Danish Fuel Jerry Cans are a tribut to a 75 glorious years of World history. The original design of the Jerry Can are very unique. So we decided to keep the lines as they are. Sticked to the upcycling methods.

THE TEAM... CONTINUE READING

A strong team is essential behind every successful design.

Danish Fuel saw the light of day in 2010 with their first prototype. Slowly but surely, in 2016, there were more than 60 combinations for putting your own unique Danish Fuel Jerry Can together which includes the Bar Cabinet, First Aid Station, Bathroom cabinet, and Trolley suitcase. Frank & René Sundahl are designing the series of Danish Fuel Jerry Cans. Each and everyone is coming up with various ideas to contribute. From the idea, design, and first prototype, developing the design is an ongoing process with optimizing all designs to reach the highest standard for the brand.

Note to Self:

If we only knew what a journey it would be to reach the highest quality, we would never have been able to start at all! Knowing how difficult it was to make complicated designs seem so simple and put the Danish Fuel brand into production was a great challenge. But, at the time we were a little naive and thinking, “How hard can it be to make a table? It´s just a plate and four pieces of wood, right?”
