Carl Hansen, the Danish company founded in 1908, was one of the first industrial firms to believe in the complicity between craftsmanship and mass production. Today, as in the past, it produces wooden chairs, sofas, bookcases and tables inspired by period design.
Carl Hansen & Son is an historical danish design company founded by Mr. Carl Hansen on a strong belief: outstanding craftsmanship and rational serial production could go hand-in-hand to provide customers with high-quality furniture at a reasonable price. Today, Carl Hansen & Son continues to build on this simple but strong idea, combining traditional woodworking techniques with the latest technology to produce furniture of lasting value.
Most of the furniture produced today was designed by leading Danish architects back in the 1930s and up to the 1960s, but the design, the vision and the craftsmanship behind every piece of furniture is still as relevant today as it was then. If not even more so today. This is why the dedication to working with the best materials and the best designers has and will always be fundamental to Carl Hansen & Søn.
Carl Hansen & Søn wants indeed to keep bringing this sustainable idea forward of producing furniture with a long life, made of wood harvested from sustainably managed forests and treated in a way that is as gentle as possible for the environment.
The skilled craftsmen and women still work with the same pride and dedication to their work and it this passion that helps us maintain the same high quality in every piece of furniture that leaves our factory in Aarup.
Behind every piece of furniture there lies vision, careful thought and skilled craftsmanship. That’s why every piece comes with a story.
