Count down to Christmas

We are almost there… December! A month of joy and warmth and of course that tingling pleasure of anticipation. Count down to Christmas with our Christmas Candle, which lets you burn away a stripe each day to keep track of how much of the wait is left.

Numbered Christmas Candles like this one from Normann Copenhagen is a beautiful, long lived Danish tradition and for the past years we have made a new design every year.

This year the candle is inspired by Paris haute couture, which is translated into an elegant graphic pattern. The stripes give off a chic vibe while the simplicity of the candle makes it fit into many different decors. Use the candle by itself, with the minimalistic Heima Block Candle Holder or make a still life by combining the candle with other decoration pieces and christmas ornaments.

Go get it now and be ready when we enter the month of December on Monday. The Candle is sold out online, but you can still find it in stores.

Psst..! If you are invited to any dinner parties this weekend, the Christmas Candle would make an excellent hostess gift.

Normann Copenhagen X Nordicthink

From time to time we have the privilege of collaborating with cool design shops from around the world to present larger product spaces and popup shops. For the past month the trendsetting Barcelona store Nordicthink has dedicated a 35 m2 space to introduce Normann Copenhagen’s growing collection of furniture and accessories to the citizens of Barcelona.

Until now, Normann Copenhagen has mostly been know in Spain for smaller accessories and glassware, but the collection is much more today and we thought the time was right to make the brand and our multifaceted product range better known to the public. 

CEO and Co-founder of Normann Copenhagen Poul Madsen says: “We are happy to be able to show our Spanish customers more of what we are all about. We are seeing an increased interest in Scandinavian design on the Spanish market and we want to take the opportunity to let people know exactly who and what Normann Copenhagen is and stands for. We are thrilled that our new friends at Nordicthink are helping us do this.”

The space opened with talks by Normann Copenhagen Sales Manager Iben W. Andreasen and Normann Copenhagen’s Senior Designer Simon Legald, who presented the Normann Copenhagen brand to the attending guests.

Nordicthink’s Normann Copenhagen space shows a selection of our pieces styled in small inspirational environments. A mix of furniture pieces, lighting and accessories was chosen to show the versatility of the Normann Copenhagen brand.  The space is kept in a simple, Scandinavian color range of black, white and grey with soft green and blue hues.

Chocolate & Licorice

Many wonderful things are happening at our Flagship Store this time of year. The Christmas decorations are up and we are officially ready for the countdown to Christmas. On November 22nd, we will kick-start the Christmas spirit with an event for everyone with a hankering for chocolate.

We have teamed up with chocolate connoisseur Maja Ambeck Vase (a.k.a. Maja Chocolat) and the licorice lovers from Lakrids by Johan Bülow to create something special for this Saturday afternoon get-together. In cooperation with Lakrids, Maja has developed three delicious kinds of filled chocolates, which she will hand out at the event.

Maja Ambeck Vase runs one of Denmark’s most popular chocolate and dessert blogs. She is self-employed and works as a food columnist, recipe developer, food photographer and cookbook author. Just recently, Maja launched a cookbook together with another Danish dessert blogger, Anne au Chocolat. A book that, of course, is all about the joys of chocolate.

Lakrids by Johan Bülow makes gourmet licorice of natural ingredients only.  The high quality, interesting flavors and cool packaging have made Lakrids by Johan Bülow an instant success. Johan Bülow’s licorice shop at the Danish island Bornholm has quickly grown into an empire and today the licorice is sold in metropolitans such as London and New York.

Maja has used her keen sense of aesthetics to style the images that appear in this post. The almost graphic imagery show her mouth-watering chocolate and licorice creations beautifully served on Normann Copenhagen bowls and dishes in a minimalistic set-up.

If this post made you feel a tickle on your tongue, you should stop by the store and please your taste buds with the perfectly balanced symphonies of chocolate and licorice. This is also a great opportunity to find inspiration for your own Christmas confections. It will be possible to purchase Maja’s new book at the event.

Come join our chocolate adventure and remember to bring your family and friends!

Ducky goes to Israel

The Ducks have been set free and they are out showing off! Our wooden figure Ducky is making an appearance at the Fresh Paint Fair, which is Israel’s largest, most influential annual art event. The 7th edition of the Fresh Paint contemporary art fair is taking place right now. The fair is open from the 4th to the 8th of November.

The nation’s top galleries as well as promising emerging galleries will present at the fair, and the special Greenhouse area will showcase the works of select, independent Israeli artists and designers. A small flock of parading Normann Copenhagen ducks can be seen at Dor Carmon Studio’s cool stand at the fair.

Dor Carmon is the designer behind Ducky. He is born in Israel and educated at the Holon Institute of Technology. Dor Carmon has the ability to define precise shape and proportions and create unique designs that really excite the user. He specializes in furniture and lifestyle products.

Ducky started out as a one of a kind piece made as a special gift for his daugther, but he quickly saw the potentiel in the design and refined the lines and proportions until he had the final product in his hands. The result is a decorative and humorous figure which looks great in many different settings.

If you happen to be in Tel Aviv this week you should check out the fair. For more information visit www.freshpaint.co.il/en

 

Candle light

Winter draws near and in the North we find great joy in filling our homes with candles during the long and dark winter months. A tradition that seems to surprise the southern nations where candles mostly serve practical purposes. On a visit to Finland the Spanish design duo Ramírez i Carrillo became fascinated by the Northern people’s use of candles, and was thus inspired to design a candle holder that captured both South and North.

The result is Floe, a simple and classic tea light holder with references to both Spanish and Scandinavian design traditions.

Design

Made of colored glass, Floe will light up a room in more than one way. The colors are fresh and attractive and the glass smooth and shiny. Glass and light is a wondrous combination, as the glass reflects the flame and creates a beautiful play with light.

Floe has a robust expression. The chunky shape is almost naïve but the proportions are carefully balanced and the transparency of the glass adds lightness. Inspired by antique oil lamps, the  holder is also equipped with a practical handle.

Feel

Floe will see you through the winter and keep your spirit up. A candlelit room has a very special ambience. You instantly get the urge to cuddle up in a blanket with some hot tea or a glass of wine and enjoy the beautiful sight of lights burning bright. In the winter, candles are an essential part of the unique Danish term ‘hygge’, which can be translated into cozy and describes a warm and pleasant atmosphere usually created in the company of friends or family.

The Floe Tea Light Holder comes in a selection of intriguing colors, which can be combined in a multitude of ways. Floe is a brand new product and will hit stores later this year.

 

Setting up in Quatuor

Our Belgian retailer Quatuor has a big, charming store in Uccle where we have just been on a visit to create a Normann Copenhagen environment. Check our a couple of snapshots from the new space.

The process of arranging a product space is always fun and the Quatuor store’s pleasant rustic atmosphere with exposed beams and brick walls creates a nice setting for our products.

You can see more pictures from the Quatuor store, if you read our blog post from the store’s opening party back in June.

This store has a lot to offer, so stop by if you are in the area! www.quatuor.be

Oh how brilliant!

Brilliant is a series of small decorative boxes from our new fall collection. Their design is inspired by jewels, visible in both the facetted lids and in the color choices which resemble stones like rubies, amethysts and emeralds. The name Brilliant obviously refers to the shine of the precious stones, but it also tells what we think they are: Brilliant!

Brilliant has clear references to the old crystal boxes you can find at your grandmother’s or at antique markets. In the design of Brilliant the nostalgia is combined with a modern idiom and as an effect it becomes a warming aftertaste instead of the main expression.

Brilliant comes in two sizes, which look great together; either side by side or stacked. The boxes are great for keeping jewelry and other small treasures. They are a decorative element on a shelf, dresser or in the bathroom, used on their own or as part of a still life. You can mix and match the different colours to create various expressions, or you can stick with the simple grey version, if your decór has a Nordic style with a more neutral color range.

Brilliant is also a great gift idea. Give a Brilliant box away as it is or make it the perfect hostess gift by filling it with delicious (homemade) sweets.

The colored see-through lids will give you a peek of what’s inside if you look down at the boxes from the top. If you view them from the side you will discover that the apparent transparency of the glass is disturbed by the tiny studs in the surface which creates a blurred effect. This adds an interesting dynamic to the boxes and piques the curiosity.

Brilliant will be in stock at the beginning of December, just in time for Christmas!

Small tables for everyone

We want to pay a tribute to small tables; the multifunctional little helpers which hold our bits and bobs!

1) 
Small tables are versatile. If your needs or your surroundings should change, a small table can easily fill a new function in another part of your home. Use it as a side table, coffee table, bedside table, in the hallway or children’s room.

2) 
Small tables are also practical. A small table is most often lightweighted and can easily be moved around. It is great for table lamps and will provide you with a place to place your book or coffee cup.

3)
And last, but not least, small tables are decorative. A small table in a cool design might be just what you need to contrast your more voluminous furniture and create an interesting and dynamic space. It can also be the perfect base for displaying your favorite pieces. Arrange small still lives and put your personality into your interior.

Fall news

This Fall, we  introduce two new small tables; Box and Stay, both made in lacquered steel. The steel has a shiny, almost metallic finish, which really makes these tables stand out from the crowd.

Box is a simple table with a cool industrial look. Despite the strong material and construction, Box has a light feel to it. The bended ends serve for handles and give the table a unique look.  Box comes in two different sizes, which work great used together as coffee tables in front of a couch. The cold steel will look beautiful in combination with organic decorative pieces, like potted plants.

Box is available in Creme, Cement Grey, Turquoise, Blue Green and Midnight Blue.

Made in the same material, Stay continues the industrial look of Box, but the curvy design adds a touch of softness to the appearance of the table. Stay has a practical, built-in shelf perfect for storing magazines, books, design objects or toys. Stay is an eye-cathing piece of furniture that will add a funky twist to your decor.

Stay comes in Burgundy, Green and Stone Grey.

Favorites

While we are at it, let’s take a look at some of Normann Copenhagen’s most popular designs. You have probably seen these beauties before, but as they excel in the category of small tables, we should not leave them out.

Our small table Block is both cute and extremely practical. The wheels add mobility and the elongated table legs create four handles at the top of the table, which make it easy to grab and move around. Although Block is a small table, it can hold quite a lot of stuff because of the two levels. Block can fit in anywhere in the home and be used for several decorative and practical purposes. For example, Block could be of great use in the Bathroom for spare towels and beauty products or in the kitchen as a small serving trolley or for tableware.

Block is available in Black, White, Light Grey, Dark Grey, Coral and Mint.

Tablo is a simple three legged table with rounded shapes which give the table a friendly appearance. With its simple design Tablo will fit most interiors and has the potential to be a piece you will keep for years to come. The Tablo Table comes in two sizes of which the smallest size is shown here. The small Tablo Table is also made with a square table top.

Tablo is avalaible in Black, White, Warm grey, Blue, Grey or White with White legs and Black with Black legs.

New York Times names 12 Treasures of Europe

There’s nothing like starting a new week with some great news. This morning we were very happy to discover that the New York Times has named Normann Copenhagen one of the 12 treasures of Europe in their latest travel issue that hit stores on October 19th. The journalists and editors have selected their favorites places and items to discover if you are planning a trip to Europe.

Read the article here and find out what the other 11 treasures of Europe are.

Popstars

After an age long break the TV-show ‘Popstars’ is now back on Danish television. The search of Denmark’s next popstar is well under the way and the suspense increases as we approach the final. With a judges team counting actress and entrepreneur Christiane Schamburg-Müller, Danish pop singer Medina, and producer and songwriter Søren Rasted (you might remember him from the pop group Aqua and their big international 90’s hit ‘Barbie girl’), the contestants are up for a tough challenge.

During the selection process, the contestants hang out in the Popstars apartment where Normann Copenhagen has a hand in the décor. The show’s interior stylist has decorated the apartment with several Normann Copenhagen furniture and accessories styles. The contemporary expression of the Normann Copenhagen pieces looks great in contrast with the classic apartment. The stylist’s use of colorful artwork provides the finishing touch.
