Henning Koppel (1918-1981) – one of Denmark’s most celebrated designers. Originally a stone sculptor, he joined Georg Jensen in 1945 and quickly adapted to the more pliable medium. He won the Lunning Prize in 1953 and gold medals at the Milan Triennale in 1951, 1954 and 1957. During his career, he designed lights for Louis Poulsen, glass for Kastrup and Orrefors along with porcelain pieces for Bing & Grøndahl and furniture for Kvetny & Sonner.
The feminine, sculptural shape makes it a perfectly practical water pitcher. Koppel’s work is flowing, with minimal lines, summing up a complex form.
What makes it special
It is said that each silver pitcher is hand-beaten, with the handle alone requiring 15 metres of silver thread and 200 hours to produce the fi nished article.
