Carl Hansen & Søn
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.
Carl Hansen & Søn’s 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.
Børge Mogensen’s creative process produced long-lasting pieces with humans at the center. He became a highly-influential, post-war designer and a leading representative of Danish Modern.
Mogensen’s democratic design included simple and functional wooden furniture for both private and public spaces, with calm aesthetics and strong construction from quality. He believed in visual clarity and minimal decoration or experimentation, as seen in his classic Hunting Table and Deck Chair Set.
