Generation to generation...


Pure lines, simple forms, contrasts of light and dark.


A unique, pure and classic form language developed by Jacob Jensen


and refined by his son, Timothy Jacob Jensen.

Jacob Jensen founded his studio in 1958 and over the following decades developed the form language that changed our view of how hi-fi systems, telephones, watches and many other products can look. The contribution made him one of the most recognised designers with a vast number of prizes and exhibitions, including a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. In terms of design history, he gained importance because his ground breaking form unites two main streams of 20th century design. On the one hand, the European Bauhaus tradition with its minimalist “Less is more” and its modernist “Form follows function”. On the other hand, the American design icon Raymond Loewy’s consumer-oriented MAYAprinciple: “Most Advanced Yet Acceptable”. Jacob Jensen’s international style comprises of the fact that he creates an ultra-modern minimalist form language with a very high audience appeal.


Since the generation change in 1990, Timothy Jacob Jensen established the JACOB JENSEN trademark and clarified the universal potential of the form language by expanding it into many new product areas. In addition to watches and telephones, other JACOB JENSEN products include eyewear, timers, weather stations, smoke alarms and entire kitchens. This contribution, which may be understood as a far reaching creative challenge of the form language, has kept the studio at a high, internationally award-winning level. Through their common form language, Jacob Jensen and Timothy Jacob Jensen prove that the mass produced products which surround our daily life, can be sympathetic towards us. They can stand in our living rooms, kitchens and bathrooms and communicate a wealth of ideas, humour, elegance and pleasure in use. They can be gifts of quiet and simplicity. They can be a pleasure to use and live with on a daily basis.


Since 1966, the Jacob Jensen Design studio


has been located at an isolated spot of scenic beauty with a panoramic view of the Limfjord in Northern Jutland, Denmark.

The serenity of the Jensen form language is not due to the fjord alone.


It is a well thought-out whole, comprising of distance, closeness and use.


Distance: A simple, streamlined and ultramodern form combined with contrasts of light and dark. It is the part of the form language which is primarily associated with Jacob Jensen, so homogenous that people all over the world recognise a Jacob Jensen design from a distance.

Closeness: Aesthetically thought-out details, both in the design of the three-dimensional and the graphic elements. Especially the attention to detail allows Jacob Jensenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quality-consciousness and roots in Danish design tradition to shine through.

Use: User-friendliness in a simple and clear form, but not only that; many products feature surprising ideas which appear when they are touched. A point may begin to pulsate, a door may open in meditative slow motion, an unexpected interface may appear. There is a seductive gift included.

A Korean customer once said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;you work holiday placeâ&#x20AC;?. That is true. The surroundings of the studio are tremendously


beautiful and many people feel that the distant horizon and simple contrasts of the fjord are directly perceived in the design.


The JACOB JENSEN brand is now represented in over 30 countries.


With its pure contrasts, simple effects and serene user interface, JACOB JENSENâ&#x201E;˘ is a language pointing far into the future.


â&#x20AC;?If ever there were a scenario whereby we were only allowed to live with the portfolio of one designer in our home,


Jacob Jensen would be our choice, hands down.â&#x20AC;?
