Hans Hansen (1884-1940) was a Danish designer and silversmith. In 1906, he opened a workshop in Kolding, Denmark, which was taken over by his son Karl Gustav following his death in 1940. Whilst Hansen retailed his jewellery independently, he supplied various designs which were manufactured and retailed by Georg Jensen. In 1991 the firm was taken over by Georg Jensen. The bracelet was later given the name ‘Peak’ and is still in production.
