Carl Hansen & Søn x DUX bed
Carl Hansen & Son and DUX are launching a bed based on Børge Mogensen's daybed which, with its simple design and compelling choice of materials, combines the best of two worlds - DUX's expertise in sleeping comfort, and Carl Hansen & Son's tradition for superb craftsmanship and design.
The two family-owned companies, Danish Carl Hansen & Son and Swedish DUX, have jointly created a bed in a simple design based on sketches found in Børge Mogensen's archives. The bed has thus never been in production before.
The bed features many of Børge Mogensen's characteristic details, including the beautiful visible mortise joints which require great precision and meticulous craftsmanship. Børge Mogensen's focus on creating designs that last for generations is also evident in the bed which has a sturdy frame made of solid oak and rectangular and cylindrical cushions that complete the look with straps in saddle leather.
The DUX spring core mattress has been specially developed for the bed. It is upholstered in durable light grey DUX textile with exclusive, hand-sewn piping cord. A soft DUX top mattress adds extra comfort to the bed.
On the collaboration with DUX, Knud Erik Hansen, CEO of Carl Hansen & Son, says: "Like Carl Hansen & Son, DUX is a family-owned company with a long tradition of dedicated and beautiful craftsmanship. A mattress from DUX is also more than just a mattress - it is a piece of design. DUX does not compromise on aesthetics or function, which fits perfectly with our philosophy at Carl Hansen & Son." This is the first time Carl Hansen & Son has presented a bed and, about this, Knud Erik Hansen says: "It has long been our wish to be able to furnish all the rooms in the house. With the addition of the bed, it also becomes possible to furnish bedrooms and entire hotel rooms with our collection, especially with our selection of Børge Mogensen furniture, which is quite unique."
The BM0555 bed will be in stores from August 2021 and sold at selected DUX retailers and Carl Hansen & Son flagship stores.
