Carl Hansen & Son’s belief that iconic design is a combination of simplicity, aesthetics and functionality brought to life through skillful work with the highest quality materials, has for over 100 years specialized in providing the outstanding furniture craftsmanship that brings visionary design concepts to life.
Their story began in 1908 when Danish cabinetmaker Carl Hansen opened a small furniture workshop on the Danish island of Funen. Since then, the company’s success has depended on two core ideas: an uncompromising commitment to the finest craftsmanship, and alliances with exceptional designers who continually reinvent and refine the concept of modern design.
Carl Hansen & Søn’s evolution has been deeply influenced by its long-term relationship with one of the greatest designers of all time - Hans J. Wegner. This creative partnership began in 1949, when Carl Hansen’s son Holger Hansen took a chance on the then-unknown designer, and 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 & Søn’s best known and bestselling designer, his works becoming widely recognized as modern classics and treasured collector’s items around the world – his legacy remaining an essential part of the company’s DNA.
Today, Carl Hansen & Søn continues to work closely with the Hans J. Wegner Studio and is the world’s largest producer of Wegner’s furniture, manufactured in Denmark. This collaboration and the many that followed demonstrated what can be achieved when unprecedented design anduncompromising production come together.
Through the years, Carl Hansen & Søn has maintained a strong focus on preserving Danish design classics while continuing to expand its collection to represent influential new designers. Their goal: to gather the best, most iconic modern furniture designs under one roof.
Since Knud Erik Hansen, Carl Hansen’s grandson, became the third-generation leader of the family-owned business in 2002, The company has significantly expanded its international presence, working with the very best designers and the finest materials, while continuing a long-standing commitment to driving sustainable development.
