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.
With his unconventional background and personal design approach, Anker Bak pushes conceptual and physical boundaries via quality materials, craftsmanship and functionality. His designs make a difference in people’s lives and meet real needs. An example of this is the Rocking Nest Chair he made for his sister who needed a comfortable place to relax with her newborn baby. The chair’s distinct, minimalist, folding form shows Bak’s understanding of materials, function and aesthetics, as well as society’s changing needs.
