The Danish design furniture manufacturer Carl Hansen & Son has opened a new showroom in London, in the design district Clerkenwell to be precise. Also present in the showroom is the illustrious cabinetmaker workshop Rud Rasmussen, who since 2011 has been an independent brand in the Carl Hansen & Son Group. It is the first time that Rud Rasmussen’s furniture is displayed in England.
The showroom is located in a historic building and covers three floors. The ground floor serves as a gallery, and on the first floor appears Carl Hansen & Son’s wide collection of furniture design classics, designed by architects including Hans J. Wegner, Ole Wanscher and Frits Henningsen. The second floor is dedicated the classical Rud Rasmussen collection of furniture by Kaare Klint, Mogens Koch and Poul Kjærholm.
With the opening of the new showroom, Carl Hansen & Son strengthens presence at the British market, which is already one of the company’s major markets. The showroom will service the many architects and interior designers, who are based in London.
The new showroom is located at the address 16A Bowling Green Lane, London EC1R 0BD.
