The new black for over 160 years
– When you close your eyes today and think of Morsø, you probably see the image of a cosy, hot wood-burning stove. But Morsø started somewhere completely different. When Niels Andreas Christensen (N.A Christensen) started Morsø Foundry in 1853, it was for the production of all sorts of products, from stable windows, grave crosses and tools to saucepans, pots and pans.
Wood-burners and tiled stoves only came later, around the turn of the century, when Morsø began to produce and provide tiled stoves and heaters to schools, churches, the railways, ministries and not least to the royal household. This put Morsø seriously on the map, and in 1915 Morsø received the coveted title of Purveyor to the Royal Court.
A particularly warm and cosy feeling
In the 1950’s, the tiled stoves were replaced by central heating, but this just made space for wood-burning stoves in which you can see the flames, giving a special warm and cosy feeling, and with which the stove and the heat fulfil more than one function. Today Morsø has developed into a global design company that brings warmth and comfort to homes around the world.
Part of food history
In 2015, Morsø launched an entirely new series of kitchen equipment which enhances the experience both in the kitchen and at the table, and of course made of black cast iron like all other Morsø products. In that context, it is amusing to think that Morsø at one time also started by producing saucepans, pots and pans, while the Copco model S.5 has become a design classic at a high level and virtually defines a “saucepan”. In 2012, Morsø launched their first Forno Outdoor Oven, which is also a comfort source of note, excellent for food preparation and already a design icon.
