6 New Designs

Today, we share something completely new – 6 completely new things, in fact!

We have just introduced a new collection of home accessories all characterized by their Scandinavian simplicity and iconic shapes. Meet the decoration pieces Swan and Shorebird, the practical and pretty Curve Hook and short Shoehorn and finally, two clever reinterpretations of everyday classic; the Squeezer and the Buzz Flyswatter.

The 6 new product are a true embodiment of the Normann Copenhagen aesthetic. Find out why here!

Shorebird, Swan & Ducky.

It’s no secret that we love product that are bold, eye-catching and often innovative in their function. It’s probably also obvious that we have an affinity for contemporary design. We often look at the trends in the fashion world when we decide on which colors each product should come in, and though many of our products have a minimalistic expression, it is paramount to us that our designs are full of character. These designs fit that bill to a T.

The Shoehorn – now available in a shorter version

We’ve used quality materials and finished them in ways that make them all smooth and soft to the touch. If you look at the new short Shoehorn for example, the matte surface gives the nylon material an exclusive look. The unique function of the Shoehorn is the slim, flexible yet robust tip, which adjusts to the foot and shoe. The short Shoehorn can be stored on any shelf or in any drawer nearby, so it’s always handy and ready to be used.

Curve Hooks - already in stock

Many Normann Copenhagen products are known for their iconic shapes, which lets you recognize many of our products immediately just by looking at the silhouette. This is also the case with the 6 news designs. Like the Curve Hook which are shaped like a J and have a slightly oversize look to them, or the Buzz Flyswatter with its sculptural shape.

The carefully selected colors give an extra dimension to the new accessories. All of them are inspired by Nordic nature like glacier and ice with its many shades of blue or the warm reds referencing to heather flowers and ripe berries. Finally, natural wood and classic shades like black, white and grey add Scandinavian simplicity to the products.

Ducky, Shorebird & Swan.

With the launch of two ranges of decorative wooden birds, new timeless collectibles are born. Pass them down generations, and use them to add a charismatic and appealing touch to the home. Just like a pictogram, the Swan comes across with a distinct, almost nonchalant posture, while the Shorebirds inspired by the curlew, redshank and sandpiper. They are modeled on the natural body position wading birds have when looking for food in the sand and on the shoreline.

Finally, we have the Squeezer, where the designers have challenged the boring task of squeezing the juice from citrus fruits. Instead, they have designed a fun Squeezer which can be adjusted in two ways, letting you press the juice from limes, lemons, oranges, grapefruits and even pomelo fruits – any citrus fruit really. As an additional practical detail, you can collect the juice and pour it straight from the Squeezer. What’s not to like?

BBQ season is on!

The grill has finally been taken out from its hiding place. The last few days, the sun has been shinning from a blue sky in Denmark and the Copenhagen parks have been full of happy people. This calls for a little barbeque inspiration, so you can face the summer season in style.

Nothing better than a juicy steak with lots of spices. Thd Craft Salt & Pepper Mills come in two sizes. A perfect companion on the table or at the grill as the head chef´s best helper.

Balancing all the delicious summer courses into the garden is much easier with a tray. The Nabo Trays comes in a set of three so why not ask your friends to help you?

Whether you are getting ready to barbeque in the park or in the garden, you can bring a Cristal Carafe with cold refreshments. Comes with 5 cups in delicate summer shades.

Summer evenings in Denmark can get a little chilly after sundown, but a throw blanket can extend the cozy evenings outside longer. The Tint Throw Blanket is made from 100 % New Zealand wool, so wrap up and keep warm!

For us, summertime also means delicious crispy salads. The Krenit Salad Bowl is the perfect for showing all the wonderful colors of your summer salad.

Don´t forget to set the right atmosphere with lots of candles and paper garlands. Light House is a lantern that creates cozyness when darkness falls.

Happy barbequing!

Quatuor shop opening

Lately, we’ve had the pleasure of sharing some different examples of the exciting stuff our retailers have been doing and we happy to say that we have another retail story for you today.

Over the years, our Belgian retailer Quatuor has been focusing mainly on online shopping but has been expanding with several concept stores. Most recently, they have opened a store in Uccle. They held a big opening with drinks, a cool DJ and a chef to make delicious snacks for more than 400 customers, architects and guests from the press. Thanks to Quatuor for sending us the nice pictures from the event so we can share them with our readers here on the blog.

Menu: Normann Pizza

Our new Pizza Wheel has arrived! Pizza Wheel is a multi-functional kitchen utensil with a built-in bottle opener in the handle. The Pizza Wheel is a smart and space-saving object. It is ideal for frequent, everyday use and is a decorative addition to the dining table.

A relaxed dinner with friends
The designer Alessandro Busana drew his inspiration for the Pizza Wheel from the dining table. For him, this is an almost magical place where you can sit down with family or friends to discuss the events of the day over a relaxing dinner.

Alessandro Busana explains: ”Maybe it’s because I’m Italian, but when I think of an informal dinner with friends or family, a pizza with a cold beer or soft drink is almost a ritual. This observation quickly led me to the idea of having a bottle opener and cutting function in one and the same product. This means that you only have to remember to take one item with you to the dining table. This practical aspect is one of the reasons I really like to design objects that are multi-functional.”

Normann Pizza Event
In connection with the launch of our new Pizza Wheel, we asked a number of Danish journalists, stylists and bloggers to create their own dream pizza. Here are a few examples of what they came up with – enjoy!

Blogger Allan Torp from Denmark´s largest design blog bungalow5 made a classic pizza with tomato, bacon, mozzarella, olives and basil.

Living stylist and blogger from BoligciousMalene Marie Møller, challenged the senses and created a dessert pizza with rhubarb compote, goat cheese, acacia honey and fresh basil.

Kasper Foged Rasmussen, News Editor at one of the leading Danish interior magazines Bo Bedre, mixed sweet, sharp and fun flavors in his pizza with fennel, tomato, pine nuts, rosemary, salami Milano and radish.

Living Director at one of the leading Danish interior magazines Alt Interiør, Nicola Kragh Riis, made her favorite pizza with tomato sauce with basil, anchovies, sausage, Vesterhavsost, parmesan, fennel and sun-dried tomato.

Mette Helena Rasmussen, stylist and owner of Retro Villa, has created her pizza based on this motto is: “more is okay (sometimes!)”. Her pizza is with tomato, parma ham, sun-dried tomato, garlic, onion, gorgonzola, mozzarella and thyme.

Invite friends & family and start baking…..
The Pizza Wheel is available in classic black, grey and sand as well as three appetizing colors drawn from the pizza world; a red inspired by tomatoes and bell peppers, an aubergine color and a dark green reminiscent of oregano and spinach. Whether you serve your own, delicious homemade pizza creations or you order directly from your local pizzeria on the corner, the Pizza Wheel is an obvious companion at the dining table.

A NEW ERA

It’s almost time for the weekend and for relaxing. We certainly wouldn’t mind having a rest in one of our new lounge chairs, so we thought it was about time that we introduce the new Era Lounge Collection to all you readers here on the blog.

The essense of Era is its well-proportioned design; a unique mix of soft curves and sharp lines that give Era a contemporary feel which is completely its own. Designed by Danish designer Simon Legald, Era combines modern production techniques with traditional furniture craftsmanship in a timeless and characterful design.

Versatility and comfort

The Era Lounge Collection easily accommodates modern interior’s need for flexibility. With lots of different combinations to select from, it is easy to create the design that suits your taste and needs the best. You can for example choose between a high and low version, different types of legs and various luxurious upholsteries in either leather or textile. The wide, molded cushion and the curves along the back of the chairs ensure a fantastic sitting comfort.

A design to last

The Era Lounge Collection is designed to transcend generations and is just as at home with lovers of design or families with children, as it is with young couples or their grandparents. Aside from its timeless shape, Era also has an incredibly strong and durable construction with steel-reinforcement and textile intended for intensive everyday use.

Which is your Era?

So, which Era are you going to choose? Here are a couple of tips that might help you choose: The high-back version has added support for the neck, making it perfect for resting. The low version is ideal for smaller living spaces, as it takes up less visual space. The Era Rocking Chair has a uniquely calming effect and is a fun and unexpected choice for a lounge chair. For extra comfort and rest for the feet, you can get an Era Footstool that matches your chair perfectly and can function as an extra seating unit.

But rest asured, no matter which of the chairs you select, Era is comfortable for hours on end!

Normann Copenhagen in La Rinascente

Normann Copenhagen is happy to exhibit with our good friends in La Rinascente in Milan in the prime location at the end of the escalator to the design supermarket on floor -1.

The exhibition guides the consumer through the designers’ thoughts behind their designs. This allows the consumer to get a sense of the vision of the products. We visited La Rinascente in Milan to shoot these pictures. What do you think?

So if you are in Milan before the 28th of May, make sure to visit La Rinascente and check out the Normann Copenhagen exhibition.

Iconic design in new colors

Beautiful new colors for the iconic design of the Krenit Bowl will soon be available for all Krenit lovers. The original Krenit Bowl now comes in a mint, a clear yellow and a bold coral. Krenit is a perfect example of excellent Danish design and throughout the years it has become a classic in the Danish homes. With the addition of the new colors, the series now contains a total of 60 bowls in ten colors and six sizes.

As a tribute to this simple design, the three new colors are carefully selected, creating a sharp contrast to the black exterior of the bowl. The inspiration for the yellow and mint colored bowls was drawn from the original Krenit color universe. The clear yellow adds a touch of nostalgia while the cool mint creates a distinguished, Scandinavian expression. The strong coral is a bold feminine choice for the home.

The Art of Living

THE ART OF LIVING is an exhibition curated by the Italian Corriere della Sera Interior Magazine LIVING. The exhibition took place during the Triennale di Milano in April, and we’re happy to say that our Nyhavn Vases were selected to be part of it. Our friends at Corriere della Sera were kind enough to send us their beautiful pictures from the exhibition. Let’s just say that we’re in love – so much so, in fact, that we just had to share the images with you here on the blog.

Project and set-up Migliore+Servetto Architects, Styling Alessandro Pasinelli.

The curators about the exhibition:

“The exhibition aims to explain the dialogue between design and contemporary art. Design can be considered as an art form perfectly fitting together with contemporary artwork pieces and installations.

A double face story that marks the artistic origin of Made in Italy. Domestic spaces open the doors to contemporary art and its various expressive shapes that build an unprecedented tale utilizing historical and contemporary items of design and furniture. The Art of Living put up on a show ten authors’ interiors. The event ingredients: design icons, the most significant contemporary design items and artists’ sets. The suggestive combination between artistic installations and design products gives life to unique spaces”.

Welcome colors into your living room

When decorating the living room, don’t be afraid to use colors. As long as you keep it in tones that compliment each other, you are good to go. We’ve gathered some inspiration on how to use colors and bring a little life into your living room.

Paint the walls in different colors to divide the room visually. Simple and matte finishes make the room look more exclusive, and mixing unexpected shades create a bold appearance.

For a calm contrast to colorful walls, opt for furniture pieces in grey or neutrals, or go all out and create a playful universe by using different shades of blue on everything from walls to furniture and accessories. Mix bold blue tones with fresh coral and soft pastels like nude.

If you aren’t quite ready to take the plunge with brightly colored walls and eye-catching furniture pieces, there are lots of other easy ways to spruce up the living room on a smaller scale. Use accessories like the Cloud Cushion and Nyhavn Vase to create a coherent look, but don’t be afraid to be daring.

Thinking about going for a colored floor? We say: Go for it! But we recommend sticking to just a few colors of choice in the room to avoid it looking busy and unorganized.

A couple of neutral elements like the Norm 69 Lamp, the Solid Table and a Light House in white can be just the right contrast to the colors and can helps create a more tranquil atmosphere.

Get graphical

We love using graphical elements in the décor. Graphic designs often have a way of catching the eye, and they are also a perfect way of adding a personal touch to the home.

Go to Normann Copenhagen's Website

Here the simple, graphic line in the Oona Carpet helps to direct the eye to the stacked Color Boxes filled with toys, while the red Circus Pouf creates a playful look in the room.

Shop Agnes

The Agnes Vases have a raw and graphical expression with a strong contrast. At the same time, they stand out as simple and clean. Use them in a combination with sweet pastels to soften the feel of the contrast.

Shop Sprinkle

The Sprinkle Quilt is a perfect example that graphic design doesn’t have to be sharp and straight but can have a more soft and organic expression. The Sprinkle Quilt has a beautiful abstract print inspired by various textures and pigments such as sand, pearls and confetti.

Sprinkle comes in a varied selection of subdued, calm tones and more contrasting, playful color combinations. Choose the smoke grey quilt for an understated elegance, or go for the blush quilt for a more vibrant and bold look.

Shop Normann Tea

The packaging of the Normann Tea has a dramatic and vivid feel that really draws the attention. The color explosion help underline the delicious taste of the tea. Normann Tea comes in 12 different varieties that include different types of rooibos tea, oolong tea, green tea, white tea and black tea.

Shop Geo

If you’re not that crazy about prints and patterns, don’t worry… You can still create a graphical expression by opting for items that have sharp lines, like the Geo Vacuum Jug, for example. The design of Geo is based on simple, geometric shapes; a mix of circles, cylinders, triangles, and squares. The graphic look is further emphasized by the daring color combinations.

Shop Brick

Brick is a cushion with a modern and elegant feel that plays with shapes, colors and materials. The contrasts are created  by the various shades and textures that are mixed together, while the different geometric shapes are reminiscent of patchwork, jigsaw puzzles and games such as Tetris.

Use the brightly colored cushions to spruce up a dark sofa, or create a more sophisticated look with simple colors such as creme and grey.
