Georg Jensen goes back to future for Archive range

Brand brings jewels from 1960s an 1970s up-to-date for 2013 market.

Georg Jensen has gone digging through past designs to create its latest retro-inspired range, Archive, which places designs dating back more than 40 years before a new audience.

The brand has searched through old designs, photographs and catalogues to create the range, which comprises never-before-made silver pieces from the 1960s and 1970s.

The Archive range includes a wraparound bangle designed by Ibe Dahlquist, as well as organic bracelets set with agates and carnelians by Vivianna Torun Bülow-Hübe. A silver necklace by Astrid Fog is a stand-out design in the collection, wrapping around the back of the neck with a cascade of droplets that tumble from each end at the front, towards the wearer’s chest.

The new range was born from Georg Jensen‘s archive of more than 1,200 individual jewellery designs, 15,000 drawings, prototypes, photographs and catalogues.

The collection, which launched this month, will only be made to order and will be available through selected flagship Georg Jensen stores.
