The Carl Hansen & Son flagship store in the Aoyama District, Tokyo.
The 2nd April 2014 was the 100th anniversary of one of Denmark’s best-known furniture designers, Hans J. Wegner. One of the leading manufacturers of Wegner’s furniture, Carl Hansen & Son, marked the day with the official opening of a new flagship store in Tokyo, Japan, which is one of the company’s major export markets.
The new store has 2 floors and is situated in the Aoyama quarter of the attractive Tokyo district Jiungmae, which is already the home of some of Japan’s most exclusive design and lifestyle stores. At Carl Hansen & Son, expectations for the new flagship store are high, hoping that it will support the distribution of Japan’s knowledge of the Danish design furniture brand.
The store will host a presentation of classic Danish furniture craftsmanship. The decor is inspired by Danish architecture, creating an authentic atmosphere around the furniture. In addition to Carl Hansen & Son’s extensive Wegner collection, the illustrious furniture range from Rud. Rasmussen will be displayed for the first time in Japan and in Asia in general. This gives the Japanese an opportunity to become acquainted with renowned Danish furniture designers such as Kaare Klint, Mogens Koch and Mogens Lassen.
