Carl Hansen and sons

July 8th 2009

Wishbone chair Carl Hansen and Sons have been manufacturing furniture in Denmark since 1908. Remarkably the company is still in the hands of the same family. Carl the founder, was a trained cabinet maker and began by making a modest range of table, cahirs and cupbpards. His collaboration with emerging designer Hans J Wegner in the1940’s was behind the Company’s future prosperity, going on to produce the classic Wishbone chair in the early 1950’s. Holger Hansen son of Carl lead the Company until his untimely death in 1962, and now his son Knud is at the helm. Now Company only produces furniture designed by the Hans J Wegner studio, continually re introducing the designs that Hans J Wegner left behind and built their success. Products include Sofas and tub chairs, desks, conference tables and boardroom furniture. The Company also has offices in Japan and the US
