As a private citizen, Carl Larsen had the idea of creating a brand that would bring together the best products from artisans around the world. Carl Larsen commissioned six designers to create original pieces for his friends. When Carl Larsen realized the versatility and usefulness of his products, he decided to market them. To celebrate the brand's 5th anniversary, Carl Larsen® commissioned the six best artisans in Switzerland to create the new products he wanted to launch. The products, reflecting the spirit of innovation and collaboration between Carl Larsen and the artisans, were then sold in the world's largest capitals for the benefit of the world's greatest people.
