Industrial Designer Marc Newson recently collaborated with Georg Jensen, and designed a tea service in silver marking a 25 year relationship between the Danish label. The 5 piece set sees Newson explore his multitude of design and crafting skills in their timeless aesthetic, which is synonymous with the Georg Jensen’s pieces.
There are only 10 editions of the five-piece set available, each of which costs £82,000 and will be made to order in the company’s Copenhagen workshop.
Consisting of a teapot, coffee pot, creamer, sugar bowl and tray, the collection takes organic shapes with subtle natural features with a borderline sculptural aesthetic
The teapot, coffee pot and creamer’s handles are made from responsibly sourced mammoth which feature in an ergonomic design. Other special details include woven edges and carefully crafted bases made from natural rattan.
Offered in a limited edition of 10 pieces, each series requires over three months of hammering required to achieve their final finish.
This is London-based Newson’s first partnership with the 111-year-old brand is the result of a six-month-long design and engineering process that gathered craftsmanship and rapid 3D prototyping.
The exclusive series will be presented during the Beijing Design Week 2015 at a special site curated by the Beijing Center for the Arts (BCA) and Georg Jensen.
