ad – in collaboration with Georg Jensen for the Bernadotte collection.
Autumn 2020 sees new additions to the Bernadotte collection for Georg Jensen. A contemporary series inspired by the work of the Swedish designer, Sigvard Bernadotte (1907- 2002).
From the very beginning of Bernadotte’s collaboration with Georg Jensen the designs were representative of their time. This collection beautifully captures the soft curves and femininity of the Art Deco period together with the straight lines and functionality of early Scandinavian Functionalism.

“The new additions include a stainless steel pitcher, which mirrors the collection’s existing thermal jug, as well as an elegant paper-towel holder. Available in two sizes. Infusing a striking new material combination into the line. Three of the new products combine stainless steel with a dark, smoked oak, creating a strong and sophisticated contrast. These dynamic new pieces include a lacquered oak serving tray with steel handles; a serving bowl set with three, small steel vessels presented on a wooden tray; and salad servers with intricately grooved, wooden handles that reinforce Georg Jensen’s unparalleled commitment to quality craftsmanship.” – Georg Jensen Press release
The natural grain of the dark wood creates a warmth that polished stainless steel sometimes needs. It feels even more precious than before.
These small bowls make me smile. They instantly bring back memories of my childhood spending time at my Mormor’s bungalow. Over the Christmas period she would put sweets, nuts and snacks in little bowls in each room. It’s such an inviting way of hosting. A sweet memory.
“Adding wood and other elements to the Bernadotte collection underscores the strength and range of Sigvard Bernadotte’s original designs for Georg Jensen,”. – Georg Jensen’s Chief Creative Office, Nicholas Manville
A beautiful addition to the Bernadotte range, the perfect pieces for the ultimate host.
