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. Here you have the opportunity to enjoy good food, discuss ongoing projects or take a swim in the nearby canal.

He has several educations to draw upon – carpenter, industrial psychologist and self-made guitar-builder. All qualities and competencies that come in handy when juggling projects and customers.
Sune Bundgaard Rasmussen
Construction and project coordinator. He’s a Lucky Luke with a phone. He works in tandem with customers and all relevant craftsmen. He’s on his way, at the office or at the site – and always in workwear if the scene requires ekstra manpower.
Anne Marie Kobberø

As a 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 concentrate the work routines of our carpenters to an easily understandable formula. Apart from that, he is an enthusiastic bread maker.
Louise Kragh Olsen

Niels Tyge
Niels is a furniture maker who, having started as an entrepreneur at only 13, is heading the generational shift on the CNC. Despite being probably the calmest one in the house, Niels likes to ride his speedway motorcycle and is seasoned on the one-wheeled bicycle.
Mikkel Vestergaard Thomsen
Mikkel is an experienced cabinetmaker. Except for a few years in ‘the real world’, he has been part of the Nicolaj Bo production from the very start. With a firm hand, he controls the CNC and makes sure that the machinery does its job properly. Mikkel is somewhat of a food connoisseur. When he’s part of the lunch team we’re thus often treated with well-cooked stew or chilli con carne.
Molly Bess Taylor

Molly is our cabinetmaker who is partially trained under the sun and wind of Hawaii. Here she tried her hand working with exotic dark woods and American design tradition. Luckily for us, she returned to Denmark and us, so her sense of quality and her keen eye for order can ensure the flow of our series production. She is the one that gives our tables, shelves and other products the last check before sending them off safely to the customer.

Kai Hempel
Cabinetmaker. Kai is our German touch, who with ‘ordnung muss sein’ and a big smile keeps track of our paint shop. He is full of good humour and ideas for how we can 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 use his fishing rod in the nearby canal.
Flemming Birk Bitzer
Cabinetmaker. Varnishes, surfaces and finishes are Flemming’s speciality. 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 Bonzai 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 carpentry training, 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 carpenter, but in our production, he has been master trained to work the CNC machine. 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. So the desire to design and create something from scratch has always been an innate part of him.
Katrine Jørgensen
Katrine is one of our skilled cabinet maker apprentices. Creativity lies in her blood and early on wood-making was her favourite subject at school. Therefore, it is no surprise that she has chosen joinery as her future livelihood. Her creativity has no limits and is lived out after work hours, through drawings and paintings. Lately, she has found a new way to express herself – through show dance.
Carla McCollin
Cabinet maker apprentices. It’s hard to see if you don’t already know it, but Carla is somewhat of a mariner. She has travelled across the Atlantic Sea and back again with the renowned training ship 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 working place with a view of the sea..?
Louis Axel Froberg
Louis is our very first wood cutting machinist apprentice. Like all our apprentices, he must have his fingers well-dusted with sawdust and be allowed to work with a little bit of everything in the workshop. When not using his time in the workshop, you can find engaged in a good book or maybe two at the same time. In fact, he is so into books that he has also taken upon writing himself. At the moment he’s working on writing the ultimate apprentice manual.
Elias Haslund-Gjerrild

Unskilled workman. Elias is our very own octopus – helping out where-ever it is needed. Whatever it is carefully grinding edges of kitchen cupboards, packing products or helping with mounting kitchens at customers – Elias got 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 called GodTid which has specialized in creating up-cycled furniture and accessories.
