REALLY MADE IN DENMARK

Happening cabinetmakers Egeværk are currently challenging status quo in the world of Danish fine furniture. Rounded by the most exquisite traditions of this proud and renowned industry, Egeværk offers a new and uncompromising take on creating next generation furniture. Or is their take actually an old one?? The fact of the matter is that Egeværk owners Mette Bentzen and Lasse Kristensen draw on craft traditions dating back to the time of their great-grandparents; while at the same time offering a breath of fresh air to their industry. An industry that for decades has idolized the designer and somewhat neglected the true craftmanship. Egeværk is all about the opposite; no compromises apply in the process of manufacturing and the beauty and longevity of the furniture are created in an almost spiritual devotion to the finest wood work.

All Egeværk products are meticulously crafted at the Egeværk workshop in Hundested - an old fishing town on the north coast of Zealand - and here a certain workshop spirit is cultivated. All Egeværk cabinetmakers are trained from scratch in the workshop to meet til staggering quality demands of Mette Bentzen and Lasse Kristensen. Both Mette and Lasse are award-winning cabinetmakers trained in the most esteemed workshops of Copenhagen, and they continue to push the envelope when developing their craft. Modest by nature and always absorbed in his work, it is only Lasse's T-shirts that occasionally give him away; he is a Danish as well as a Nordic champion in cabinetmaking, and has even defended the Danish colours in the world championship. The word 'compromise' is nowhere to be found in the Egeværk dictionary!

Egeværk offers a wide range of products from toys and kitchen utensils to the finest furniture and art objects - some of them are even one-of-a-kind pieces or limited edition collector's items.
