SAMIRA KUDSK PR is a leading Danish public relations agency specialising in lifestyle and design.
Gunnar Flørning (1931 – 2014) is world famous for bringing life to wood, and today, many of his works are considered design icons. He was the man behind some of the biggest bestsellers of the 1950s and 1960s. He has left behind a huge design archive that contains finished products, prototypes and sketches. His products reflect the optimism and belief in the future of the post-war years. This is clearly expressed in the playful and humorous design that is unmistakable in the wooden figures.
Gunnar Flørning’s legacy is being relaunched today with extraordinary care and respect for the original designs and in constant dialogue with the family. This ongoing dialogue makes it possible to get very close to the original spirit of the products. Today they work with the same palette of natural materials as in the past, meaning wood, leather, etc. All wooden products carry the mandatory labels and will be produced in a responsible way.
