Carl Hansen & Søn Furniture making

The Wishbone Chair, the Table Bench and the Safari Chair are some of the wooden icons from the tradition known as Danish Modern. Guided by simplicity, functionality and craftsmanship, and pioneered by grand designers such as Hans J. Wegner, Børge Mogensen and Kaare Klint, their legacy is under the expert care of the craftspeople at Carl Hansen & Søn; the exclusive design house and manufacturer responsible for masterpieces and contemporary classics alike.

Founded in 1908 by cabinet maker Carl Hansen, a prestigious and highly sustainable wood workshop remains at the heart of the company, and a unique sense for quality woodwork has turned into a global success story. Continuing to revitalise and refine the codex of modern design with an unapologetic passion for craftsmanship, Carl Hansen & Søn furniture decorate the world’s most excellent spaces, including permanent collections at museums like MoMA and the Met in New York, where they tell the story of a chapter in Danish design history.
