J.I. Christoffersen

Jens Ivan Christoffersen (1928-2013) trained as an engineer and carpenter, utilising both to craft wooden furniture, toys and accessories. 


Wanting to fuse usability with craftsmanship, Christoffersen enjoyed the quality of wood, each piece with its own structure and individuality.  


A natural problem solver, he sought functional challenges. Believing Tonn-P's iconic Pepper Bird to be missing a mate, he designed the Salt Penguin, a wooden counterpart to make a table set.
