Thorvald Bindesboell

1846 - 1908

Bindesboell trained as an architect and finished in 1876. He was a very gifted and talented designer and did not restrict his designs to just one field.

In 1880 he began experimenting with clay and ceramics and started designing ceramics for Johan Wallmann in 1883. A collaboration that lasted until 1890. In 1888 he exhibited at Den Store Nordiske exhibition in Copenhagen. From the early 1890s he collaborated with painter and ceramist Svend Hammershoej about ceramics. Bindesboell continued designing ceramics for G. Eifrig fra 1891-1904.

As well as ceramics he designed embroidery for his sisters, who were partners in an emboidery shop, he also made designs for book covers, furniture and metalwork. Around 1898 he started designing silverware, he made designs for A. Michelsen, A. Dragsted and P. Hertz before meeting Holger Kyster in 1904. Bindesboell felt that Kyster understood his sketches and was better able to bring his designs to life in silver.
Unfortunately Bindesboell died in 1908 just four years into the collaboration.

Bindesboell participated in several World Exhibitions. His work is widely represented in museums both in Denmark and abroad.
