Normann Copenhagen designers nominated for prestigious Norwegian design award.
It´s truly a great time of year when it comes to award nominations in the design industry. This time around, it is the Norwegian interior magazine Bo Bedre who are paying tribute the Norwegian design scene. Normann Copenhagen has the pleasure of working with a couple of the nominated Norwegian designers.
Accessory of the Year: Ekko throw blanket
Ekko has a light effervescent, graphic pattern of repetitive circles and cylinder shapes that overlap. The surprising and vibrant color combinations make up a design full of visual impact. The two young designers have utilized the traditional weaving technique of jacquard weaving creating an inverted pattern on the back. This makes the throw blanket just as beautiful to look at from the front as from the back.
The Ekko throw blanket is made of 100% New Zealand wool and is available in four indulging color combinations; rasberry/mint, navy/rose, yellow/dusty blue and smoke/grey
Günzler.Polmar´s playfulness and creativity behind the design of Ekko throw blanket is one of the reasons why they have been nominated in the category: Accessory of the Year, at the Bo Bedre’s design award.
“The award for this years accessories goes to a product that adds “that extra touch” to the interior and in itself has that little extra in regards to quality and expression.”
Best of luck to the talented Günzler.Polmar from Normann Copenhagen!
Günzler.Polmar joined the Normann Copenhagen collection in 2014 with their beautiful Ekko throw blanket
Newcomer of the year: Everything Elevated
The two young designers from Everything Elevated is nominated in the category: Best Newcomer of the Year. It was also in 2014 that Normann Copenhagen began the collaboration with the two designers, as we fell in love with their little wooden figure; the Swan.
Everything Elevated wishes to be anonymous, hence the black/white portrait. The design studio is based in New York.
About the nominations for this category, Bo Bedre says that “The award is given to a young talent who has attracted attention and has been able to break out of the crowd with his/hers design over the last year, and a designer that we believe in for the future.”
Swan is a wooden decorative object. Swan was lanuched in fall 2014 and in its short life it already won the prestigious IF Design Award 2015 earlier this year.
The best of luck to Everything Elevated from us too!
The awards will be handed out at an award show held on 26th August 2015 in Oslo. We will keep you posted!
