Georg Jensen is perhaps the most well-established design house in a long row of Danish designers. The silversmith, who set up the global company, started out in a humble little workshop in Copenhagen in 1904 and saw his wares become craved across the world over the following decades. To celebrate his 150th birthday, one of Denmark’s best-loved castles, Koldinghus, is hosting the world’s largest ever exhibition of Georg Jensen silverware. Koldinghus has had a long and dramatic history. Built in 1268 on the strategically important border between Denmark and Schleswig, now part of Denmark, Koldinghus has been the seat of monarchs and the backdrop to important international events, most famously as the makeshift home to a troop of freezing Spanish soldiers during the Napoleonic wars.
