SVEND SIUNE (1935- )

Svend Siune graduated in 1961 from the School of Arts, Crafts, and Design in Copenhagen and has since designed furniture and cutlery. His most notable pattern is Blue Shark, a modernist design in stainless steel, which won 3rd place in a design competition where it was first shown. Blue shark was one of the smallest flatware patterns produced, having only a knife, a fork, a spoon, and a teaspoon in its regular place setting. It is often attributed to being one of the most organic looking designs produced, and received its name from its smooth shark like shape. Svend Siune was also a graphic designer, whom worked on a number of key graphic images, including the design of magazine covers as well as working with Olaf Staer Nielsen by designing the emblem for the Political Science department of Aarhus University for Staer-Nielsen's wood relief sculpture.
