The Sky and Bernadotte collections from Georg Jensen have been extended now boasting a complete dinnerware ensemble that include plating, serving dishes, and glasses.
Originally a series of bar accessories which debuted in 2018, Sky â€“ designed by the French-born, Copenhagen based designer AurÃ©lien Barbry â€“ Sky now includes two new categories, with the addition of dinner and glassware. A series of porcelain plates, bowls, and serving dishes reinforce the soft lines and minimalist design language of the Sky collection, while a slightly asymmetrical base lends these new items an original silhouette, inspired by the organic, dynamic shape of clouds. The line extension will also include crystal wine glasses and two sizes of tumblers, with a delicate, rounded form that feels both understated and sophisticated. Though informal enough for everyday use, this elegant collection can also be used for more formal occasions, and the new elements are particularly striking when contrasted with the stainless-steel components from the lineâ€™s original cocktail series.
Meanwhile, the Bernadotte collectionâ€”a contemporary series inspired by the work of the inimitable Swedish designer, Sigvard Bernadotte (1907-2002), who was one of Georg Jensenâ€™s earliest collaboratorsâ€”will also reveal an expanded offering for the table this spring. The new additions include porcelain plating, serving dishes and a mug, as well as crystal glassware featuring wine glasses as well as low and high tumblers. Playing on the iconic grooves that were central to Bernadotteâ€™s Art Deco-inspired designs, the dinner plating features a neatly grooved perimeter, while the bowls reveal a wider, scalloped edge â€“ when used together they create a cool, contrasting look that feels fresh, fun, and decidedly modern. Both the stemmed wineglasses and the tumblers feature an undulating pattern that creates a soft, wave-like effect, while the porcelain mug repeats the more stringent exterior groove pattern to match the plating additions. With its varied textures, these new pieces provide for endless styling options.
The bold simplicity of Bernadotteâ€™s silver designs found instant success when they debuted back in the 1930s, and they have remained strong favourites across the decades. In 2002 Georg Jensen reissued many of Bernadotteâ€™s designs in stainless steel, making them accessible to a new generation of customers. We are now building upon this tradition, as Bernadotteâ€™s original designs continue to inspire new products for today.
