Normann Copenhagen’s Flagship Store

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

The Normann Copenhagen flagship store is something of a visual masterpiece. Following a large-scale, comprehensive renovation, Normann Copenhagen is opening the doors of its spectacular
new showroom. The Danish design company’s new headquarters appears as an experimental, artistic universe in brushed steel, lively terrazzo, and eye-popping colour combinations.

For just over a month the doors to Normann Copenhagen’s flagship store in Copenhagen have been covered with a mysterious pink foil. Behind the scenes, work has been going on at a feverish pace to create a new base for Normann Copenhagen – an extraordinary, world-class showroom. The new combined flagship store and showroom presents an exclusive and bold design concept that captures the essence of the Normann Copenhagen brand. A conceptual, theatrical universe gives the showroom the character of an art exhibition, where
everything is carefully curated and nothing is left to chance.

“We want to give visitors the feeling they’re moving around in an art installation. We’ve played with the contrast between warm and cold in a contemporary interior environment that pays homage to premises that are very worthy of preservation,” says designer Hans Hornemann, who in cooperation with Normann Copenhagen’s Brand Manager, Britt Bonnesen, developed the concept and design of the new showroom.

The style is raw and industrial, with a contrasting blend of materials. Epoxy, steel, reflective glass and coloured acrylic meet more organic elements like plush rugs and shimmering terrazzo. The old cinema’s original classical details have been carefully restored, and stucco work and bas reliefs create a beautiful contrast to an emerald green ceiling and oyster grey walls.

Results Chair and Pyramid Table from HAY

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

“We are mainly known as a company who collaborates with designers from our own time, but for me the link between these products and what we have been doing, is the approach to industrial design they employed to make them. The idea of working with materials and construction in an intelligent and reliable way, creating as much value for clients at a reasonable price; the Result Chair and Pyramid Table were originally about just this.” Rolf Hay

Created to be adaptable, light and strong, the Result chair (1958) and Pyramid Collection (1959) are two examples of products that utilise the cutout sheet steel construction method of manufacture. The Results chair was originally designed by Friso Kramer and Wim Rietveld and the Pyramid collection by Rietveld in the middle of the 20th Centuary, while they work at Ahrend. Produced prominently for schools in the 1960’s and 1970’s throughout the Netherlands, The Results Chair has a particularly strong relationship with Dutch residents as it was part of their daily lived growing up. Combing fuction and excellence with aesthetic lightness and adaptability, both designs are exceptionally sparing in their use of materials, are simple to construct and organic their shape. They remain as relevant and useful today as the first day they were created.

We really enjoyed NEW OLD, a pop up exhibition which explored the potential for design to enhance the experience of our later lives. This table featured here was an experiential element of the exhibition in which the old and young were encouraged to sit down and ask each other questions. The whole exhibition was very thought provoking. From a design point of view, we love how great the HAY upholstered AAC22 chair looks among all this greenery!
