|After many years of working with some of the world’s most innovative design firms in Milan, New York and London, Helle Damkjær has been living with her family in Paris since 1997.|
She has a studio there and works as a graphic artist, producer and designer. Her style is elegant and sharp, yet soft and harmonious. Her minimalist, organic approach, combined with her attention to detail, gives her designs a harmonious presence. She calls her designs "environmentally aware harmony."
Damkjær is in some ways the heiress to the Danish design legacy: her minimalist functionality coincides with beautiful shapes for an overall effect that is–across the board–gorgeous. Like her minimalist predecessors, Damkjaeir has an exceptional sense for shapes and colours and is particularly sensitive to their effect on the beholder.
Damkjær achieves the maximum effect with the most modest resources. The subjects of her beautiful, round shapes can also be found in the creation of the BLOOM bowl for Georg Jensen. The natural, straightforward design of the bowl combines function and beauty. The round shape and the inner harmony of these items are reflected in people’s everyday lives and, according to Helle Damkjær, they actually simplify everyday life.
The Georg Jensen BLOOM bowl is on display at MoMA, the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
Helle Damkjær has designed a range of products for Georg Jensen including Bloom tea light and candlestick as well as the FORMA cheese concept.
When it comes to the first name in functional, beautiful innovation, Helle Damkjær is an outstanding example of today’s best design.
