Hven is connecting. Connecting Sweden and Denmark. Connecting Swedish designer Anton Björsing and the Danish design company Skagerak. Connecting families, friends and people around the dining table.
In Öresund, a narrow strait separating Denmark and Sweden, the island of Hven shoots up from the sea with its beautiful shores, wonderful nature and rich history of culture and scientific achievements. Hven once belonged to the Kingdom of Denmark, but it became Swedish soil more than 350 years ago. Today, ferry connections from both sides of the strait connect the two Nordic countries through the island, which has become a hub for art, culture and recreation.
Just like the island, the new Hven series brings together the best from two worlds in the form of design, craftsmanship and values. The furniture is entirely made of wood and tells an impressive story of a minimalistic design with few subtle details, characterized by slightly bend surfaces and rounded legs. This adds both weight and lightness to Hven in a well-balanced composition.
Hven is designed by the talented Anton Björsing who grew up in Landskrona with a direct view towards the little island in Öresund.
