it means everything and it has been so ever since 1908 when Carl
Hansen founded his company in Odense, Denmark.
Carl Hansen founded his company on a strong belief: outstanding

materials and the best designers has and will always be fundamental

Behind every piece of furniture there lies vision, careful
thought and skilled craftsmanship. That's why we say, that every
piece comes with a story. And we hope you'll enjoy making it a part
