Think of some of your favorite ranges from Georg Jensen and I’ll put money on it that they include pieces designed by Vivianna Torun Bülow-Hübe (1927 – 2004).
Swedish born Torun was already a well-established and respected jewellery designer before she joined Georg Jensen in the 1960’s. As well as receiving awards and staging worldwide exhibits of her work over the years, she attracted many iconic admirers such as Picasso and Nina Simone.
You can see clear links from her own pieces (drawing from a love of the natural world) to her designs for Jensen. This is most evident in the Dewdrop collection in which pebbles have been exchanged for rose quartz and black diamonds; also, the silver and gold lines have been refined to create the sleek Jensen style we all love.
Torun created some of the most iconic of Jensen ranges such as the Vivianna bangle watch and the best-selling Torun Bangle.
Jensen continued to work with some of the world’s best designers. What’s remarkable, I think, is that you can take any of their designs from the past 120 years and see that they are always timeless, stylish and have never compromised on quality or design. Of course, this is why it’s one of our favourite collections.
