Carl Hansen opened his furniture workshop in Odense, Denmark in 1908 and soon became known for the high quality of his work. In the early days, the company produced bespoke furniture - including everything from dining room sets to bedroom suites. As the company grew and times changed, however, it gradually began to produce smaller series of its most popular pieces. This combination of hand craftsmanship and rational series production soon became the firm's hallmark - and continues to set it apart today. Until the middle of the 1940s Carl Hansen & Søn cooperated with Frits Henningsen, a famous Danish architect. Frits Henningsen designed a series of Windsor chairs whereof Carl Hansen & Søn produced some of the models until 2003.
At Carl Hansen & Søn we are highly dependent on our skilled employees which is why we take their wellbeing very seriously.
Our production facilities and processes meet or exceed all European and Danish health and safety requirements, which are among the most stringent in the world.
The physical working environment is pleasantly modern, with natural lighting and ergonomically corrects workstations for all. All production and administrative employees in Denmark are eligible to receive free, regular massage to prevent long-term injury that may be related to their work.
Danish energy consumption per capita and as compared to GNP is among the lowest in the world. This is due both to strict conservation practices governed by law (such as standards for insulating buildings), high energy prices and a generation of efforts to minimize energy costs and environmental impact.
