Hurraaay! We are very excited to announce that Normann Copenhagen has won a German Design Award for two of our designs – the Tap stool and the Form collection! Not only have these two designs won an award, they have also received a “Special Mention”, which is an exceptional recognition of a product’s design.
The German Design Award is an internationally recognized award that seeks to discover, present and acknowledge unique design talents. This is the third year in a row that Normann Copenhagen receives this award, with the Geo collection in 2014 (designed by Nicolai Wiig Hansen), and the Era lounge series in 2015 (designed by Simon Legald). Both also with a Special Mention.
“We are very proud and honored to receive another design award for our furniture designs. We are especially pleased that this year we received two awards from the German Design Awards 2016 for the Form family and Tap stool. Furniture, in particular, is something that we have invested heavily in over the last 5 years, and it is a product group that is becoming an increasing part of our business. We are looking forward to what the future will bring,” stated Poul Madsen, founder and co-owner of Normann Copenhagen.
The Tap Stool
Simple but classic – the versatile Tap stool has received a very warm welcome.
The design is a reinvention of the classic three-legged stool, but with added attention payed to the details. One main feature of the stool is the legs, which almost looks like they disappear into the seat. Another great detail is the seat made of flexible foam, which makes it very comfortable to sit on and gives it a warm and welcoming look. Tap is stackable and thus a perfect stool for extra seating or as a footstool when you need to relax your feet.
It comes in 5 different colors and is available with legs in oak or walnut.
The Form Collection
Simplicity, aesthetics and functionality characterize the Form Collection.
The collection consist of molded shell chairs, armchairs, barstools, and dining tables. The great variation makes it easy to mix and match the products according to your style and needs. Form is crafted in materials which are easy to maintain. Create a classic, unique and contemporary decor with Form.
All products in the Form collection comes in 6 different colors and the chairs are available in oak, walnut, or steel.
Simon Legald is the designer behind both Form and Tap. This is the second time that his designs receive a German Design Award.
The designer behind Form and Tap is the young Danish design talent, Simon Legald. Simon is also the designer behind Era, a lounge series for Normann Copenhagen, which also won a German Design Award in 2015. Simon’s design vision is to create pieces that are simple in their expression. At the same time he focuses on innovation and comfort.
Together with Normann Copenhagen, he has created designs that unite the contemporary and the innovative. The German Design Award is a huge recognition of this work.
We congratulate Simon with this amazing recognition!
