Originally formed in 1908, the company evolved with the cooperation between Carl Hansen & Son and designer Hans J. Wegner which began in 1949. Wegner worked closely with Holger Hansen and his team of craftsmen to find a way to bring his daring designs into production. The first models, including the legendary CH24, The Wishbone Chair, were introduced in 1950. Since then Carl Hansen & Son have crafted a wide range of additional Wegner chairs and tables. “Most of the furniture we produce today was designed by leading Danish architects back in the 1930s and up to the 1960s, but the design, the vision and the craftsmanship behind every piece of furniture is still as relevant today as it was then. If not even more so today. This is why our dedication to working with the best materials and the best designers has and will always be fundamental to Carl Hansen & Søn. At Carl Hansen & Søn, we feel a great responsibility to keep bringing this sustainable idea forward of producing furniture with a long life, made of wood harvested from sustainably managed forests and treated in a way that is as gentle as possible for the environment.” Want to learn more, take a look at Carl Hansen’s site here.
