I am inspired by the story of this company's history and passion. And look at that wardrobe trunk! love.
Handmade Furniture – Homegrown Wood – New Scandinavian Design.
The Hansen Family is a label with a strong handcrafted character, founded by designer Gesa Hansen who grew up in a scandinavian family of carpenters, designers and architects. After graduating at the Bauhaus-University and stopping at a few design studios such as Jean Nouvel and H5 in Paris, and the NDC in Tokyo, she decided to create her own label, combining new design and family savoir-faire in the family atelier. “Homegrown” in the business comes from the natural resources of oaks that we harvest in local forests, in this way allowing each piece to be handcrafted and unique.
The first collection won two times the international Red Dot award, but also the 2010 International Good Design Award of the Chicago Athenaeum and was nominated for the German Design Price 2011.
