Carl Hansen founded his company on a strong belief: outstanding craftsmanship and rational serial production could go hand-in-hand to provide customers with high-quality furniture at a reasonable price. Today, they continue to build on this simple but strong idea. They combine traditional woodworking techniques with the latest technology to produce furniture of lasting value.
Most of the furniture Carl Hansen & Søn produce today was designed by leading Danish architects back in the 1930s and up to the 1960s, but the design, the vision and the craftsmanship behind every piece of furniture is still as relevant today as it was then. If not even more so today.
"At Carl Hansen & Søn, we feel a great responsibility to keep bringing this sustainable idea forward of producing furniture with a long life, made of wood harvested from sustainably managed forests and treated in a way that is as gentle as possible for the environment. Our skilled craftsmen and -women still work with the same pride and dedication and it this passion that helps us maintain the same high quality in every piece of furniture that leaves our factory in Gelsted".
