The Design of Henning Koppel

One of my favorite things to do in the summer is picnic or dine outside, and the Koppel melamine bowl is just the item to inspire one to do so. It can take your simplest salad or lowly chip to a higher level. Designed by Henning Koppel, legendary Danish silversmith and designer, whom I would say is my pick as instigator of modern Danish design. He started creating exceptionally new and modern designs back in 1946 for silver company Georg Jensen, and continued in glass and other materials for various Danish companies. These bowls were designed in the mid-60’s for Torben Ørskov, creator of Ørskov & Co., one of our favorite Scandinavian manufacturers and long time friends.
