150 years of tradition in manufacturing cutlery recognizes Gense as one of Europe’s largest suppliers of cutlery. Gense was established in 1856 by Gustav Eriksson and is today one of Scandinavia’s largest producers of stainless steel cutlery. All over the world, the Gense brand is associated with high quality cutlery. All Gense cutlery adds beauty to your everyday life, and is distinguished by innovative design.
Gense is an acronym for Gustaf Eriksson NySilverfabrik i Eskilstuna. Gustaf Eriksson, who established the company in 1856 in Eskilstuna, was a specialised craftsman in making doors for tiled ovens. It was not until his son Axel Eriksson took over the business in 1885 that Gense took the crucial step and extended its range to include cutlery and silver plated tableware.
Since the early decades of the twentieth century, Gense has collaborated with designers who have worked with burning enthusiasm alongside the craftsmen, one of the distinctive features of the famous Swedish industrial art, where artistry, craftsmanship and technical discoveries go hand in hand.
Form and function come together in Gense products. Since the beginning of the twentieth century, Gense has been associated with well-known designers. The Gense trademark is founded on respect for traditions, and the rich complexity of craftsmanship. Many years of co-operation with well-known designers has resulted in the development of a series of classical, innovative, and functional cutleries, always respecting the material – the highest quality of stainless steel. The Gense concept has even participated in setting the standard for Scandinavian design. By balanced styling, the cutlery creates a good synergy in your hands. They are wear-resistant and of course they go straight into the dishwasher.
