Bold, delicate, classic, current…Extra leaves room for interpretation Danish designer Lina Christensen unveiled the original Extra bangle in 2000. It won attention right away for its easy, sparkly femininity. For Spring 2010, she is expanding the collection with three new bangles. How you wear Extra comes down to your preference–the bangles are available in three different widths of sterling silver. Layer as many as you’d like or choose a single bracelet for a subtler look. John Galliano, one of haute couture’s most famous iconoclasts, has cited the bold, sculptural lines of Extra as an inspiration.
With a history that spans more than 100 years, the Georg Jensen brand represents quality craftsmanship and timeless aesthetic design, producing lifestyle products ranging from hollowware to watches, jewellery and home products.
The philosophy of Georg Jensen himself was to create democratic designs possessing both functionality and beauty. His artisanal skill and artistic talent combined with his continuous ability to identify and support design talent was the foundation on which he built Georg Jensen in Copenhagen in 1904.
Georg Jensen’s style embraced the Art Nouveau lines of the day but injected them with a distinctive vigour that continues to resonate today. Serene flowing forms are enriched by exquisitely sculpted ornamentation and his stylised bouquets of flowers and lush bunches of grapes reflect his sensual delight in nature. Our most important task is to leverage the ideas and principles of the master himself and translate these into the design of the present day.
The Georg Jensen brand is based on a number of shared values such as integrity, authenticity and Danish design. All resonating the Scandinavian values - the simplicity of life, the Nordic light, clean water and fresh air – and all capsulised in the Georg Jensen Vision, Mission and Values. Respecting our DNA and our values it is both our obligation and our opportunity to run a profitable business providing products relevant to the consumer of today.
