  • Catalogue Essay

    Trained at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art, Johan Rohde was an artist whose wide ranging interests included architecture, painting, and graphic design. Rohde joined silversmith Georg Jensen’s workshop in 1906, shortly after it opened at 36 Bredgade in Copenhagen. Prior to his work for Jensen, Rohde designed restrained furniture for special commissions. The scrolling side rails of the present console are reminiscent of the foliate finials surmounting Rohde’s famous ‘Acorn’ pattern flatware, designed for Jensen in 1915.
