Kähler Design

Kähler is a Danish ceramics company which for generations has created vases, dishes, pots and kitchenware, many of which have become collectors’ items and design icons. Kähler’s story began in 1839, when the Holstein potter Herman J. Kähler opened a small ceramics workshop in the city of Næstved. However, it was not until his sons, Herman A. Kähler and Carl F. Kähler, took over the workshop in 1875 that the ceramics production of Kähler was put on the world map.

With production of international art ceramics, the groundwork was laid for one of the greatest successes in Danish ceramics history.  Since its foundation Kähler has been showing its works of art at exhibitions and museums all over the world and the artistic commitment attracted many distinguished Danish artists, such as Thorvald Bindesbøll, Svend Hammershøj and Kai Nielsen.

Today, Kähler takes the best from Danish artistic ceramic heritage and interprets it in a contemporary light. Today artists such as Louise Campbell, Bjørn Poulsen and Jeanette List Amstrup carry on the tradition of Kähler – with the ambition of bringing art to the people.
