This is us!

An invitation to a richer life

At Flying Tiger Copenhagen, we don’t design to make products look nice. We design to make people feel good.

Whether we are designing extraordinary products for everyday life, or making everyday products look extraordinary, we want to bring you something that can bring you closer to someone else.

Things that make you smile. Gifts you’ll want to give. Stuff you feel the urge to try and desperately want to share with others.

Because real value lies not in the products we own, but in the experiences we share. Every month, Flying Tiger Copenhagen launches an array of new products. Things you need. Things you dream of. Things you didn’t know existed.

Products made with thought for you and the resources we share. Each one designed to make the things you care about happen.

A richer life doesn’t cost a fortune.

At least not at Flying Tiger Copenhagen.

Our history

Flying Tiger Copenhagen traces its roots back to a stall at a flea market in Denmark where founder Lennart Lajboschitz sold umbrellas with his wife Suz. Then, in 1988, Lennart and Suz opened their first brick-and-mortar store in a local neighbourhood of Copenhagen.

Its name was Zebra, and it sold umbrellas and sunglasses and socks and surplus goods. The first store called Tiger opened in Copenhagen in 1995, and everything in it cost 10 Danish kroner. The Danish word for a ten-kroner coin is pronounced tee’-yuh, which sounds just like the Danish word for tiger.

Now, more than 30 years after the opening of our first store, we are a variety retail concept with 842 stores across 27 countries. In 2022, we achieved a revenue of DKK 4,752m and we have more than 7,000 fantastic employees. On top of these numbers and achievements comes the newly launched franchise business.

Our People philosophy

At Flying Tiger Copenhagen our doors are always open! It is important for us that all employees feel welcome in our offices and can share ideas and work together. At the same time, we are also aware that working from home can have beneficial influence on our work life balance and the daily assignments. We want to ensure that it is possible to create flexible and attractive working conditions for all employees.

Based on learnings from the hybrid ways of working that the pandemic imposed on all of us, we have designed the HQ office not only to be a vibrant space where our employees want to come to work, meet colleagues, hang out and have fun, but also made sure thatwe support a hybrid working environment with the flexibility for all to do their best. This flexible approach has been highly recognised in our 2022 engagement surveys as a positive contributor to the general work engagement level.
