In the heart of Scandinavia, where the northern-most tip of the Danish peninsula known as Jutland bends East and breaks the surging waters of the Kattegat and Skagerak seas, lies a small and picturesque fishing village. Its name is Skagen - the Skaw - and for connoisseurs of Northern Europe it is associated with a unique charm that is the result of the fusion of nature-given and man-made romanticism. At Skagen the elements can rage and reduce mankind to mere extras in a veritable power struggle between the sky and the sea. Here, time stands still, all sounds vanish, and nature is so compellingly beautiful that it takes your breath away. Here the perfect purity and beauty explain where Danish design found its unique qualities, and where the international company Skagen Designs found its name. In 1989, Henrik and Charlotte Jorst came to the United States from their native Denmark to follow a dream: that of owning and running their own business, to introduce the Danish lifestyle and philosophy into the lives of many. Skagen Designs was founded by these two natives of Copenhagen on the principle that beautifully designed high-quality objects can be created at reasonable prices. The Skagen Denmark Collections reflect owners Charlotte and Henrik Jorst's creative Danish spirit with clean, elegant designs, skillful craftsmanship and technical perfection. The Jorsts have a hand in designing each piece of the Skagen Collection, from watches to jewelry to sunglasses. Our mission is to create a global community of enthusiasts with our commitment to designing an impressive and unique yet attainable product.
