Bodums mission is pure and simple. They aim to bring high quality coffee and tea solutions and household accessories to everyone, in line with your values. Bodum innovate to create great designs at affordable prices based on our guiding principle that form follows functionality, while keeping an eye on sustainability, environmental responsibility, and respect for the wellbeing of staff, communities, and the planet.
The BODUM story begins in Copenhagen, Denmark, where Peter Bodum founded the company in 1944, and is still being written today by his son, Jørgen Bodum, the current CEO, who co-owns the company with his sister Pia Bodum, ensuring that the BODUM Group remains a 100% family-owned business.
In the early 1950s, Bodum produced MOCCA, BODUM’s first vacuum coffee maker, before releasing the SANTOS vacuum coffee maker in 1958.
In 1974, Bodum made an immediate impact with the launch of BODUM’s first French coffee press, the Bistro, merging BODUM traditions with fresh innovation.
Since 1980, Bodum have their own team of designers, engineers, graphic designers and architects being responsible for all BODUM product designs, staying true to the tradition of functionality and quality, with a focus on innovation.
Today, the BODUM range has expanded further to include other kitchen and household products, including cookware and cutlery, storage items, textiles, and other home and office products.
