Carl Hansen - Lighting
Founded in 1908 by Danish cabinet maker Carl Hansen, the company's success has hinged on two core ideas: an uncompromising commitment to the finest craftsmanship, and alliances with exceptional designers who continually reinvent and refine the concept of modern design.
When Carl's son Holger joined the company in 1949, he took a chance on a then unknown designer Hans Wegner, who emerged in the 1950s as a driving force in the international success of the Danish Modern design movement. \
Today, Carl Hansen & Søn continues to work closely with the Hans J. Wegner Studio and is the world’s largest producer of Wegner’s furniture, manufactured in Denmark.
