Kay Fisker (1893 Frederiksburg, Denmark – 1965 Copenhagen, Denmark) was a famous Danish architect, designer and educator. He is mostly known for his many housing projects, mainly in the Copenhagen area. Between 1925 and 1928 Fisker was responsible for the design of several highly influential modernist silver objects for Anton Michelsen.
The designs had very considerable influence on later silverwork in Denmark. Over the next decades Michelsen continued to employ noted architects (including Denmark’s most famous architect: Arne Jacobsen) as designers of silver tablewares, and following Fisker’s lead, they were responsible for introducing innovative forms into the company’s products.
It was not until after 1930 that the better-known Danish firm Georg Jensen took the modern approach that Fisker and Michelsen had pioneered.
