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.
