150 years of tradition in manufacturing recognizes Gense as one of Europe's largest suppliers of cutlery. Gense was established in 1856 by Gustav Erikson and is today one of Scandinavia's largest producers of stainless steel cutlery. The Gense trademark is founded on respect for traditions, and the rich complexity of craftsmanship.
Many years of collaboration with well-known designers has resulted in a collection of classical, innovative, and functional cutleries, always respecting the material — the highest quality of stainless steel. The Gense concept has helped set the standard for Scandinavian design.
Folke Arström (1907-1997) was a Swedish artist and an early modernist industrial designer who specialized in metal flatware and kitchenware. He opened his own studio in 1934 and is known for some of his beautiful Art Deco pieces, including a chrome and bakelite cocktail shaker he created while he worked for Guldsmedsaktiebolaget (GAB) in Stockholm from 1936 to 1949. He also designed for Edlund's Silver Factory Ltd. (BHE) in Stockholm during that time. In 1940 he took a position as creative manager with A. B. Gense, where he worked for the next 20 years. Some of Arström's best known designs are Focus De Luxe, Facette and Attache. Gense still produces these lines today.
