Locuind de mult timp in Norvegia nu aveam cum sa nu vin in contact cu ceea ce inseamna cultura norvegiana, in particular si cu cea scandinava in general. Cultura scandinava este una speciala, deosebita si unica. In tot ce au, tot ce fac si tot ce sunt se gaseste o puternica influenta a naturii. O natura pura, curata, speciala si spectaculoasa: apa, muntele, lumina, florile, aurora boreala, aerul curat, frigul, soarele, etc.

Tot ceea e legat de cultura scandinava o regasesc cu usurinta in produsele Georg Jensen. Produse sale sunt de o eleganta, frumusete, finete, rafinament, delicatete si spectaculozitate asa cum nu am mai intalnit. Cred ca este imposibil sa locuiesti in oricare din tarile scandinave si sa nu vii in contact cu ele, sa nu le remarci, sa nu le admiri si sa nu le doresti. Sunt genul de produse atat de fine incat si simpla atingere a lor iti lasa amprentele pe ele, si parca le-ai stricat frumusetea. E greu de stiut daca amprentele degetelor tale raman pe produse sau amprenta furmusetii lor ti se lipeste de suflet…

Danezul Georg Jensen si-a inceput afacerea in 1904 in Copenhaga producand obiecte din argint deosebit de elegante si practice. In prezent Georg Jensen produce bijuterii, ceasuri, tacamuri, obiecte decorative si de uz casnic, diferite colectii si cadouri de sezon (Craciun, Paste, ziua mamei, nunta, etc), diverse produse de argint.

Vineri am cumparat si eu primul meu produs de la Georg Jensen, e vorba despre aceste superbe suporturi de lumanare din colectia Cobra (designer Constantin Wortmann). Adevarul e ca eu la vad mai mult ca si pe niste gaturi elegante de lebada… Sunt sigura ca de acum incolo vor urma si alte produse de la Georg Jensen, pentru ca mi-a intrat microbul frumusetii lor in sange :). Suporturile de lumanare imi plac enorm: sunt finute si delicate, dar si foarte grele ceea ce le confera o mare stabilitate; sunt extraordinar de placute la atingere si fara defecte, o linie simpla de sus pana jos; sunt de 3 marimit diferite si se pot aranja in foarte multe variante.

Concluzie: Georg Jensen = Produse de o adevarata eleganta, functionalitate, frumusete si calitate ridicata. O adevarata colectie de arta luxoasa! Si sunt asa de bucuroasa, fericita si norocoasa sa am o bucatica din frumusetea asta la mine in sufragerie…

Having lived for a long time now in Norway, I was always in contact with what the Norwegian culture is about, in particular and the Scandinavian one in general. The Scandinavian culture is a special, remarkable and unique. There is a strong influence of nature in everything they are, have or do. A pure nature, clean special and spectacular: the water, the mountain, the light, the flowers, the aurora borealis, the fresh air, the cold, the sun, etc.

Everything that is connected to the Scandinavian culture is easily found in the products of Georg Jensen. The products have an unmet elegance, beauty, finesse, refinement, delicacy and spectacular qualities. I guess it is impossible to live in any of the Scandinavian countries and not get in contact with them, remark them, admire them and want them. They are the kind of products that are so fine that a simple touch leaves your fingerprints on them, and look like you almost spoiled their beauty. It is hard to know if it is your fingerprints that come on the products or if it is their beauty that sticks to your soul…

The Danish Georg Jensen started his business in 1904 in Copenhagen by producing silver objects of special elegance and practicality. Presently, Georg Jensen produces jewellery, watches, eating utensils, decorations and household products, different collections and seasonal presents (Christmas, Easter, Mother’s day, wedding, etc.) and different other silver products.

On Friday I bought my first Georg Jensen product, it is a a beautiful set of candle holders from the Cobra collection (designer Constantin Wortmann). The truth is that I see them more like some elegant swan necks… I am sure that from now on, other Georg Jensen will follow, because I got infected with their beauty :). I like these candle holders a lot: they are fine and delicate, but also very heavy, which gives them a great stability; they are incredibly nice to touch and flawless, a simple line from up to down; they have three different shapes and can be placed and arranged in many different ways.

Conclusions: Georg Jensen = Products of true elegance, functionality, beauty, and high quality. A true collection of luxury art! And I am so glad, happy and lucky to have a piece of that beauty in my living-room…
