Founded in 1893, Gärsnäs is a family business with its own furniture works in the village of that name, in the Österlen region of Skåne, southern Sweden, and with a showroom in Stockholm. Gärsnäs is run by Anna and Dag Klockby together with Åke Axelsson, and the three of them share a vision of making tradition, skill and renewal carry the firm into the future. Quality wooden furniture has been at the centre of attention right from the start, and in the joinery works craftsmanship passes by natural succession from one generation to the next. Gärsnäs has an ongoing collaboration with many leading designers, and the bounds of possibility are stretched by the convergence of craftspeople and designers. When Åke Axelsson designed his first Gärsnäs chair at the beginning of the 1960s, this proved the beginning of an important and enduring partnership resulting in many design classics and new models. The Gärsnäs philosophy is founded on long-termism, sustainability and the details making up the whole.
