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.
Born in Copenhagen in 1944 and originally trained in shipping, Morten Gøttler became a self-taught designer and architect known for his exceptional understanding of wood. He opened his own studio in 1972 and has worked in many genres, including furniture design, domestic art, packaging, toys, graphics and lighting. Gøttler’s clean, easy aesthetic is characterized by well-thought-out form, exquisite comfort, and close attention to detail – all brought to life using high-quality materials.
