VEJRHØJ is founded by the young entrepreneur, Janus Aarup, who set out to create a collection of wooden watches based on his passion for design, craftsmanship and timepieces. The first small collection was created, while Janus still was working on his master’s thesis regarding the rise of Danish design.
GETTING EXPERIENCE ON BOARD
In the summer 2014 we teamed up with the grand old man of Danish design, Bo Bonfils, known for his classic Georg Jensen designs. Together we spent a year designing, building and testing a new line of VEJRHØJ watches, where we combined wood and steel with a distinctive maritime touch. In late 2015 we launched the collection through Kickstarter where we fortunate enough to raise over 100.000 USD in 30 days through the help from customers from more than 38 countries.
Currently, we are working on a new collection of watches. You can sign up for our newsletter if you want to get notified, when we have exciting news.
