TRADITIONAL VALUES IN TODAY’S CONTEXT
Since Knud Erik Hansen, Carl Hansen’s grandson, became the third-generation leader of the family-owned business in 2002, Carl Hansen & Søn has significantly expanded its international presence.
Today, the furniture we manufacture can be found all over the world. Our flagship stores and showrooms span New York, San Francisco, Tokyo, Osaka, London, Milan, Stockholm, Oslo, Copenhagen, Gelsted, Hamburg, Paris, and Warsaw and we have sales subsidiaries in the USA, Japan, and Hong Kong.
Yet with all this change, our century-long commitment to producing world-class design has remained constant. We manufacture our furniture at our modern production facilities in Denmark to ensure the highest quality standards, using a combination of traditional techniques and new technologies to create timeless, modern design that endures for generations. From the start of production to the moment our furniture takes pride of place in a new interior, we are guided by dedication to honest, sustainable practices that uphold the legacies of our founder and designers.
Today, Carl Hansen & Søn chairs, tables and sofas complete many of the most exciting, beautiful and daring modern spaces. They set the tone at some of the world’s best restaurants. They serve in meeting spaces where world leaders make history. They enhance millions of people’s travel experiences in hotels and airports. They bring a new dimension to healthcare and wellbeing facilities, elevating the human experience. They regularly appear on the pages of top architecture and design publications showcasing the work of the best architects and interior designers working today.
And they tell the story of Danish Modern in the permanent collections of such seminal museums as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
