Hygge

The Danish word "Hygge" means "a warm and comfortable atmosphere born from contact between people". This word is not found in any other language, and uniquely describes the Danish frame of mind.

The people of Denmark say that "Hygge" comes from treasuring their own individual lifestyles and ways of thinking, which in turn gives birth to the feeling of compassion towards others.

The Andersen Group decided on its theme "Hygge for Life" when Andersen Hiroshima underwent renovation in 1988. Since then, these words symbolize our products, services and everything about our shops, which are all brought over from Denmark.
