MENU is a Danish design company founded in 1976. We do design. All day actually. Occasionally at night as well. Collaborating with some of the most talented designers in the world we deliver high quality design with a crisp Scandinavian look. We call it soft minimalism.
At Menu we’re passionate about design, new materials and clever details, and we dream about making a difference.
So we believe in making design matter – and we strives to do so by creating products that evoke true feelings, innovations that make a genuine difference, and by combining do-well with do-good. We’re passionate, original and responsible.
Raumgestalt designs, produces and markets beautifully shaped articles intended both for use and appreciation.
DESIGN AND CRAFTSMANSHIP THROUGH 3 GENERATIONS
At Bent Hansen we make it a point of honour that the quality of the craftsmanship and the materials shines through, and that our furniture expresses the simplicity and honesty that is forever in fashion.
CEO and designer Henrik Hvid Hansen is the innovative force behind the company Bent Hansen. Surrounded by qualified craftsmen, he has the best opportunities to try out new ideas and test different kinds of leather and textiles.
Through it’s 60 years of experience the company Bent Hansen has always considered solid workmanship of great importance. Back in 1948 Henrik Hvid Hansen’s grandfather, upholsterer Svend Hansen, founded the company. Back then the key competence was restoring old furniture.
In 1967 Svend Hansen’s son, Bent Hansen, took over the company. He expanded the business and started manufacturing interior for restaurants, hotels and ships.
In 1983 third generation, Henrik Hvid Hansen was ready to enter the family company. As an upholsterer like his father and grandfather before him and deeply fascinated by modern design Henrik has turned Bent Hansen into a modern design company with its own line of furniture design and home accessories.
The name DAQI is taken from a Chinese saying and means to take time to become great and mature, to emphasize that the best things in life require more dedication. This philosophy is aligned to our belief that design is not made up out of thin air, but rather comes from a process of repetitive experiments and revisions.
As designers, we hope to bring together traditional craft and modern technology to create beautiful things and elevate user experiences as well as their lifestyles.
DAQI CONCEPT INC., was founded in July, 2015 by a team of product designers and the DAQI CONCEPT lifestyle and home product brand was introduced in the same year.
