Helle Damkjaer designed BLOOM stainless bowl ICONIC LIFE CRAVES

Georg Jensen

The popular BLOOM Mirror polished stainless steel bowl takes its inspiration from cherry blossoms in full bloom.

The delicate and soft contours of the flowers informed the designer Helle Damkjær as she created a now classic bowl, that is perfectly suited for presenting delicious fruits. The BLOOM bowl can easily be used as a decorative element in itself, on your table or a shelf. The BLOOM bowl is produced in mirror polished stainless steel.

The BLOOM bowl was designed for ICONIC silversmith Georg Jensen, whose philosophy is to create innovative designs that are both beautiful and functional. Georg Jensen grew up close to forest and lakes just north of Copenhagen. Nature was his core source of inspiration. Symbols of the natural world weave a common thread throughout his designs: fruits, blossoms, leaves and organic shapes.

The BLOOM bowl was designed for ICONIC silversmith Georg Jensen, whose philosophy is to create innovative designs that are both beautiful and functional.

His other artistic skills combined with his continuous ability to identify and support design talent was the foundation upon which he founded Georg Jensen in Copenhagen in 1904. He was known for modern design. “Do not follow fashion, but be guided by the present.”

When the 37-year-old Georg Jensen, with both an apprenticeship as goldsmith and sculptor behind him, made silver his way of living by establishing his silversmith shop in Copenhagen in 1904, it was with the fine craftsman’s understanding and appreciation of the material combined with the accomplished artist’s sense of form.

Through his childhood in Copenhagen, Georg Jensen was inspired to become an artist. He succeeded in becoming both sculptor and ceramist, but it was through his talent as a silver smith that he achieved the most remarkable recognition. The Georg Jensen silversmith shop created some of the most original and epoch-defining jewelry, hollowware and cutlery patterns.

When Jensen’s passed in 1935 the shop was acknowledged as one of the most important silversmith shops in the world. Georg Jensen was instrumental in defining the character of the 20th Century Scandinavian Design by drawing on Danish traditions and infusing them with a progressive design rationale.
