At Dansk Wilton there is a connection between art and the creation of custom designed carpets.

Great artists have an eye for details, proportions and colours, which are equally important in the creation of durable, high quality carpet solutions.

In the 90s, it became important to our founder Johannes Jensen to have a landmark, which could be seen from faraway. Earlier collaborations with the Danish painter and sculptor Paul Gadegaard made it clear for Johannes Jensen that  Paul Gadegaard was the right man for this job as well.

Paul Gadegaard was the creator of the design, and Johannes Jensen helped with the practical things in the process. Unfortunately, Paul Gadegaard never came to see the final result. He died in March 1992. Nevertheless, the work continued after his death. Johannes Jensen followed the design descriptions from Paul Gadegaard, and finished the sculpture in 1993.

Over time, the sculpture has become a trademark for Dansk Wilton and today it is the Dansk Wilton logo, as we know it.
