Just Andersen created one of the largest Scandinavian commercial successes of the Art Deco period. Just Andersen (1884-1943) was born in Greenland.   He became an apprentice as a decorative sculptor, and later he studied at the Copenhagen art and craft school, and finally in 1920 he studied at the Academy of Fine Art in Copenhagen.

Just Andersen worked together with two other contemporary metal artists - namely silversmiths Georg Jensen and Mogens Ballin.

in 1918 Just Andersen  established his own studio. The Copenhagen-based studio grew steadily and ended up having offices in Berlin, Brussels, London, Los Angeles and New York. In 1929 Just Andersen initiated an artistic and economic cooperation with the G.A.B. (Goldsmedjarnas Aktiebolag) in Stockholm.
