands references a Scandinavian mood, seen in the light depicted by Skagen's famous painters. A modern graphic harlequin print dial with dark grey hands illustrates the forward-thinking spirit of Georg Jensen; and a milky white design offset by sleek grey-hued hands provides a light and modern alternative to the traditional black design.
    A fusion of past and present, the posthumous Koppel collaboration exemplifies Georg Jensen's commitment to creativity, craftsmanship and courage to forge new paths in collaborative works.

    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.
