Since its foundation in 1911, the family-owned company Fredericia has built a strong tradition of craftsmanship and design, developed in close collaboration with a circle of internationally recognised designers. They all play a part in the design and craftsmanship brand Fredericia is today. Forming a creative culture characterised by integrity, artistic expression, material expertise and knowledge. The company was initially established as Fredericia Stolefabrik (Fredericia Chair Factory). From the very start, Fredericia became known for extremely high-quality furniture in various tradition styles. In 1955, visionary businessman Andreas Graversen integrated Fredericia's heritage of high-quality furniture with modernist ideals in a close, well-known collaboration with Børge Mogensen. Mogensen's intuitive understanding of materials and strong sense of proportions led to a range of iconic pieces celebrated to this day - by collectors, museums, architects and designers around the world.
