Danish Royal Porcelain 1775-2000 - 225 Years of Design
Modern – Minimalism
sculptor Henning Koppel's rounded, warm, organic forms became
internationally synonymous with 'Danish Modern' in the 1950s:
the gentle sculptural design that expresses luxury
whilst remaining simple and functional.
Towards the mid 1960s, the mode of expression changed to a
more architecturally inspired functionalism.
With the items' function as the point of departure, the
ceramist Erik Magnussen and the architect Grethe Meyer
designed services, which were completely stackable and
standardized in all the components. The ceramist Bodil
Manz succeeded in transferring the vibrant beauty from the
unica into industrial production of the dinner service
Modern' expressed within the field of applied art the ideals
of Denmark as a welfare society.
