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.
Henning Seidelin started out as a sculptor — one of the best known in Denmark. His naturalistic groups of figures testify to a marked feeling for mass in space, and some have bold edges that demonstrate his sure instinct for composition.
Henning Seidelin evolved into an industrial designer and created classics in cutlery, kitchenware and dinner services, with continued success designing furniture, stoves and more.
