In 1999, with regret, Bent Georg Jensen had to sell the family company to an investment fund, thus becoming the last owner from the Georg Jensen family. In 2003, however, when Georg Jensen Damask once again became a family-owned company Bent Georg Jensen's contact with the company was renewed, and he even picked up the pencil again to design additional Georg Jensen Damask designs, with TRIPP bed linen
from 2011 as his final contribution.
Another lasting legacy is Georg Jensen Damask's close ties to weavers, architects and designers. Under Bent Georg Jensen's both gentle and firm gaze, a wide range of beautiful damask designs took form, all based on the traditional craft, and even if he generally took the lead in this collaboration in order to secure the design legacy, he also considered it a virtue to highlight the creative minds behind the design.
From his own mind sprang a large number of designs, which light up the shelves of the design archive. Like the classic bed linen design
NORTHERN LIGHT from 1991, which is now being revived, and which, like the KUBUS pattern is a beautiful example of a legacy design from the master's own hand that fits right into a contemporary damask collection.
