About Lyngby Porcelæn



The porcelain factory in Denmark, Lyngby Porcelæn, was founded in 1936. The company was founded by the entrepreneurial wholesaler Holst & Knudsen, who first acquired Kjøbenhavn’s Porcelains Maleri in 1924 and then founded the factory to produce porcelain tableware, vases and other decorative art of high-quality craftsmanship. The factory closed in 1969, but managed to make a big impact on Danish design history.

Lyngby Porcelæn has always made a strong mark on the history of Danish porcelain, and always with an eye on current trends. For example, it used to be common for people to have two sets of tableware: one for everyday use and one for entertaining. Over time, however, this has changed with more and more people starting to use their smart, decorative tableware day to day.  At Lyngby Porcelæn, this is reflected in a perfectionist approach to the minimalist style that fits in with today’s modern design.

In 2012, the Lyngby Porcelæn brand resumed, and in 2016 the brand was acquired by Rosendahl Design Group. We are now relaunching these iconic designs, recreating them with the greatest care and respect for Lyngby's design legacy. We have combined classic craftsmanship with advanced production techniques to embrace a DNA and a design language that is unique but still fits into most homes.


Lyngby Porcelæn was founded in Kongens Lyngby in Denmark in 1936 with the aim of producing porcelain tableware, vases and other decorative arts of high-quality craftsmanship.

Until the 1920s, ornamentation and decoration dominated designs. The focus was more on the decoration of the porcelain rather than the shape itself. But this changed over time, and soon form and functionality became more important than the decoration itself.

Lyngby Porcelænsfabrik was furnished with the latest technology, which laid the foundation for the design legacy that Lyngby Porcelæn is known for today. With the factory, Lyngby Porcelæn was able to challenge the functionalist traditions - as seen with the Lyngby vase. Perhaps this is why the Lyngby vase became one of the most popular designs of the 1930s.


Lyngby Porcelæn’s factory existed from 1936 until 1969, making everything from dinnerware to vases and handicrafts. The factory closed in 1969 and the brand was at a standstill until 2012, when the Lyngby Porcelæn brand was resumed. The Lyngby vase was out of production from 1969 until 2012, but there was an ever-increasing interest in it. In 2012, production of the vase resumed, making it more accessible and able to reach more homes.

Ever since its foundation, Lyngby Porcelæn has challenged and kept up with the times, leaving its solid mark on Danish design history with its distinctive relief. A design that still stands out today. Today, Lyngby Porcelæn is behind the relaunch of iconic designs, which have been recreated with the greatest care and respect for the design legacy and in continuation of the Danish traditions from the porcelain factory.

Whether you’re throwing a party or gathering the family for dinner, with beautiful tableware your table can be classic and modern at the same time. But if you want to make the style more personal, why not add a splash of color, which you can find in the Rhombe Color series?
