Vintage Danish glass design from the early 1970’s

Monday, September 17th, 2007

Here’s a part of my personal collection of Holmegaard / Kastrup pop-art opal-glass design. The ‘Palet’ series was designed by Michael Bang around 1970 and was mainly design for household purpose - a large variety of items was born, including everything from vases to bowls, jugs and lamps.

Per Lütken got employed at Holmegaard in 1941 without previous knowledge of glass works. During the late 1960’s and early 70’s he too began designing pop-art opal-glass items - Lütkens collection was entitled ‘Carnaby’ and only included vases, but in wonderful shapes and bright colors. The orange vase on the second row, to the right shown in the picture below is from the Carnaby collection.

Otto Bauer Designed the “bottle vases” for Holmegaard / Kastrup glas - the largest one in my collection is almost 50cm high - extremely rare and not for sale.

Here’s a true gem from the early years of Danish kitchen machinery - the mixer is fully working, complete with a Blender, meat grinder and mixer!

A mixer like this was a part of the exhibition “The industrial Icons: Danish Design” held at the Danish National Museum of Industrial Art in 2004.
