2022: Denmark's most imaginative frame, Conch by Arje Griegst for Royal Copenhagen

A complete coffee frame and dinner frame, designed by the Danish jeweler and artist Arje Griegst, who can still impress far and wide today with even the most enriched porcelain collector. Read more about Arje Griegst's imaginative works.

Denmark's imaginative designer, Arje Griegst

Arje Griegst was a Danish jeweler, sculptor and designer who became particularly known for his jewelery work in his own name, and later the works he designed for names such as Royal Copenhagen, Holmegaard and Georg Jensen.

When he had completed his education at Just Andersen, Arje Griegst opened his own workshop, where he got rid of the then style, which was more stringent. He stood out with his personal works that changed by the very simple design language. He used gemstones, pearls and gold in combinations and quantities that made the jewelry sumptuous. Most people will probably look at his creations as beautiful works of art. His design knows no bounds.

The inspiration he found from different places. The galaxies and the starry sky, Ancient Greece, and then there was nature in particular. If you move between his works, it is clear to see how organic forms and soft lines give associations to the places he found inspiring. The conch frame draws direct parallels to the ocean waves and conchs. Another source of inspiration was the pompous and detailed style of the Baroque period. The sumptuous decoration from that time is evident in Arje Griegst's design. Nothing is left to chance. The way Arje Griegst places the gemstones and pearls in his jewelry is similar to random additions, but each addition of a single gemstone and pearl is thoughtfully put in combination with several, so despite the number, there is harmony in his jewelry. With a neat craft, Arje Griegst created his collections, and it is known that Cire Perdue was a technique he used to create his sculptures.

In this way, Arje Griegst worked towards the organic forms that are particularly characteristic of his design, which has a fluid structure. Arje Griegst managed to create impressive works in his time. Among other things, he designed the glass series for Holmegaard called Xanadu (1977), and then the story goes that Arje Griegst got his hands free when he for H.M. Queen Margrethe II designed a tiara (1977). Later he made, among other things, a conch fountain for Tivoli (1989), designed the cutlery Spira for Georg Jensen (2002) and created chandeliers for Designmuseum Danmarks in their party hall (2006).

Konkyliestellet for Royal Copenhagen

In 1978, Arje Griegst designed the Konkyliestellet for Royal Copenhagen, which was produced until the 1990s, when production stopped. The design consists of a coffee / tea and dinner set, which is probably the most imaginative set launched for Royal Copenhagen. The frame was originally made with pink colored glaze, by mixing gold in. An expensive pleasure and Royal Copenhagen chose to switch to white glaze.

A complete frame or just a single sugar bowl from the beautiful Conch Frame can be hard to get your fingers in, but is all worth the wait. You need to arm yourself with patience if you want the frame left at home. A limited number have been made and it is only rarely put up for sale at auctions or you may be lucky to find it at a private seller. Often it is a single part from the frame that is put on, and rarely a complete frame.The price has risen in recent years, which must probably be attributed to the son's work to bring his father's works to life after his death. This has attracted attention to Arje Grieg's jewelery universe and pushed his name out new faces. Arje Griegst's design is today continued by his son Noam Griegst. The whimsical and yet accomplished jewelry in gold and colorful gemstones has been given a new era. Trained as a photographer, aesthetics is a natural part of Noam Griegst's work.

Although Arje Griegst designed Konkylie as a complete frame for Royal Copenhagen, today it is mostly sold in individual parts. If you are lucky enough to get the sugar bowl or a plate home, it is of course difficult to cover up for guests, but it may not do much. You can instead use the sugar bowl as storage for jewelry or the plate as a small dish for serving. Let it have a natural place in everyday life and let it be usable.
