Georg Jensen Bernadotte Paper Towel Holder
Paper Towel Holder - Design Inspired By Sigvard Bernadotte
Just because something is functional, it doesn’t mean it can’t be beautiful! Elevate your everyday with this stainless steel kitchen roll holder that adds something special to a basic household item. Using the signature grooved detail that featured on many Georg Jensen Art Deco pieces, the holder has a handle (just the right size so the roll can go easily over it) and a heavy base with a rubber pad for extra grip, creating a perfect balance between practicality and style.
Swedish royal prince Sigvard Bernadotte was one of Georg Jensen’s first design partners. Strongly influenced by the functionalist movement of the 1930s, Bernadotte’s work is characterised by elegant lines, minimalist decoration, and absolute practicality. His influence continues to the present day with new products bearing his distinctive style. The paper towel holder is beautifully crafted from stainless steel with a mirror polished finish.rd Bernadotte

Prince Sigvard Bernadotte (1907-2002) was trained at the Kungliga Konstakademien in Stockholm in 1929. The following year he saw the Stockholm exhibition of Gunnar Asplund, which marked the breakthrough of functionalism. This influenced Bernadotte’s own style and he incorporated the ideals of functional elegance into his design thenceforth. Shortly afterwards, Prince Sigvard Bernadotte and Georg Jensen began a long and fruitful cooperation, in which the new functionalism was at the centre of a more modern interpretation of the work of silver. The prince’s long affiliation with Georg Jensen represents another chapter in the rich history of Scandinavian design. His Bernadotte collection has been and continues to be a favourite for generations.
