Design company Carl Hansen & Søn is a third-generation family-run Danish business. It was established by Carl Hansen in 1908, taken over by his son Holger Hansen in 1934 and then run by his two grandsons, first Jørgen Gerner and now Knud Erik Hansen. What most accounts of the company tend to gloss over, however is the 20 years for which Holger’s wife Ella Hansen ran the company. In this film Knud Erik Hansen tells his personal family story and pays a tribute to his powerful mother Ella who took over the company when his father died.
