lange production
Henrik Lange of Lange Production has had a keen interest in modern furniture since boyhood. As a 31 year old businessman at a crossroads in his life, he decided to get the reproduction rights for the rare Fabricius & Kastholm Grasshopper chair from the 1960s, a long-time obsession of his. On Kastholm’s end of the deal, he wanted Lange to reintroduce the entire line and meet their original standards of quality. To do this, Lange worked from the original warehouse with the original tools. Lange Production’s re-launch was met with glowing reviews. On getting his company off the ground, Lange says, “I didn’t see it as ‘taking a risk.’ Not doing what makes you happy everyday is a risk. People should spend more time on their passions. All great companies are built on passion.”
