Founder Malte Gormsen, started his journey at Snedkermester/Master Cabinet maker Niels Roth Andersen where he crafted handmade Danish furniture classics from renowned designers such as Finn Juhl and Vestergaard-Jensen. After completed apprenticeship and as a fully trained cabinet maker, Malte decided to pursue his own business. He started off making custom made kitchens for private homes. After a few years the business developed and began to take on larger scale projects and eventually the client base went from predominately private to business clients.
Today, Malte Gormsen Ltd. has been around for 20 years and the company has grown to include our own workshop, a drawing office with an architect, project planners and designers, and our own development crew. As such, we are able to handle a wide variety of tasks – from designing and manufacturing to turnkey contracting the development of entire venues from start to finish.
In our fully equipped and modern workshop, we have twenty highly skilled craftsmen who handle everything from wood and brass to zinc and ceramic components with uncompromising focus on quality. Here we live by our philosophy to combine Danish craftsmanship traditions with the latest technology. And the process includes everything from our five axis CNC machine to final touch by hand using sandpaper.
In our drawing office we have our own development crew with a combined skill-set of architecture, project planning and design. This is where each project takes shape, by developing complete CAD and 3D production drawings, covering the smallest details. Often we have to create tailor-made innovations and solutions to match the clients wants and needs - resulting in durable, functional and aesthetic productions of the highest quality. We handle a wide range of projects and are used to close collaborations with external architects, designers and suppliers as well as handling our own projects from scratch.
We have a genuine passion for material, and therefore it is key to us that the essence of each individual material comes through. Malte Gormsen started out as a cabinetmaker and woodworking is still at the heart of everything we do. However, we are devoting a lot of time to testing and developing new techniques and materials including metals, stone, glass – even plastic and ceramics. At our workshop we continuously experiment with ageing techniques to develop the precise finish your design requires. We will help and guide you in the process of choosing the material to get the best result and to meet the aesthetic values as well as meeting the budget - without losing the quality feel.
Successfully launching a new venue such as a high-end boutique or a hotel requires partners with experience. At Malte Gormsen, we have the expertise in design, architecture, craftsmanship and development that allows us to counsel you and give competent feedback. Our solutions are always individually tailored and hand-crafted to suit our client’s exact needs. No matter the size, our goal is to perfect every project design through dialogue, so that once we move on to construction, your mind is at ease and you can focus on all the other details that require your attention.
QUALITY IS KEY
Working all over the world, we pride ourselves in our ability to deliver top quality craftsmanship on schedule. We have solution-oriented approach and we believe in trust and long term relationships with our clients, most of whom, we are happy to say, are regulars. When you trust us with your project – whether it is the manufacture of a unique piece of furniture, the total design and development of an entire venue or anything in between – we will have an ongoing dialogue throughout the process from start to delivery. Always focusing on precision and high quality.
