Every now and then, unforeseen and coincidental moments end up changing history. A few years back, the Danish furniture joinery Risskov Møbelsnedkeri experienced one of those moments. Risskov Møbelsnedkeri had for many years been a small joinery making high-quality furniture for private customers and furniture stores in Denmark, until an Australian furniture salesman showed up on its doorstep alongside Danish architect Kai Kristiansen. “He owned two shops in Australia called Great Dane, and he was looking for someone to cooperate with. He wanted us to manufacture the design of some of Kai Kristiansen’s furniture for his shops in Australia, as he had heard good things about us and how we worked with the materials,” says cabinetmaker Per Andersen, who owns Risskov Møbelsnedkeri together with his partner, Leif Jensen.
