Nordic Design might appear like a diversion from what The Fine Art Society is known for and yet it is something that we have been selling for nearly one hundred years.
We have had over three thousand exhibitions in the last 141 years at 148 New Bond Street. In 1921 and in 1923 we had two selling exhibitions of the work of Georg Jensen direct from Jensen himself. Both exhibitions proved extremely popular in post war Britain with the majority of the silver being sold.
Last year we were approached by one of our clients wanting to sell their collection of Georg Jensen jewellery. So, we decided nearly 100 years on, to bring the work of Georg Jensen back to our gallery on New Bond Street along with some jewellery, silver and modern design furniture by other Nordic makers.
The exhibition includes over 140 pieces by a selection of Nordic designers to include: Nanna Ditzel (1923-2005) & Jörgen Ditzel (1921–1961), Astrid Fog (1911-1993), Bent Gabrielsen (b. 1928), Hans Hansen (1884-1940), Georg Jensen (1895 - 1966), Bent Knudsen (1924-1997), Henning Koppel (1918-1981), Rey Urban (b. 1929), Hans Jørgensen Wegner (1914-2007), Tapio Wirkkala (1915-1985) and others.
