[AD] New Bernadotte Collection Pieces – Nordic Entertaining by Georg Jensen

2nd November 2020

[AD – Bernadotte collection in paid partnership with Georg Jensen.] 

New additions have been added to Georg Jensen’s iconic Bernadotte collection for Autumn 2020 and I couldn’t love them more. 

New polished stainless steel pitcher from the Georg Jensen Bernadotte collection styled on a minimal oak shelving unit against plaster walls.

Elements of dark, smoked oak lend a warm and sophisticated appeal to these contemporary iterations inspired by the work of Swedish designer Sigvard Bernadotte (b 1907 –  d 2002). 

His original and first collection for Georg Jensen was groundbreaking in its aesthetic. Championing early Scandinavian Functionalism, the Bernadotte collection echoes bold and graphic Art Deco lines and feminine curves. Using grids as a motif across the silverware, this would be his first collaboration, launched in mid-1930s.

Lovers of simple Scandinavian design have been coveting these timeless pieces for generations, now produced in favour of a mirror polish stainless steel.

“The new additions include a stainless steel pitcher, which mirrors the collection’s existing thermal jug, as well as an elegant paper-towel holder.

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.”

The addition of a lacquered oak tray makes laid back entertaining at home easy and elegant. Grooved edging continues in the handles and the contrast of light and dark epitomises the Scandinavian home interior. I love how grown-up and refined it feels to use, elevating impromptu everyday moments.

Sweet little bowls nestled on a scaled-down version of the tray can be used for guest to help themselves to small snacks. Not that we’ve had many opportunities for guests from far-flung fields of late. But having a supply of my favourite flavour of Lakrids (Christmas Butter Cookie) pecans and coconut truffles at arm’s reach is always a comfort. 

Discover the collection at all Georg Jensen stores and online.
