Jørgen Gammelgaard

Jørgen Gammelgaard’s award-winning work with furniture reflects his simple, refined approach to design and refreshing take on minimalism. His other most notable designs range from various lamp collections to silverware for Georg Jensen.

Jørgen Gammelgaard belongs to a generation of highly-skilled designers who all learned their craft in the time-honoured Danish tradition of apprenticeships.

Originally trained as a cabinetmaker with the well-known master Copenhagen carpenter AJ Iversen, Jørgen Gammelgaard worked under the wing of Grete Jalk. After studying furniture design under Poul Kjærholm at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, he went on to work at Arne Jacobsen’s studio in the late 1960s
