GEORG JENSEN - The Making of Henning Koppel´s 1041

Client: Georg Jensen

"More than a half-century after its design, an original Henning Koppel silver treasure finally comes to life

Made by the hands of a single Georg Jensen silversmith — an unparalleled expert in Koppel’s exclusive masterpieces and the only one possessing the skill set to make this unique silver piece — the 1041 is hand-hammered from a twelve-kilo sheet of fine silver and hand-polished to a silk matte finish, a trademark of Koppel’s silver designs. The final result is weighing in at an impressive 7.7 kilos and measuring 74 cm (L) x 45 cm (W) x 24 cm (H). Every 1041 will feature a number and an imprint of Henning Koppel’s signature, alongside the Georg Jensen logo. Though Georg Jensen has a longstanding tradition for working in sterling silver, it was deemed necessary to use fine silver (which has a purity of 99.9%) for this new endeavour. This even more premium version of the precious metal has a softer texture which is a prerequisite for achieving the correct thickness and crafting the complex curves of this breath-taking sculptural design that stands out as a piece of pure silver art."
