A BIT OF HISTORY
Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen (b. 1913 – d. 2004) was a Danish designer who is best known for his wide collection of lighting designs, although he also designed furniture and household décor items. He started his design career in the 1950s, during which he reflected the mid-century modern style, with clear influences from the De Stijl and Bauhaus movements. From the 1960s onwards, Holm Sørensen’s style changed utterly. His designs diverged from colourful, Modernist geometricism to a rawer, Brutalist style.
Svend Aage Jensen (b. 1918 - ) was Danish designer and ceramist, and an expert in glazes. He is mainly known for his designs for Søholm Stentøj, where he worked from the age of 26, from 1944 until 1980. At Soholm, Jensen very quickly demonstrated talent for developing glazes, including the popular EJ64 'The Blue Series' glaze, 'The Series' and the 'Burgundia' series.
