Georg Jensen My Favorite Curved Baby's Spoon, 925 Sterling Silver
- The Designer
- The Maker
Designed by Vivianna Torun Bülow-Hübe in 1989, this series of children's cutlery in sterling silver was inspired by Vivianna's early childhood in Sweden. She explains, "When I behaved well as a child, I was rewarded with something tasty to eat. Strawberries with cream, home-made ice cream or jam. Best of all I was allowed to eat with great-grandmother's christening spoon. For me it became the symbol of a happy life. It became my favorite spoon. Since then I have always felt that a spoon may be a declaration of love; from the one who loves you â?? to your hands that hold it and to your lips that embrace it. That is why I created My Favorite Spoon. I have hidden a Heart in the design as the eternal symbol of love."

Torun was philosophical about the role of design in our everyday lives:
"A piece of jewelry should be a symbol of love. It should enhance and move with the body so that it blends with you. It must not overwhelm, but enhance you. This is why it must be timeless. It shouldn't matter if you are 17 or 87 years old."
One of the most iconic watch design classics in the Georg Jensen watch collection is the Vivianna bangle watch. Torun once reflected back on her inspiration for the bangle watch:
"Then watches were only chronometers - measurers of time, which one got constantly caught out by. I wanted to free people form the slavery of time, I wanted to make a watch which reminded one that life is here and now, so I created a watch with a mirror face, no numbers and a simple second hand. A watch should not make us prisoners of time, but liberate us. Perhaps it is possible to make a timepiece which more intensely perceives the Here and Now. The watch is open ended to symbolize that time should not bind us, and the dial like a mirror reminds us that life is now."
In keeping with the Georg Jensen tradition of innovation, Vivianna Torun Bülow-Hübe set out to reinvent the very concept of time.
