"Good design doesn't have to be expensive" - Peter Bodum.

BODUM, a family owned company, was founded in 1944 in Copenhagen, Denmark by Peter Bodum. The founder succeeded in positioning BODUM internationally already in the 1960's owing to his unique concept: development of products, which consistently pay tribute to functionality, quality and affordability. At BODUM's early stage, the founder recognized the importance of industrial design and this visionary approach laid the groundwork for what BODUM stands for today.

In 1992, BODUM entered the field of electrical household products. The IBIS water kettle was the first in a long line of simple as well as highly sophisticated electrical kitchen equipment. Since 1974 BODUM has produced more than 100 million of French Coffee Presses and 30 million teapots. BODUM continues to broaden its collection of beautifully designed everyday life 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 has its holding company and the BODUM Design Group consisting of PI-Design in Switzerland and its own production company in Portugal. BODUM’s other offices are based in Humlebæk (Denmark), Tokyo and New York and the sales companies are located in Hong Kong as well as in Shanghai.
