Founded in 1908, Carl Hansen & Søn has developed into one of
Denmark's leading design companies today. With more than a century
of history, backed by respect and a passion for traditional
craftsmanship, we are one of the oldest manufacturers of
high-quality furniture in Denmark, and the biggest manufacturer of
furniture designed by Hans J. Wegner.
Our products embody the narrative of the finest classical
furniture art, created by some of Denmark's leading architects and
designers - including Frits Henningsen, Kaare Klint, Mogens Koch,
Poul Kjærholm and Ole Wanscher - as well as the Japanese architect
Tadao Ando and the Austrian design trio EOOS.
With solid foundations in Danish traditions of joinery, blended
with deep insight into the latest production technology, we make
furniture of durable beauty and value, distinguished by full
respect for sustainable materials.
Even though our roots are firmly anchored in Denmark, we
maintain broad international presence and orientation. Our
furniture is made in Denmark, and we operate sales subsidiaries in
the United States, Japan and Hong Kong - as well as flagship stores
and showrooms in New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, London, Milan, Oslo
The focal point of our everyday operations is to draw on
authentic craftsmanship to create products of peerless quality. As
we see it, working relationships are built on trust and respect,
and we firmly believe that willingness to change and a professional
sense for quality, combined with an accommodating and informal
tone, are sure to produce an interesting and challenging workplace.
At our company, the differences between individual employees help
the business to develop, and lay the foundations for future growth
We employ 300 people in Denmark and abroad. The family-owned
company's headquarters are located in Gelsted, with production
facilities in Aarup and Gelsted on Fyn, Denmark, and staff
functions in Copenhagen.
