The last few days have gone by much too quickly and if you follow my instagram stories and generally my instagram you know why. Since I wasnt able to post while spending a week in Copenhagen , I will take everything backwards and start from the last day! On friday after all my meetings and press events were finished I decided to visit again the Menu Space at Nordhavn, Menus new showroom and open cafe in the area. The last time I stopped by was for the openings night dinner during 3 days of design and I didn’t have time to take any photos, I more than made up this time around however. I was delighted to see some of the news coming out now and in the following months , if you are interested in sneak peeks there are plenty below!
The Offset sofa by Norm Architects as seen in the photo above is one of my favorites. The name comes from the design process when the architects experimented with its shape by offsetting proportions, playing with narrow armrests versus a thick generous seat while trying to research balance . The result is a welcoming sofa, contemporary yet very inviting.
New Norm Dinnerware will also be launching this Autumn in a new color, stormy grey. The dinnerware is finished in a special glaze that gives the porcelain its elegant watercolour-like texture.
The Zet storing system as seen above is a new shelving system with a light , airy and minimalistic appearance. It consists of only two parts, the wooden u-shapped shelves and the metal frame. By combining these two one can create endless formations while it can always be disassembled and reassembled in a different shape. On top of Zet lies the new Stone Lamp. Norm architects intended for it to be used exactly as a candle so it is designed to create a soft cozy light.
Another one of my favorites that will launch later this year is the Monuments Magazine holder. There are many magazine holders in the market, and certainly we can also build stacks of them right on top of our floors, however the Monuments plinth like design with two identical marble blocks imbues the holder with a monumental architectural feel, hence its name! This one got immediately on top of my wishlist.
Although the corner for the Eave modular sofa was still under construction, I managed to take a sneak peek photo for you. The sofa takes its name by the “eaves” the lower edges of the roof that overhang a wall. I expect to see the Eave in many combinations in many homes and offices alike, its versatility and its shape, a perfect blend of style and comfort, make it a great choice for any space. Sneak peek on the plinth, the TR bulb, the first collaboration between Menu and Tim Rundle. The dimmable lamp can be placed on the table or the wall, while its opal glass diffuses the light and prevents glare.
The last sneak peek for today comes in relation with the TR lamp in a form of a combination of the Tribeca series by Søren Rose Studios and the TR as seen on the top right of the photo above. This photo even though it only shows part of the lamp is one of my favorite photos, I feel it captures the essence of scandinavian minimalism perfectly.
I hope you enjoyed the small tour in the Menu Space, some of the things I saw made it on the top of my wishlist so I am hoping I will be able to budget some of them for my own space at home soon!
