About us

From the small town Esbjerg
to the wide world and back again

Bruunmunch is the brand of Henrik Bruun and Jacob Munch from the small town of Esbjerg. The two have known each other for most of their lives. They grew up in the same town, became friends, and painted together with childlike enthusiasm. After graduating from school, Henrik moved to the big city of Copenhagen, where he worked in the fashion industry. 

The beginning 

At some point, Jacob was drawn out into the world - first to Copenhagen for a few years, then later to South America. Far away from his Danish home, Jacob started to draw his first furniture designs. With the idea to start his own business after returning to Denmark.

It was in the middle of South America, via a pay phone, that Henrik and Jacob began to make concrete business plans together for the first time. Here, on the phone between Denmark and South America, the idea for Bruunmunch was born.

Skies above the sea.

Seas stirring sand. Sand assailing shores to sculpt the future. Sand, land, wind, water, and weather create an identity for Jacob Munch and Henrik Bruun – creators of the furniture brand, Bruunmunch. 

Bruun & Munch

Founded in 2008 by the two childhood friends Jacob Munch and Henrik Bruun. The two sober minded owners from the southern part of Denmark have known each other since the age of five. Their pursuit for perfection was failing to be met when it came to furniture so they decided to make their own, and form a company with an uncompromising approach to design and quality.Bruunmunch has developed dramatically from the early days. But the processes within production has not changed since the first piece of furniture was created by the two owners from Esbjerg.
