Georg Jensen, the man behind this world famous jewellery brand, was a sculptor and silversmith, decades ahead of his time as both a craftsman and a businessman.
Georg was born in 1866 in the small town of Raadvaad near Copenhagen. Jensen soon found his life’s calling. In 1892 he qualified as a sculptor from the Danish Royal Academy of Fine Arts. He spent the following years travelling the world to perfect his craft.
He began by working with ceramics but turned to silver in 1904. He opened his own smithy in a small studio in Bredgade in central Copenhagen. It was here that he mastered his profession, earning wide recognition for his meticulously crafted art deco jewellery. Before long Georg had opened stores in the most fashionable cities of Europe – Berlin, Stockholm, Paris and London. By 1924 he had spread his creative wings across the Atlantic and opened the first US store in New York.
Jensen devoted himself to building his legacy; a globally recognised brand. He died at the age of 69 in 1935. Still today, his unique sense of quality and his undying spirit of craftsmanship live on and continue to define the inimitable Georg Jensen brand.
Georg Jensen – Original & Authentic Danish Design
For over a hundred years, the designers and craftsmen of the Georg Jensen studios have been designing and creating timeless art of the very highest quality. Quality craftsmanship and innovative design have for years been the watchwords of Georg Jensen. The focus of their creations has always been on lifestyle; practical, yet elegant hollowware, luxury watches, fine jewellery. Georg Jensen has always created designs displaying beauty hand-in-hand with functionality. The foundations on which Georg Jensen built his legacy back in 1904 were an eye for the aesthetic, an appreciation of the practical, along with the desire to reach out and support design talent – values which are cherished today as much as ever.
