Meet Barlby Carlsson


Om Barlby Carlsson

Industrial designer Jens-Christian Carlsson has created a collective and international design adventure, revolving around superior craftsmansship. Barlby Carlsson is located on Christianshavn, Copenhagen, and was established in 2006.

Curiosity, care, commitment and love of craftsmansship are some of the words that characterise Barlby Carlsson and the 12 designers, architects, furniture builders, graphic artists and project managers the agency employs.

An inclusive design agency with a keen sense for detail from inception to production.

We concentrate on rooms, spaces, their moods and potential – down to the smallest detail. We listen carefully to our clients’ wishes and agree on the whole together. If we’re unable to find the right furniture for an interior design assignment, we design and produce them ourselves. The opening our store in Copenhagen allows us to focus even more on designing and producing furniture. However, this does not mean the end of our work with spatial experiences, far from it. We will always have projects on our drawing boards with wide and varied scopes: From exposition stands, shop design, public spaces and utility items to our own furniture designs.

At Barlby Carlsson we uphold proud traditions for exquisite craftsmansship. Our wholehearted love of forgotten cabinet maker’s traditions and local materials characterise a number of projects created in our workshop on Refshaleøen in Copenhagen. Wood takes center stage and is processed in our complete wood workshop. At the same address we have large storage facilities and parking spaces for our vans. Our graphic workshop has been merged with our studio on Christianshavn. We have good friends to help us take care of industral lacquering, metal- and plasticworks. All of this means that we can take full responsibility for any project, from the first conceptual drawing to project design, documentation, installation, break-down and storage of ie an exposition stand. We follow the project all the way. Every time.

In November 2014 the doors opened to our store under our own name in Holbergsgade 22 in Copenhagen. The store is an introduction to the world of Barlby Carlsson and our vision for a new future. This means a no-thanks to products created with a throw-away mentality – and a yes-please to all things simple, exquisite and well thought through. In the store you can get close to the creation and the thoughts behind all of our products. Welcome.
