THANK YOU, CARL HANSEN & SON.

September 1, 2015

We recently got invited by Carl Hansen & Son, the all-time classic Danish furniture guru, to join their tour in Denmark. After doing (or we can proudly say “pioneering”) so many Scandinavian designs over the last few years, it was such an honor to finally get the chance visit the country, to experience it up close and personal.

A small group of selected dealers and designers from around the world got together in Copenhagen for a 3-day private tour. We visited the factory where the world famous CH24 chairs and other furniture pieces are passionately handcrafted. We learned the history of Carl Hansen & Son and Rud. Rasmussens from the man behind all these, Mr. Knud Erik Hansen, understanding all the success stories of these world famous furniture brands over the last century. We got to share our professional experiences with each other. We celebrated originality and design. It sure was a memorable and valuable trip for everyone involved.

Once again, thank you Carl Hansen for the tour. Thank you Morten and Knud Erik. Thank you Katrina from Manks. If anyone interested in using Carl Hansen furniture in their homes or offices, just contact Manks, the official distributor in Hong Kong.

Good design lasts a lifetime. Please support original design as there is simply no soul in all those replicas.
