BY NORDIC HANDS?

BY NORDIC HANDS was founded in Luzern in February 2016 by Kasper Kammersgaard. The company has since evolved a little, and now has two main focuses:

1) To provide made-to-measure wooden furniture (kitchens, bathrooms, wardrobes, libraries, etc.) from a Danish carpentry called ‘Garde Hvalsøe’, acting as their exclusive regional agent and local designer (dealing with the whole design phase, from idea phase to negotiations, to finished project)

2) Acting as a free trade agent to various Scandinavian companies, such as Carl Hansen & Søn (DK), LE KLINT (DK), Skagerak (DK), Swedese (SWE), and Anour (DK) – where I am the local point-of-contact for the dealer network throughout Switzerland (dealing with sales, marketing, support, etc.) – read more under Brands.

I have experience with both unique wooden kitchens, modern style bathrooms, and many different types of bespoke furniture, and have been working with both private and corporate customers. I also have a focus in the furniture project business, where we have experience from hotels, lounge areas, cafés, restaurants, cantinas, offices, meeting rooms, etc.

What do I offer

I offer timeless wooden interior design for any building project you may have. Every product and piece of furniture are from a Scandinavian design perspective and -style.

As my time working as a Constructional Architect, I have acquired experience from both an Architecture company and a carpenter company, and have no problem managing any interior design project.

I have experience with both luxury kitchens, modern style bathrooms, and bespoke furniture, and have been working with both private and corporate customers.

What can you expect

After working with Garde Hvalsøe for some years, I’m now the exclusive regional agent in Switzerland and Austria for their products. Because of this in-depth knowledge that I have acquired about the products, I can guarantee you both the best service, as well as the best craftsmanship from Denmark.

With any Garde Hvalsøe-product, you have traditional Nordic craftsmanship, Danish design, quality materials, and minimalism.

You can, naturally, expect full discretion with any projects.

How do we proceed

If the reference pictures above, the portfolio items, and descriptions have awakened your interest, then I’d love to hear from you! So please contact me and make an inquiry regarding your renovation project – you can reach me at +41 (0)76 786 07 05 or write me an e-mail.

I will then get back to you, to arrange either a meeting at your home, invite you to come visit my showroom, where we will map your wishes, needs, and ideas. I will then prepare a price estimate and 3D visualization from a plan drawing of the room, which you can then look at.

Scandinavian Style – Interior Design projects

Scandinavian- and Nordic style in design, as well as the term Danish design, represents simplicity, minimalism and functionality combined – and is often used to describe both furniture, Architecture, interior design, etc.

Whether it’s a bespoke, wooden Dinesen-kitchen or classical and sturdy Hans J. Wegner-furniture you are looking for, I can help you get the Nordic feeling to your home.

Give me a call at either (CH) +41 (0)76 786 07 05 or (DK) +45 2420 0423 to discuss further.

Danish Design Classics – Timeless Furniture

Other than the amazing, made-to-measure kitchens from Garde Hvalsøe A/S, I can also deliver the more classic furniture from PP Møbler, Carl Hansen & Søn, Swedese, Skagerak, Anour, and some others. So you are in need of a sturdy and ergonomic dining-room chair, or maybe a cozy lounge chair from Danish designers Hans J. Wegner, Børge Mogensen, Arne Jacobsen, Poul Kjærholm, Mogens Koch, and many more – feel free to give me a call for a non-committal price quote.

See more pictures of, amongst others, the Wishbone Chair, Bull Chair, Flag Halyard Chair, or maybe The Egg, here on this site.

Partners and brands – who am I working with

CARL HANSEN & SØN – Passionate Craftsmanship since 1908

Carl Hansen & Søn was established in Denmark in 1908 by cabinetmaker Carl Hansen. Their passion for producing high-quality furniture is rooted in more than a century of craftsmanship traditions. Through the years, Carl Hansen & Søn has maintained a strong focus on preserving Danish design classics while continuing to expand our collection to represent influential new designers.

To this day, Carl Hansen & Søn remains faithful to their design-philosophy about producing sustainable furniture of enduring beauty.

Carl Hansen & Søn is the largest manufacturer of furniture designed by Hans J. Wegner. They continually develop their portfolio by gathering iconic furniture classics, including, among many: The Wishbone Chair by Hans J. Wegner, The Safari Chair by Kaare Klint, The Folding Chair by Mogens Koch and The Colonial Chair by Ole Wanscher. All iconic classics, which are all characterized by high-quality and sustainable craftsmanship.

LE KLINT – classic and modern lamps from Denmark since 1942

LE KLINT was founded in 1942, and is a Danish lighting manufacturer born out of the Scandinavian design tradition where form follows function.

LE KLINT lamps are developed in cooperation with architects and designers who have great respect for our craftsmanship and traditions. Over the years, Designers and Architects such as Kaare Klint, Esben Klint, Mogens Koch, Poul Christiansen, and many more, have designed timeless classics.

From LE KLINT you can get the iconic paper lampshades (Model 101, 375, the Bouquet) from the Classic Collection, and more modern lamps from the Modern collection – which includes e.g. Carronade and the Pliverre model series.

LE KLINT is synonymous with lampshades. Their handfolded iconic shades take years of learning specific techniques, completing a qualifying process and mastering many different pleating forms. But the paper-shades is only a fraction of their product range procedure and the craftsmanship that lies behind each lamp. Specialist metal workers and wood workers play a big part in the magic, which has been going hand in hand with the folding process, since the beginning.

SWEDESE – Sweden-based furniture maker since 1945

Swedese is a classic Swedish furniture producer with a strong anchor in both the public and domestic domain. The most well known design of Yngve Ekström’s extensive portfolio is the Lamino armchair from 1956, which is still manufactured and sold all over the world. In 1999 the Lamino was voted the Twentieth Century’s Best Swedish Furniture Design by the Swedish interior design magazine Sköna Hem.

Swedese’s ideals are the same today as they have been for the past seventy years. These are to create beautiful furniture for the future, which build on the foundations of Scandinavian modern traditions, designed by forward-looking designers who share in the timeless ideals of architecture.

Swedese was founded in 1945 by the two brothers Yngve and Jerker Ekström and Bertil Sjöqvist. The headquarters are located to Vaggeryd in Småland, Sweden.

ANOUR – Farsi for “Light”

Anour is a Danish Design Company established in 2007, who creates beautiful, clean LED lamps. It was in 2012 however, when Founder and Architect Arash Nourinejad realised his vision of creating a lamp of uncompromising design with visionary functionality, made from the finest materials. While still working as an architect for kitchen, Arash got his first idea about the lamp – the I Model.

In November 2012, Arash was able to show his A_series at the furniture fair Blickfang in Copenhagen. The public paid greatest attention to the linear lamp called I Model, which in a couple of years became the most successful product of the company.

Anour combines the knowledge of craftmanship from generations of Danish design traditions with the latest LED technology. This gives the customer a product that stands the test of time, a lamp that only becomes more beautiful over the years. This approach to sustainability is innovative and focus on creating lights suitable for lasting a lifetime. www.anour.dk
