Aurélien Barbry explained: “Design is the practice in which the simplest things of everyday life are considered to be changed. I wanted to make things simpler and move the obviousness of their function in order to create a dialogue with the end user. The re-use of everyday forms, simple and accurate.”
This architectural approach is also recognizable in the Barbry Collection, which has been designed by the French for Georg Jensen. The inclusion of the essential parts in design is typical for Scandinavian creations, and it suits the image of Aurélien Barbry’s basement in Copenhagen.
The kitchen utensils of the Barbry Collection are clearly inspired by the Nordic design tradition of Georg Jensen. Here are sculptural forms with uncompromising functions. Made out of the best materials: Massive oak wood and stainless steel. This means that the Barbry Collection by Georg Jensen embodies New Nordic-kitchens, porting the Scandinavian values such as handicraft arts, quality and aesthetics into modern times.
The essential pieces of the Georg Jensen Barbry Collection complete this approach perfectly. Three knives, one cooking spoon and spatula, one tray, one chopping board and salt and pepper shakers were re-interpreted by Aurélien Barbry in order to bring clear aesthetics of Danish design into modernity.
