In HAGEN ETC. we are always looking for new challenges and communities with ambitious minds.

This has led to a series of activities that have taken us further. Among other the Exhibitions with SE / Snedkernes Efterårsudstilling in 2012 and 2013 as for different installation projects on a large scale and Pop Up wall-exhibition.

The latest exhibition we attended was Extremely as part of the design group danish designMAKERS in Stockholm in 2017.

The 2017 Stokholm exhibition has been the latest experience at HAGEN ETC. We attended in the Extremely project with the design group danish designMAKERS introducing the cork lounge chair Bark.


From skyline to desk.

The path to a new product often begins with experiences that are far removed from the end-product. Designers Rikke Hagen and Andreas Lund joined SE together for the first time in 2012.

When designers Rikke Hagen and Andreas Lund set out to design a piece of furniture for the Cabinetmaker’s Autumn Exhibition 2013, their creative process took them via the New York skyline.

The result was a desk – or a working table – where the tabletop mimics the water surface, while the stackable boxes embedded in the tabletop evoke the skyline. Or that is how the project began, but during the process the designers were swept up by their playful approach and the desire to surprise.

The designed duo co-operation with Garde Hvalsøe A/S on this exhibition.

Snedkernes Efterårsudstilling began in 2012 with The Model

The cooperation between Andreas Lund and Rikke Hagen began with The Model. An experiment between controlled geometric design counter organic free formulations. Organic concrete canvas shells worn in scaffolding of oak strips bound together with mason cord – An experiment on statics.

Working in big scales

When working with larger projects, it is often necessary to involve other competences such as architects and construction engineers for the coordination of processes to eventually to succeed.


This lighting installation is 9 meters high and passes between 2 levels. It weights 1 tonnes. This requires calms demands for mounting and roof contructions.

Taking the space

12 tall glass columns – totem poles – each with its story carried out with various techniques occupyed the space in front of the old glassworks at Holmegaard.

Each column tells its own story about the designers and artists who worked at the glassfactory n the past and their techniques which became their signature in the way of working with glass.

As totem poles the columns mark the square of the entrance to the factory.



As a repetition of a rhythm.

We want to create, explore and inspire each other at exhibitions and fairs. Danish design is deeply rooted in our understanding craftsmanship and materials. So is Rikke Hagen. Her  work in class has been an inspiration at exhibitions and fairs throughout the years.
