Our designer

Carl Hansen & Søn

The Danish furniture manufacturer Carl Hansen & Søn and DUX share a common tradition for craftsmanship and design. Together we have had the opportunity to revive a fantastic bed designed by Børge Mogensen in the late 50's. The craftsmanship shows in everything from the mattress to the wooden frame that permeate the design, creating comfort in a bed that needs to be experienced.

Like DUX, Carl Hansen & Søn is a family-owned company with a long tradition of dedicated and beautiful craftsmanship. It has long been our wish to be able to furnish all the rooms in the house.  This is the first time we have presented a bed. With the addition of the bed, it also becomes possible to furnish bedrooms and entire hotel rooms with our collection, especially with our selection of Børge Mogensen furniture, which is quite unique.

The Carl Hansen story

In the 1950s, Børge Mogensen designed a collection for Carl Hansen & Søn that included a bed. In 2020, this never-before-launched collection was rediscovered in the Danish design company's rich archives. Carl Hansen & Søn contacted DUX and the collaboration began. The DUX mattress CH18 is uniquely designed to complement the comfort of the bed. Carl Hansen & Søn's craftsmanship combined with DUX comfort has resulted in a perfect bed. The bed has many of Børge Mogensen's characteristic details, including the visible and beautifully galvanized corners that require great precision and careful craftsmanship.

Børge Mogensen's focus on creating designs that last for generations is also evident in the bed, which has a robust solid oak frame and rectangular and cylindrical cushions with straps in core leather, which complete the design. The DUX mattress has a spring core that is specially developed for the collaboration. The mattress is only sold together with Carl Hansen & Søn BM0555. The bed is also available with three end sets for use as a combined sofa and extra bed.

DESIGNER Børge Mogensen (1914-1972) was a pioneer in democratic design and was known as ‘the people’s designer’ – partly due to his engaging personality, but also because he always designed quality furniture that was within people’s reach. Mogensen’s democratic design included simple and functional wooden furniture, with calm aesthetics and strong construction from quality materials.
