NEW SHOWROOM IN MILAN
Carl Hansen & Søn amplifies its presence in the design
capital with a new showroom on the corner of Foro Buonaparte and
Carl Hansen & Søn has strengthened its presence in Milan
with a new and larger showroom in the historic neighborhood between
the Sforza Castle (Castello Sforzesco) and the Brera district.
Occupying the entire ground floor of a beautifully renovated 1884
building, the showroom offers the best in classic furniture
craftsmanship, with designs from Hans J. Wegner, Ole Wanscher, Poul
Kjærholm, Kaare Klint and others. The opening coincides with rising
interest in Danish design and high-class furniture craftsmanship,
both in Italy and internationally.
The showroom is strategically located within the Foro Buonaparte
circle, between the Sforza Castle (Castello Sforzesco), Cadorna
Station, the Triennale Design Museum, and the Brera district, home
to the Piccolo Teatro. The area also houses an increasing number of
high-profile fashion and design businesses and showrooms, as well
as many restaurants and recreational areas. This classic part of
the city offers views of the greenery in Parco Sempione and is
known for its historical 19th century buildings:
majestic and atmospheric constructions decorated with stucco and
wrought iron and inspired by Italian Art Nouveau.
"The Italians have a strong connection to historical traditions
and classic style; at the same time, Italy is a renowned center for
modern design. The Carl Hansen & Søn range is perfectly aligned
with this duality, as our classic aesthetic matches many styles and
interiors", CEO Knud Erik Hansen, who represents the third
generation of Carl Hansen & Søn, explains.
The grand opening of the new showroom took place during Milan's
major international furniture exhibition, Salone del Mobile, in
