MASTERPIECES Design 1086 Centrepiece

MASTERPIECES–a modern interpretation of an original silver hollowware design

MASTERPIECES is a contemporary take on a Søren Georg Jensen piece first created in 1960

Georg Jensen began as a silversmith workshop. The MASTERPIECES collection pays tribute to this legacy but updates the style and material to give it a current edge. When it was introduced in 1960, the centrepiece won the prestigious gold medal at the XII Triennale in Milan.

The structure of the centrepiece is in many ways an iconic example of clean-lined Danish design of the post-World War II era. As part of your table setting, it is a bold piece that is sure to become a cherished part of your family’s story.

An essential part of the story of Scandinavian design.

Design Year: 2007

Materials: Polished stainless steel

Designer: Søren Georg Jensen

Søren Georg Jensen, son of the company’s founder, Georg Jensen, was a successful sculptor and silversmith, who created many iconic works, including sculptures that were installed on the streets of Copenhagen. Søren Georg Jensen sought inspiration in post-war functionalism, where design was confined within strict, often geometrical lines. His contemporaries included leading Danish architects and sculptors such as Arne Jacobsen and Henning Koppel. From 1962 to 1974 he was Artistic Director at Georg Jensen, where he passed on his father’s artistic genius, vision and philosophy to a new generation of artists.

There is a strong element of family in Georg Jensen. Whether literal family, such as in this case, or in the sense of building long-lasting, nurturing relationships with artists or in the sense of creating timeless heirloom pieces that can be passed down through your family, from one generation to the next.
