Grete Jalk


Grete Jalk (1920-2006) is remembered most notably for her mastery of classic Danish forms. Her designs were expressed in clean, simple lines that offered useful comfort efficiently produced by modern manufacture. Initially a liberal arts student, she studied at the Design School for Women 1940-43, then the Danish Design School in 1946 (returning as faculty 1950-60), and with Kaare Klint at the Royal Academy Furniture School.
