Please note that this promotion has now ended.

28 October 2018 marks the 110th birthday of eminent Danish manufacturer Carl Hansen & Søn. Carl Hansen founded his company in a small workshop in Odense on the island of Funen in Denmark in 1908 - it now occupies over 18,000 square metres of factory space across 12 buildings in Gelsted. Maintaining production in Denmark also maintains the tradition of passionate craftsmanship that is the company's hallmark.
