Carl Hansen & Søn represents over 100 years of furniture history with respect and passion for quality craftsmanship. By the 1930s the company began working with some of Denmark’s most talented emerging designers and, in 1949, started to collaborate with Hans J. Wegner. Wegner designed a series of chairs that included the iconic Wishbone Chair during his first year with the brand.
Carl Hansen is the world’s largest producer of furniture design by Hans J. Wegner and works closly with his studio to introduce and relaunch several of his original designs. Representing the third generation after founder Carl Hansen, Knud Erik Hansen now leads the company and continues to form new partnerships with Danish and international design masters such as Frits Henningsen, Ole Wanscher, Tadao Ando and EOOS. Carl Hansen & Søn furniture is still produced in Denmark and sold all over the world.
