Summer Salad (6 of 7)

Summer is still upon most of us. This fantastic time of the year often refers to longer days, spending a lot of time outside, BBQ´s and vacation. But it also means a season full of a lot of delicious fruits!

Fruits can be used in many different ways other than being eaten just as they are. You can preserve them to make marmalade, make smoothies or use them in a pie. But why not try to include fruits in your salad?

This week’s summer salad recipe is a fruity peach salad with redcurrants that will guarantee you to get some late summer vibes! The Krenit Salad set in red matches perfectly with the red shades from the peaches and redcurrants.

The five new colors of the salad set provide ample opportunity for adding a splash of color to the dinner table. The Krenit range is inspired by the simple design language of the East and the look of traditional chopsticks is reflected in the long pointed handles of the salad set. The Krenit salad set sits perfectly in the bowl and the rounded head of the spoon makes it easy to scoop up dressings.

A(r)t home – Poul Madsen

Østerbro is one of Copenhagen´s historical neighborhoods, known for its small retail business life, significant buildings and open spaces as well as recreational areas. Poul Madsen loves Østerbro! This is his neighborhood.

His private residence is located only 5 minutes’ walk away from the Normann Copenhagen Flagship Store located at Trianglen in the heart of Østerbro. He has lived there since 2008 and he spends quite a lot of his spare time there too. In this area, he built his life’s work along with co-founder Jan Andersen. 15 years ago, they established the company Normann Copenhagen as a small retail shop on Strandboulevarden.

This sunny August afternoon, we stroll through the charming streets of Østerbro to visit Poul Madsen in his home – a 200 m2 apartment where he lives with his wife Karin Nørgaard and their 5-year-old daughter.

normann_10-08-15_1118-500Poul Madsen in his home office. The lamp “One minute Sculpture” by Dutch designer Marcel Wanders is an example of a design that borders between art and design. Sculptor Edvard Eriksen, who did the original version of The Little Mermaid – the famous Danish tourist attraction located at Langelinie in Copenhagen, made the Little Mermaid sculpture too, which Poul has placed on the desktop “7/24” by Derin.  

Taking a tour around the apartment, we spot art works in every room. Poul Madsen has several of Normann Copenhagen’s furniture pieces and design accessories as well as other classic designs. Poul Madsen´s many years of occupation in the design industry has provided him with a strong taste of what he likes. “I choose furniture for our home in the same why as I choose new products for our collection. I use my intuition. It should touch me in its form, function or color”, says Poul Madsen when we ask about the choice of décor.

Why did you pick the furniture pieces you have?

“We live rather minimalistically with a few handpicked pieces we like. I work with design and furniture on a daily basis. I see so many new designs everyday so I need to have a calm space at home. I like to mix design classics with some of our own Normann Copenhagen designs.”

normann_10-08-15_1052-500A great view from the living room into the office and dining area. Poul has placed two of Normann Copenhagen´s new Era lounge chairs in grey under works by HuskMitNavn.

How did your own interest for art arise?  

“My first experiences with art was in elementary school. Our teacher took us on many field trips and we always visited a church and a museum. When I was in 5th or 6th grade, we went to Amsterdam. We visited the Rijks Museum where I saw Peter Poul Rubens and Rembrandt van Rijn for the first time. It did something to me. I bought all the postcards in the museum shop and I thought myself to know the difference between the two. I remember thinking it was exciting to gain knowledge about the topic. Around age 18, I traveled numerous times to Poland on business. I was fascinated by art once again and bought some street art pieces. “

What does art mean to you?

“For me art is somewhat undefined, however it has to make sense to me. One of three factors should be present: talent, artisanship or time. When I experience great art, it evokes feelings and I feel it psychically. In spring 2015, I visited Art Miami New York. It was euphoric to me. It was art on an entirely different league and it overwhelmed me. I wanted to talk to everybody to hear all about the art, the artists and their galleries. I wandered around the large fairground like a child in a candy store. I was curious and fascinated in unison. It can´t really be explained in words. “

Do you have favorite artist(s)?

“In general, contemporary art is what interest me, mostly paintings, sculptures or installation art. Artists like HuskMitNavn, Tal R and Elmgreen & Dragset captivate me. HuskMitNavn makes works that are easy to relate to. Often amusing, colorful drawings, showing everyday moments. At the same time, his works contain the subtext of attitudes without provoking. Elmgreen & Dragset create art that fascinates in a different way. It is installation art, often in a museum context or in a public space, making it more inaccessible to take home. But they have such a strong conceptual idea and it is well executed, which makes is very interesting.”
 normann_10-08-15_1089-500Poul has various drawings by HuskMitNavn, one of artist he favor, on the wall in the long, narrow hall taking us to the kitchen.

“In Copenhagen, V1 Gallery does a great job too I think. Frequently, they have something I like and they allocated space for new undiscovered talents to exhibit, I like that. It makes art accessible for more people,” Poul continues enthusiastically.

Poul Madsen also works as a judge in design awards for young design talents. He enjoys the creativity that young designers often have. Moreover, as there are less boundaries in art, it is inspiring to follow the young art talents too.

What do art, design and other creative fields have in common?

“I believe that art and interior have always been linked together. We find that the lines between creative disciplines are becoming more and more blurred. It has become more acceptable to flirt with multiple branches of creativity. Many designers are working on the borders of art. They want to challenge their professionalism and transcend existing constraints for what is possible in the design. We see it also in the wide range of creative educations available today. Nearly all design schools focus on the arts and even have their own art courses.”

normann_10-08-15_1072-500The porcelain plate “Honey I’m Home” is by ceramicist Louise Hindsgavl. The work was original made for the exhibition “Honey I’m Home” at Danish Design Center in 2006.

Poul is spellbound by the magical and intricate universe of Louise Hindsgavl. He finds it inspiring how she creates objects in the cross field between design, craft and art. Although she graduated from the Design School in Kolding, Denmark, she is more established in the art world than in the world of design.

What is important when you choose art for your home?

“I want to get the personality and the senses of the artist with me home. The first thing that draws me is visual like the motif, the size and the media used by the artist. I also need to know where to place it in my home. I have turned down many pieces I fell in love with because I didn´t know where to place it. “

 normann_10-08-15_1063-500A large plant and green glass bottles on top of the fireplace, empathize the green tones from the large green painting “ Wherever You Go Is Where You Are” made by Jens Hedin in 2003.

What was your first piece?

“My first art piece was a large drawing from Christian Le Fix. I saw a smaller drawing by him which I really liked. I asked if he would make a large drawing for me. And he did! Today, it hangs in my kitchen and we love to look at it everyday”.

normann_10-08-15_1043-500The large grey Bell lamp emphasizes the color tones in the painting on the wall. The Danish artist Marie Bancks has made the large painting “Echo of Me” (2010) on the wall. Poul likes her brushstrokes and the depth in the painting and the work adds color to the room too.

How does art inspire you in your professional life?

“Art inspires me every day. I like art that lies in the crossover field between art and design and it really feed inspiration for new ideas. After many years working in the design industry, I have decoded the business. I know the design companies, I know the designers and I know the retail shops. The art world is such a big undiscovered field for me. Most of the profiles I follow on Instagram are involved with art in some way of the other such as art museums, a galleries and artists. Fx I follow HuskMitNavn and he posts small brilliant drawings every day that makes me stop and think“.

normann_10-08-15_1069-500In his daily work, Poul searches for inspiration in many places such as on travels, in art, but also in design and art books.

Do you ever use art in the Flagship Store?

“We do use art in the store occasionally. For our grand opening of the Flagship Store in 2005, we asked the Danish painter Kristian von Hornsleth to do an art painting in one of the ceilings. You can still see it. During the years, we have invited different art and craft exhibitions. We were, for example, hosts for an exhibition, showing photo art by Danish photographer Bent Rej together with Gallery Asbæk in 2010. Latest this Sunday, we held an Art Talk “Do architecture need to entertain?” in collaboration with Chart Art Fair. Star Architect Bjarke Ingels from BIG and Bjørnstjerne Reuter Christiansen from Superflex answered questions from moderator Mark Rappolt, Editor-in-Chief at ArtReview. We like to do collaborations like that. “

Normann Copenhagen supports the Chart Art Fair, taking place from August 21-23, 2015. Read more about the collaboration with Chart 2015 here.

A(r)t home – Simon Friese

Art and design complement each other in the home décor. Art can also support the function of a room and define a space with its colors, shapes and expressions, and thus create life and personality in the interior.

We visited Simon Friese, Director of the Chart Art Fair, in his home in Copenhagen for a chat about how he uses design and art in his own décor. On a beautiful sunny day, Simon welcomes us in his 170 m2 large luxurious apartment in the heart of Copenhagen city, close to the Town Hall Square. Although the apartment has a downtown location, it is surprisingly quiet with no noise from the streets.

normann_10-08-15_0125 500 pxSimon Friese in his living room. 

Less than a year ago, Simon and his girlfriend Marie Nipper took over the apartment where they now live with their baby daughter. Previously, the space functioned as office facilities, making a complete renovation necessary in order to make the space livable for a family. They removed the lowered ceilings to expose the original ceiling moldings. Walls were taken down, making room for a large kitchen and living room in one, and special solutions were implemented to suit the couple´s style and art.

While Simon shows us around it is obvious to us, that aesthetics in all its forms is an essential part of the interior in the home. We could not help but asking about their choice of both art, design and furniture. Read what he said here.

What is important to you in your décor? 

“We enjoy beautiful things. And to us that can both mean designer pieces and flee market junk. It’s fun when our guests feel surprised and discover the sometimes weird objects in our home. We like to invest in classic pieces and most of our furniture has been with us for years, but we also like to be impulsive and often come home with flea market finds. Books are also essential to us“.

normann_10-08-15_0019 500 pxThe living room and office area 

Why did you pick the furniture pieces you have?

“Some of our things are heirlooms, others stuff we have brought home from our travels abroad. Several of our furniture pieces are classics such as the Eilersen sofa and Poul Kjærholm chairs. Others are things we find at flea markets. We chose each piece because we like it. Our office desk is by the artist Fos. It was used at the cocktail bar & nightclub Karrierebar in the meat packing district in Copenhagen. When the place closed down, we bought a couple of the tables. They all have some scratches from when people used to dance on the tables. Like that, many of our things come with a story.”

normann_10-08-15_0055 500pxStore mor by Svend Dalsgaard

The painting “Store mor” (= “Great mom”) by the Danish painter Svend Dalsgaard was a gift from Marie’s parents when the couple´s daughter was born. The work used to hang in Marie’s childhood home, but now has a central space next to the living room, hallway and kitchen.

What does art mean to you?

“Art means a lot to me and holds meanings on many different levels. Part of what makes the art world interesting is that there exists no restrictions, expectations or rules to what art should be. Art appears to me as the most creative disciplines with a unique artistic space of freedom. In our daily lives it can help to inspire a lot too. It takes up more and more time in my private and professional life. Maybe also because Marie is just as engaged in the art world as I am. Every time we travel there is a connection with art in one way or another.”

normann_10-08-15_0046 500 pxBall by Olafur Eliasson

Marie is Chief Curator at ARoS – Aarhus Art Museum, so she has a close relationship to Olafur Eliasson’s work. The glass ball holds a special place in both their hearts. It was a gift from the previous Director of ARoS, Jens Erik Sørensen, to the spouses of the management team for the opening of Olafur Eliasson´s installation Your Condensation in 2013.

How do you use art in your home?

“All rooms in our home are decorated with art in one form or another. We have many works standing on the floor waiting for it to get their own space. Art in our home does not necessarily come in the form of a painting, sculpture or print, but can also be a table or a lamp made by artists. However, art should not have a function other than a visual one in my home.”

normann_10-08-15_0036 500 pxThe kitchen also works as an exhibition space for art pieces

How did your interest for art arise? And how did it become your way of living?  

“Since I was 15 years old, I have had a great interest for all creative fields ranging from art to design and gastronomy to music and architecture. Nevertheless, always with a main passion for art. Art became my profession 3 years ago when I became part of the Chart Art Fair. Before that, I was an active part of the Danish hospitality industry and I hold a degree in project management from the school of journalism too. Driving events and communication has thus always been a part of my professional life.”

Do you have a favorite art piece or a favorite artist?

“In my home, my favorite piece of art changes from something I just bought to falling back in love with an old piece. At this moment, I am excited about a new, large Christian Lemmerz’s piece. We are waiting for the framing. I stumbled across this piece in a work context where I saw Lemmerz´s work hanging on the wall. This is an atypical work by Christian Lemmerz as he normally uses other media. There’s an amusing story attached to the work that has inspired it – I always liked that.”

normann_10-08-15_0066 500 pxPostcards by Sol Lewitt

“Another piece that means a lot to me is two postcards by the American artist Sol Lewitt”, Simon explains with enthusiasm. “We have always been huge fans of his minimalist style. We were fortunate to stumble across the postcards at the Danish auction house Bruun Rasmussen which was our chance to get hold of a piece from such a world-class artist”.

normann_10-08-15_0057 500 px  Cans by Tony Matelli

The Cans piece is a work by the American artist Tony Matelli, known for his realist work. The work consists of two beer cans stacked on top of each other with cards and one French fry on top. The cards are cast in bronze, then hand painted. Simon tells us that he likes the reference of using a traditional refined material like bronze to create a work that looks like an everyday object. It surprises and creates wonder. ” We find it to be a true conversation piece and our guests often go directly towards it and lift it up”, Simon says.

What was your first piece of art?

“It was a print of Wes Lang, depicting a blackbird. Wes Lang drew the blackbird on some stationary from a hotel where he once stayed in LA. I think he makes amazing things – and the print struck something in me. It still does! I actually got this piece from Marie when we first met, so in that sense it also has great meaning to me.” 

As our home tour seen from an art perspective draws to an end and we bike our way through Copenhagen to the design world of the Normann Copenhagen Flagship Store, we realize that despite their many differences the world of art and design share one thing; passion – passion for great craftsmanship and passion for getting behind the story of an art piece or a design.

Chart Art Fair x Normann Copenhagen

Normann Copenhagen has entered into a partnership with the ambitious Chart Art Fair to support the Scandinavian contemporary art scene. The collaboration is not only about making art and design more accessible for everyone but also about making Copenhagen an even more attractive destination within the art and design scene.

Chart Art Fair runs from 21-23rd of August and is no ordinary art fair. The beautiful, historic rooms at Charlottenborg Kunsthal set the scene for the art exhibitions, creating a truly unique opportunity to experience art at close range.

A fusion of creative fields

Though art in its different forms is the focal point of Chart Art Fair, the fair also emphasizes the creative interplay between art, architecture, gastronomy, design, and music. Chart Art Fair lets you experience the dynamics between these different creative fields.

It is important to unite the best from different creative worlds to create a unique and distinctive experience at Chart Art Fair. This is clear in everything from the design of the stands, environment, and setup at Chart to the music played at the opening. If we are to compete against major international art fairs and make Copenhagen an international platform for high quality art, we need to think and execute differently. In Scandinavia, we hold a great tradition of working together. This is quite unique,” explains Simon Friese, Fair Director of Chart Art Fair.

A fruitful collaboration

The opportunity to support art by uniting design and art as well as shared values are also some of the reasons for Chart Art Fair and Normann Copenhagen working together. Normann Copenhagen is excited about being part of the upcoming art fair says Poul Madsen, CEO and co-founder:

“We have always tried to push boundaries and do things in new ways. We have much in common with the way Chart Art Fair does things. The quality, concept and vision behind Chart Art Fair are appealing to Normann Copenhagen. This collaboration is an exceptional opportunity to work with creative and talented professionals within the art world and make Copenhagen attractive on the art and design scene.”

ChartArtFair2014-Agency.idoart.dk-162s 500pxImage from Chart Art Fair 2014

Chart Art Fair´s Director, Simon Friese is equally thrilled about the collaboration:

“A collaboration with Normann Copenhagen is ideal for us because we share the same values. Normann Copenhagen is rooted in Denmark but with an ambition to become international. So is Chart.”

Art is for everyone

Normann Copenhagen believes that well-crafted and aesthetic design should be accessible for all. The same thoughts are applied to Chart Art Fair, where art is displayed for all to experience inside Charlottenborg, outside in the courtyard as well as around the city of Copenhagen.

The collaboration grew out of the perception that, we are all commonly responsible for disseminating our knowledge about art and design. Hence, the purpose is not to put design and art as one, but to let the two forms of expression accentuate each other. Thus letting the visitors experience a high quality of creativity from both worlds.

Scandinavian design with its rather minimalistic expression allows visitors to experience the art pieces to the fullest while still creating a modern space that combines contemporary art and design. If everyone needs to rest their legs after wandering around the halls, they can visit the lounge area co-designed by Montana and Normann Copenhagen.

An example of how art moves into the world of design is the special project VIDEO VIDEO – a series of video works from renowned artists, such as Joe Winograd, Katarina Löfström, Martin Erik Andersen, Rhys Coren, Samuel Levack and Jennifer Lewandowksi, and Sara Ludy. The unique video installation will be shown on designated screens in shop windows around the Copenhagen, amongst other at the Normann Copenhagen Flagship Store, creating a visually striking artistic presentation.

Share food and drinks with your love

Food and drinks are powerful tools! They are essential parts of our lives used on all kinds of occasions. Whether it is a family get together, a meeting with a friend, a celebration, or even a date, we use them to create the setting for the things we do together with other people, and especially with the ones we love. It makes us comfortable and brings us closer together, as we all take part in the greatness that lies within sharing a meal. Some might even claim that great food and drinks taste better if you have someone to share them with!

But it is not only the food and drinks on their own. The way you serve them plays a huge part in the enjoyment as well. The shape and color of the tableware can attribute to the whole experience of the meal. Wine and liquids are especially influenced by the way they are served, as using the right shape of glass is important if you want to bring out all the taste nuances.

We strive to make designs that contribute to the enjoyment of sweet indulgences, whether you share them with your loved one or enjoy them just by yourself.

Summer Salad (4 of 7)

Old things eventually become modern again and so do old recipes! Nordic food is having its breakthrough these days and it is actually not as dull and grey as many people outside of Denmark think. Containing all kinds of fresh vegetables, fish, berries and bread, Nordic food is a colorful palette of crisp delicious ingredients.

Here at Normann Copenhagen we celebrate the revival of Nordic food with a recipe for green potato salad with sardines, created by our Retail Director Peter Elmegaard. The blue Krenit salad set brightens up the salad but still keeps the look cool and appetizing.

The recipe is the fourth out of seven salad recipes to celebrate the launch of the new colors of the classic Krenit salad set.
