Illums Bolighus was originally founded in 1925 under the name of BO.
The man behind BO was the Danish entrepreneur Kaj Dessau, who was blessed with a strong sense of aesthetics as well as a flair for business.Working with his artistic consultant Brita Drewsen, he created a concept that had never been seen before: a store with arranged and furnished interiors, where textiles, appointments, and furniture all interacted as art.
The exceptional foresight displayed by both Drewsen and Dessau, as well as their impeccable sense of style and quality, played an important role in the international acclaim long accorded to Danish interior design.
Architect MAA Kay Kørbing designed the facade of Illums Bolighus in 1961, stylish and classic with an understated extravagance on the busy square of Amagertorv in the heart of Copenhagen.
