Georg Jensen: Scandinavian Design for Living


From June 22 through September 9, 2018, the Art Institute of Chicago presents an exhibition on renowned design company Georg Jensen and its contributions to changing ideals for modern living across the 20th century. Known for its singular approach to materials and craftsmanship, Georg Jensen silver tableware and objects for the home kept pace with the era’s shifting culture and lifestyles, balancing design and function in its diverse product lines. With its dual embrace of exceptional and everyday objects, the firm appealed to a wide range of customers and contributed to the meteoric rise of Scandinavian design in the United States and around the world. Presenting over 100 spectacular and rare works in silver, this exhibition celebrates the company’s evolving vision for the modern home, which came to include inventive and accessible designs for flatware and serving dishes in stainless steel, wood, and melamine.
