Lines to perfection
Porcelain factory Denmark – Lyngby Porcelæn
The porcelain factory in Denmark, Lyngby Porcelæn, was founded in 1936. The company was founded by the entrepreneurial wholesaler Holst & Knudsen, who first acquired Kjøbenhavn’s Porcellains Maleri in 1924 and then founded the factory to produce porcelain tableware, vases and other decorative art of high-quality craftsmanship. The factory closed in 1969, but managed to make a big impact on Danish design history.
Lyngby Porcelæn has always made a strong mark on the history of Danish porcelain, and always with an eye on current trends. For example, it used to be common for people to have two sets of tableware: one for everyday use and one for entertaining. Over time, however, this has changed with more and more people starting to use their smart, decorative tableware day to day. At Lyngby Porcelæn, this is reflected in a perfectionist approach to the minimalist style that fits in with today’s modern design.
In 2012, the Lyngby Porcelæn brand resumed, and in 2016 the brand was acquired by Rosendahl Design Group. We are now relaunching these iconic designs, recreating them with the greatest care and respect for Lyngby's design legacy. We have combined classic craftsmanship with advanced production techniques to embrace a DNA and a design language that is unique but still fits into most homes.
Lyngby Porcelæn– handmade design since 1936
Until the 1920s, ornamentation and decoration dominated designs. The focus was more on the decoration of the porcelain rather than the shape itself. But this changed over time, strongly influenced by the functionalist Bauhaus movement in Germany, and soon form and functionality became more important than the decoration itself.
A classic in Danish design history
With minimalist perfectionism, classic elegance and clean lines, Lyngby Porcelæn has always made a big impression in Danish design and porcelain crafts. And that’s also what makes Lyngby Porcelæn is still synonymous with modern and forward-looking craftsmanship at its finest.
Lyngby Porcelæn is the brand behind the development and reinterpretation of iconic designs, created with a fine sense of detail and great respect for the history that connects classic craftsmanship and modern advanced production techniques. All this is reflected in Lyngby Porcelæn’s DNA – a DNA that ensures our unique designs.
The Lyngby Porcelæn story – Danish design since 1936
The same year, Porcelain Factory Denmark Lyngby Porcelæn also closed, and all rights were left to the family.
Lyngby Porcelæn is classic Danish design
Ever since its foundation in 1936, the Porcelain Factory Denmark – Lyngby Porcelæn has made its unequivocal mark on the history of Danish porcelain.
With its iconic green monogram at the bottom of the products, Lyngby Porcelæn remains a classic and timeless producer of Danish design.
Lyngby Porcelæn has strong historical roots and has been known for more than 80 years for its elegant and forward-looking Danish design and simple, stylish decorative handiccrafts. Driven by a passion for new ideas that can develop and improve everyday life, Lyngby Porcelæn is motivated by tradition and innovation.
We created the world’s first thermal cup in porcelain – and we were also the first to introduce tableware that could be taken straight from the oven and placed on the dining table. We create thoughtful, elegant designs for modern living. Each product has a simple, beautiful, timeless design.
Based on these traditions, Lyngby Porcelæn still represents refined Danish design – simple, stylish, sculptural. It’s about recognising a legacy – while setting the stage for the next stories to be told.
Next steps on the journey
Since then, we have launched a wide range of new products, including Rhombe tableware, which is designed with inspiration from an old service from the archives at Porcelænsfabrikken Danmark – Lyngby Porcelæn. We thus look back at history and traditions and reinterpret and renew old classics to fit into the present. This is something we will continue to do.
