Henning Koppel, the world-famous Danish designer of the BUBI lamp, was first and foremost an artist. He was trained in drawing and sculpture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and the Academie Rancon in Paris, but began designing silverworks for Georg Jensen in 1945. Koppel innovated the Danish silver tradition and made Georg Jensen a leader in modern Scandinavian design. With his flowing and organic jewellery designs and sculptural silverwork, Koppel was a master of design. Perhaps the most famous exponent of his talent is his Silver Fish Platter from 1954. The elegant lines of the platter have made it one of his best-known works. Today the platter is produced only by special order and the price is around one million Danish kroner. Koppel also designed porcelain pieces, clocks, glass, furniture and lamps for various highly renowned companies.
