Meet us

Nicolaj Bo has gathered a team of enthusiasts with a special interest in the craft traditions of the profession. We all have a deep love for the product and a shared vision of creating kitchens and furniture that we can be proud of for years to come.

Our combined design studio and workshop can be found in an old warehouse in the Sydhavnen area of Copenhagen. This ensures a close collaboration through both the design phase and production. Besides, it creates a unique social working environment. Everyone knows everyone, and we each day meet for an hour-long lunch break at the communal long table – taking the opportunity to enjoy good food, discuss ongoing projects or take a swim in the nearby canal.

Administration, HR, PR, and many other abbreviations besides. A woman of letters from the University of Roskilde and self-taught potter. Works with our visual appearance and is always ready to throw a critical look at our creations to keep us on track. Part-time winter bather and a strong proponent of our weekly yoga sessions.

Rolf Dylsing Nielsen

With a background as chef and owner of the restaurant Madsvinet, Rolf today takes on kitchens from a new angle and in a new guise – namely that of a shop and event manager. His relationship with customers is guided by his excellent taste and passion for good quality.

Kevin Hviid

As an architect, Kevin has worked with design and interior planning in a large variety of contexts and extents. Some of his own furniture designs have won awards and have featured in exhibitions over several continents. Kevin wields his flair for interior design when diving into the possibilities of designing the spaces in your own home.

Allan Torp
A true design connoisseur. Through his blog, Allan has found inspiration and written about design at home and abroad for more than 10 years. He has published books and designed furniture for Danish brands. When guiding customers, he draws upon his many insights and has a very singular sense for creating inviting interior solutions.
Malene Berger
Trained as a classic architect, Malene has international experience in designing showrooms for big brands in Asia. In the last few years, however, the focus has turned towards Denmark and residential homes. Thinking in space and possibilities is a given with Malene, and with her by your side, you get much more than a kitchen design. When she is not designing kitchens, she sketches on her con amore project ‘Samsø Havnebad’.
Rasmus Nyborg
Procurement and B2B. Rasmus is a trained cabinet maker, but due to his positive energy and innnovative thinking his position quickly developed from the workshop floor to being responsible for procurement and opimisation of production, with a focus on sustainability. Beyond this, he is our point-man for architects and builders, where kitchen designs for larger projects are on the agenda.
Andreas Borne

Construction and Project Manager. Andreas exchanged the rough nature on the island of Bornholm, for an urban life in Copenhagen just to be a part of Nicolaj Bo. He has several educational backgrounds to draw upon – carpenter, commercial psychologist and self-taught guitar-builder. These are qualities and competencies that come in handy when juggling projects and customers.

Sune Bundgaard Rasmussen

Construction and Project Coordinator. Like Lucky Luke with a phone – he works in tandem with customers and all relevant tradespeople. He is constantly on the move, whether at the office or at the site – and always in workwear if the projet require additional manpower.

Anne Marie Kobberø

Trained as an architect, Anne has worked on projects large and small in the fields of design and architecture. With enthusiasm and focus, she has recently expanded into spatial design and furniture. With attention to detail at the drawing table, Anne ensures everything comes together.

Claes Hammer Kristensen

As Design Engineer, Claes is the natural extension of our design office. When it comes to mechanical details, he makes sure special wishes are clearly translated into reality. Claes can condense the work routines of our cabinet makers to an easily understandable formula. Apart from that, he is an enthusiastic bread maker.

Kirstine Lehmann
Technical designer. Kirstine has been an intern with us earlier, so she was warmly weclomed back when she applied for a proper job with us. Naturally imbued with a calmness typical of her Northern Jutlandic origin, she prepares complex projects for production with systematic and precise method.
Louise Kragh Olsen

Administration and Logistics Manager. Louise provides overview over the most complex situations regarding procuration, order management and project coordination. Apart from her obvious talents at the office, she possesses some remarkable bowling skills.

Andreas Nathan

Head of Production and Cabinet Maker. A calm hand at the CNC machine, he is always running some project. If Andreas cannot fix stuff himself, he knows someone who can. Senior member of the winter bathing club.

Lars Bille Christensen

Nestor among cabinet makers. This is the guy who makes all the pieces come together in the end and gives the kitchens their finishing touches. His thoroughness makes you want to keep him in your kitchen.

Rasmus Kjær Larsen

Cabinet Maker and Head Installer. As an atheist Viking, Rasmus likes to engage in a little lighthearted combat with other vikings and is a dedicated collector of motorized tools. Owner of the tallest known private tower of Festool products.

Dennis Klitgaard

As a seasoned furniture maker from historic Rud Rasmussen Company, Dennis ensures exeptional craftsmanship with a jaw-dropping finish. Incidentally, he’s also two-time Nordic Champion in 100 metre sprint: 1.0927 minutes.

Niels Tyge

Niels is the cabinet maker leading the generational shift in CNC production. He was already entrepreneur at the age of jus 13, so he is well suited to the task. Despite being probably the calmest of us all, Niels likes to ride his speedway motorcycle and is seasoned on the one-wheeled bicycle.

Kai Hempel

Cabinet Maker. Kai brings a German touch to the workshop, with ‘ordnung muss sein’ and a big smile. He is full of good humour and ideas for how to optimize our processes. He is also a bit of a kid and likes to use his lunch break to air his home-built model race car or cast his fishing rod in the nearby canal.

Flemming Birk Bitzer

Cabinet Maker. Varnishes, surfaces, and finishes are Flemming’s specialty. He is the man who, with his sharp eye for detail, makes sure that all kitchen fronts, shelves, etc. are top tuned before they get their final treatment. His sense for the small details is also at stake at home where he patiently shapes and creates small green works of Bonsai art.

Nicklas Philip Klemming-Schmidt

As a cabinetmaker, Nicklas is in charge of our surface department. With a neat and safe hand, he prepares all surfaces and ensures the most beautiful and perfect veneer transitions in our kitchen fronts. In addition to training in furniture building, he has also studied design development and entrepreneurship and dreams of one day being able to realize some of his own designs.

Nicolaj Engelbreth Nielsen

Trained as a Cabinet Maker, Nicolaj has undergone further training with us to work the CNC. Here he helps to create a continuous flow in the milling of the Nicolaj Bo signature handle. Before he took on wood craftsmanship, he worked with graphic art and website design. The desire to design and create something from scratch has always been an innate part of him.

Daniel Grasenack-Tente
Our global citizen craftsman: Born and raised in New Zealand by German parents, Daniel now lives in Denmark with his own little family. His primary focus is sustainability, quality and precision, which fits well with our own values. His CNC expertise is especially valued. Whether he’s making kitchens or basketball backboards, the whole team benefits.
Katrine Jørgensen

Katrine is our very own cabinet maker – a title we like to use because she underwent her training with us and therefore is schooled entirely in the Nicolaj Bo kitchen. Creativity lies in her blood and early on woodworking was her favourite subject at school. Therefore, it is no surprise that she has chosen joinery as her livelihood.

Carla McCollin

Cabinet maker apprentice. It can be hard to tell if you only just met her, but Carla is somewhat of a mariner. She has travelled across the Atlantic Sea and back with the renowned training frigate Georg Stage. With her smiling personality, she’s full speed ahead gaining experience within the trade. And who knows – it might not be a coincidence that she opted for a work-place with a view out to sea..?

Louis Axel Froberg

Louis is our very first wood machinist apprentice. Like all our apprentices, it is important he gets his fingers well-covered in sawdust and allowed to work with a little bit of everything in the workshop. When not using his time in the workshop, he’s sure to be engrossed in a good book or perhaps two at the same time. In fact, he is so into books that he has also taken up writing himself. He’s currently working on drafting the ultimate apprentice manual.

Cornelia Maria Rymer Andersen
Cabinet maker apprentice. With a joiner for a mother some would say it was only natural that Cornelia followed in mum’s footsteps. Inititally, Cornelia had other plans. However, when during her sabbatical year she paid her way working at a joinery, it turned out she enjoyed woodworking so much that it soon became clear it indeed was the trade she was most drawn to.
Mette Berthu Skov
Cabinet making apprentice. Mette startet as an untrained labourer and took to her tasks with a natural and good-humoured approach that you just don’t see every day. We were therefore very happy to hear that she went for a more permanent station, taking the step to become an apprentice. She has a mind and thirst for learning that will definitely take her wherever she wants to go.
Untrained handyman. Mikael showed up one winter’s day when activity at the workshop was peaking to give his good friend – our production foreman – a hand. He’s been an invaluable member of the team ever since, as he has made the packing station his own. Mikael is also known for keeping the party going longest, likely dressed in animal print, and is a social organiser of camping trips and film viewing arrangements.
Elias Haslund-Gjerrild

Untrained workman. Elias is our very own octopus, helping out wherever needed. Whether it be carefully sanding edges of kitchen cupboards, packing products or helping with installing kitchens at the customer – Elias is onto it! At the same time, he’s ruminating on how to make the world a better place. The result of that is his own company, GodTid, which has specialized in creating up-cycled furniture and accessories.
