Danish-born Henning Koppel (1918-1981) designed novel works in the Scandinavian modern style, for which he received international acclaim. Koppel was trained as a sculptor and did not study as a silversmith. Following the Second World War, Koppel was hired by the Jensen firm to produce new jewelry designs, which were completely abstract in form. His holloware designs for the firm were strikingly original, and his work reflects an interest in contemporary sculpture. This asymmetrical bowl was designed in 1948 and received the gold medal at the 1951 Milan Triennale. This model is in the collection of Goldsmiths' Hall, London.
