Bodum was founded by Peter Bodum in 1944 following World War II. The company, in Copenhagen Denmark established the brand’s core philosophy that form should follow function.

In 1958 Bodum introduced their first product, the Santos Vacuum Coffee Maker. Internationally acclaimed for its unique design, the Santos remains a popular coffee maker.

In 1974 Jorgen Bodum, the founder’s son took over as CEO of the company. That same year he introduced Bodum’s first French press coffee maker, the Bistro.

Since 1974 Bodum has produced more than 120 million French press coffee makers and 30 million teapots, and continue to broaden their collection of beautifully designed products.
