Hans H. Henriksen (b. 1921) received training as an architect at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture and later operated his own design studio from 1958 to 1968. His varied career has included the creation of holloware designs for the Georg Jensen Silversmithy, glassware designs for the firms of Kastrup and Bjorkhults, and architectural designs for a number of firms including that of Finn Juhl. From 1963 onward he worked as a set designer for the Danish Broadcasting and Television Corporation.
Henriksen’s most prominent work for the Jensen Silversmithy is the designs for a sleek, highly modern set of salt-and-pepper shakers (number 1031) that was introduced in 1954.
