The Arctic means a lot to founder Michael Witt Johansen from Denmark, as his father traveled to Greenland and the Faroer Islands as a salesman for more than 25 years, bringing stories and images from there which have been a very important part of his life.
His trips to Greenland enabled him to create great memories by experiencing the spectacular nature.
A cornerstone of the BERING story is Michael Witt Johansen‘s friend and cofounder René Kaerskov who parachute jumped on the North Pole. The purpose for this jump was to raise public awareness for the global warming by promoting the “Earth Hour”.
When René sent Michael his photos from his journey to the Northpole, it was two stories coming together to one idea. It’s BERING Time!
Michael Witt Johansen and his former business partner Lars Gram- Skjønnemann started developing the BERING Design Concept „inspired by arctic beauty“. It’s a combination of the Arctic beauty and the root elements of the world-famous, modern, timeless Danish-design.
