Jeweler Jorgen Jensen was renowned Danish Jeweler Georg Jensen's second son and also a silversmith. He trained with the German goldsmith Leonhard Ebert, and studied at the City School of Arts and Crafts in Munich. He then trained at the Georg Jensen silversmithy, and was a member of the company from 1917 to 1923.
There after, until 1936 he owned his own workshop in Stockholm but rejoined Georg Jensen in 1936 and worked as a silversmith there until 1962. During this time, he created this most famous design, an Art Deco functionalist style.
