SOREN GEORG JENSEN (1917-1982)
Soren Georg Jensen, the fifth of Georg Jensen's six children, emulated his father's education. He trained as a silversmith, and later as a sculptor at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. He is primarily known for his abstract, multi-facetted sculptures, rather than for his prolific silver designs. In addition to his own designs, such as the stackable kettle-on-stand, he served as the head of design department from 1962-1974, succeeding his uncle, Harald Nielsen, and encouraging the work of Scandinavian modern designers such as Henning Koppel.
