BODUM®, a family owned company, was founded in 1944 in Copenhagen, Denmark by Peter Bodum. He designed the vacuum coffee maker Santos. Santos was internationally acclaimed for its unique design and in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s it became one of the most important coffee makers worldwide. In 1974, the 26-year-old Jørgen Bodum, the founder’s son, took over the BODUM® Company. Already in 1974, Jørgen Bodum manifested the company’s philosophy of design with the launch of BODUM®’s first coffee press – Bistro.
Four years later, the new CEO Jørgen Bodum, moved the company to Switzerland to strategically locate BODUM® in central Europe. In 1991, the ASSAM teapot was developed for the British Tea Council. Since 1974 BODUM® has produced more than 100 million of French Coffee Presses and 30 million teapots. Today BODUM® offers its customers everything from the latest coffee and tea making products to tabletops, kitchen, storage, textiles, home and office products. The BODUM® Group is a 100% family-owned business. Today, it is owned by Pia Bodum and Jørgen Bodum, daughter and son of the founder Peter Bodum. BODUM® is now more than ever focused on the further development of shop-in-shops. BODUM®’s products are sold in 55 countries; there are 20 BODUM® stores worldwide and many more shop-in-shops.
BBQ – it’s a man’s world. That’s what men think anyway, with that friendly banter about who has the best marinade recipe and whether the steak needs to be seasoned before or after. (Any woman knows it’s simply salt and pepper before.) Barbecuing might very well be the only chance you’ll ever get to wear the combination of an apron and gloves without looking silly. And then there are all those nice BBQ toys to play with – it’s gonna be a field day.
The FYRKAT Picnic charcoal grill is a perfect fit for terraces, porches and even the back of your car so you can take your BBQ wherever the mood strikes you. Its body is made from enamel coated steel, its legs from chrome plated steel. The handle is made from heat-resistant silicone. Its diameter is just perfect for your favorite piece of meat or fish. Or sausages, for that matter. And for the health conscious among us – it grills veggies just fine as well.
