Design brands in a new constellation
The Andersen Furniture and Muubs design companies will be merging on 1 October into one operating company under the name Design Concept Denmark. The owners behind the new company are the same group of owners who are behind Andersen Furniture.
Andersen, who has been producing furniture for more than 100 years, launched an accessories line in 2016, which includes a wide range of home accessories with a modern Nordic style and international appeal. The range from Muubs also includes both furniture and a wide range of accessories. The inspiration is found in the Nordic nature and consists of timeless products with soul and a raw edge.
The two brands will be run as two independent and side-by-side brands, each with their own expression and style, and will continue at the current addresses in Tjørring and Søften near Århus, respectively. The founder of Muubs, Bent Povlsen, will be associated with the company on a consultant basis in a design and development context.
Poul Frandsen, who is currently CEO of Andersen Furniture, continues as director of the umbrella company Design Concept Denmark and the owners of Andersen are convinced, that with the acquisition of Muubs they will create synergy benefits and at the same time continue the positive development of both brands. Design Concept Denmark has a turnover of over DKK 100 million and a staff of more than 50 people.
