The Embrace Tables and Embrace Chair further extend the versatility of this striking furniture series, designed by Austrian trio EOOS.
The introduction of a new partnership between Carl Hansen & Son and the innovative designers behind EOOS has attracted considerable attention, who describe the series as ‘100% Carl Hansen & Son and 100% EOOS’. The Austrian design trio and the Danish furniture manufacturer initiated their creative dialogue with the Embrace Armchair – a reinterpretation of the classic dining chair with soft upholstery and an inviting shape. More furniture items have since been added, including a lounge chair and footstool.Carl Hansen & Son and EOOS are now gathering the Embrace chairs around a new table concept, Embrace Tables, with a strong visual identity that makes the series even more versatile.
Knud Erik Hansen, CEO of Carl Hansen & Son, said: ‘The Embrace chairs represent something entirely new while also expressing the Carl Hansen & Son DNA, which unites uncompromising craftsmanship and high quality. The design was exceptionally well received, so it is only natural to complement the series with a number of tables and a dining chair without armrests – to create a furniture series with even broader versatility.
‘The partnership with EOOS has proven very fruitful. Not least because we share the same respect for craftsmanship, quality and mode of expression – but also because EOOS’ progressive approach to design has challenged the product development team, cabinet makers and upholsterers at our furniture factory in Gelsted on the Danish island of Funen. This is where we manufacture the Embrace Series in line with the high-quality standards for which Carl Hansen & Son has been renowned for generations.’
