Georg Jensen’s Alfredo collection has won a Wallpaper* Design Award. The ergonomically shaped kitchen-to-dining-room pieces by Swiss designer Alfredo Häberli have won the Best Tableware category in the prestigious awards from the magazine famous for its forward-thinking approach and appreciation of design.
The collection, which features an elongated carafe with wooden stopper and a wide-brimmed bowl in stainless steel or ceramic, stood out for its elegantly lighthearted design. ‘A hat-shaped bowl and a carafe with a spinning stopper – our favourite Swiss designer is in a playful mood,’ Wallpaper* said about the winning designs.
Founded in Denmark over a century ago, Georg Jensen now has over 100 stores in 12 countries and champions exquisite design for the home and office as well as gold, silver, platinum and diamond jewellery and watches.
Ulrik Garde Due, CEO of Georg Jensen, said of the win: ‘Getting the recognition from Wallpaper* is indeed an honour – for Alfredo Häberli, of course, and for Georg Jensen. We want to take our innovative Danish design language and our superior quality to a global audience. We want to move into other materials and to be more playful in our expression – to have fun and to enjoy the Scandinavian values.’
