Vivianna Torun Bülow-Hübe, arguably the brand’s most iconoclastic designer, stands by as Pablo Picasso handles one of her jewelry pieces in Antibes, France, 1955.  Vivianna Torun Bülow-Hübe (1927 – 2004), often known simply as Torun, was one of Sweden’s most important 20th century silversmiths and a master jeweller. In 1960, Torun was awarded a gold medal at the 1960 Milan Triennale and also won the American Lunning Prize for design, given annually to innovative Scandinavian designers in their thirties. She then met the Danish silversmith Georg Jensen, for whom she began designing exclusively in 1969. She is the first female silversmith to have become internationally noted. Torun’s jewelry has been worn by celebrities including Billie Holiday, Ingrid Bergman, and Brigitte Bardot, and her customers included Pablo Picasso and Duke Ellington.
