With a long history of amazing craftsmanship, dating back to the beginning of the company in 1908 in Odense, Denmark, Carl Hansen & Son is deeply rooted in the Danish Design Movement combining superior manufacturing with world renowned designs by Ole Wanscher, Hans J Wegner, and Mogens Koch, to name a few. The passion for quality and longevity is apparent in the choice of materials as well, using local, sustainably harvested wood, it is hard to find a more conscientious, stylish, well made product.
Architect and furniture designer, Ole Wanscher, shaped Danish furniture design both as a teacher and active designer. He drew inspiration for The Egyptian Stool from Ancient Egypt and Thebes. The stool exudes dignity and power and the construction and finish are outstanding.
