SS 2017 Catalogue

Bruunmunch was founded in 2008 by the two childhood friends Jacob Munch
and Henrik Bruun. The two soberminded owners from the southern part of
Denmark have known each other since the age of five. And with this as a
starting point, the company got its platform of values which only comes with
a lifelong friendship.
The keywords for the two Danish guys are quality, an uncompromising
approach and the love of design.
The two owners therefore demand that each product must be of such a
quality that they would be happy to have it in their own homes - because
their customers should only have the best.
Bruunmunch has experienced a steady growth over the last couple of years.
But the processes within the house have not changed since the first piece of
furniture was created by the two owners from Esbjerg.
Every single business partner - from the manufacturer and the retailer to the
freight company which delivers the product to your door - has been carefully
chosen by the two childhood friends.

Bruunmunch’s furniture is Danish in
expression, design and production.
A stone’s throw from Lemvig Fjord you will find the wood manufacturer where
all Bruunmunch furniture is made. The large, old factory buildings are filled with
the scent of wood. An oak tree may be up to 40 metres high.
For the quality-conscious, this is a reliable choice for furniture manufacturing.
Oak is not only used because it is durable, but also because it gives a visual
experience. Oak possesses a beautiful colour palette and also a glow which
adds unique shades to the expression.
Oak contains substances which provide resistance to wear and rot, and with
a closed structure, it is almost impossible for water to penetrate and destroy it.
The employees at the factory all have years of experience working with wood.
The hands which persistently work with the wood and the Bruunmunch
furniture, work from old traditions of fine Danish craftsmanship.
Quality, thoroughness, meticulousness and pride are values that go hand in
hand with the manufacturing in the old timber workshop. The sound of the
teeth on the saw which bite the oak, the scent of wood and the eyes that
focus all melt together with Bruunmunch’s preferred and carefully chosen
Danish manufacturer.
It is important to Jacob Munch and Henrik Bruun that their wood furniture is
manufactured in Denmark at a Danish company with traditions. All products
are marked with a numbered stainless steel badge.
WOOD PRODUCTION

First trained as a cabinetmaker, Volther
studied furniture design at the Arts and
Crafts School in Copenhagen. A believer
in Functionalism, he avoided short-lived
aesthetic trends, concentrating on the
simple crafting of fine materials. As a
teacher at Denmark’s Design School,
he encouraged hundreds of students
to aim for high quality craftsmanship.
He also designed a wide variety of
armchairs and sofas which can still be
seen in homes throughout Denmark.
The new smoked oak from Bruunmunch adds warmth and depth to the collection
that fits today’s more glamorous Parisian style. Amongst high panels, patterned
wallpaper and luxurious colours, smoked oak complements the atmosphere.
The strength of the wood gives the table a sophisticated character.
