Jonas Krüger (JK), Brdr. Krüger
A lot has happened since Brdr. Krüger was established as a woodturning company in 1886, but the dedication to craftmanship and passion for wood has not changed.
Today Brdr. Krüger is self-productive design brand with a design DNA founded in the Danish modern traditions of the last century, but reinterpreted for a new audience. With a design philosophy urging the playful, the original and the honest, Brdr. Krüger strives to contribute with a new twist on tradition in a close creative collaboration with designers and architects.
