Carl Hansen & Søn
Carl Hansen & Son believes that iconic design is a combination of simplicity, aesthetics and functionality, brought to life through skillful work with the highest quality materials. Since 1908 when Danish cabinetmaker Carl Hansen opened a small furniture workshop on the Danish Island of Funen, it has specialised in providing outstanding furniture craftsmanship that brings visionary design concepts to life.
The company’s evolution has been deeply influenced by its long-term relationship with furniture designer Hans J. Wegner. The creative partnership began in 1949, when Wegner developed a successful furniture series that included the now iconic Wishbone Chair. In the 1950s, Wegner emerged as a driving force in the international success of the Danish Modern design movement. He has since become Carl Hansen & Son’s best known and bestselling designer, his works becoming widely recognized as modern classics and treasured collector’s items around the world – and his legacy remaining an essential part of the company’s DNA.
Today, Carl Hansen & Son continues to work closely with the Hans J. Wegner Design Studio as the world’s largest producer of Wegner’s furniture.
