Happy Birthday Grandpa!

To mark the 100th anniversary of the iconic designer’s birth, Georg Jensen has announced a year-long celebration in his honor. Happy Birthday, grandpa!

I just returned from a few days in Copenhagen, to celebrate my no longer living grandpa, Henning Koppel’s 100 birthday, and his timeless designs for the world famous silver house Georg Jensen. If he had been alive he would have been very proud. 

The day started out at Louisiana in northern Sealand, with the reveal of a new Koppel piece. I, unfortunately, can't show photos of it since it is still a secret for now. After the big reveal, there was a reception at my mother's house, with cake, music in the garden, and a place for the press to interview my mother and see where my grandpa had lived and worked.
