Normann Copenhagen.

Normann Copenhagen is a Danish design company founded by Poul Madsen and Jan Andersen in 1999. In 2001 the team met Danish designer Simon Karkov and it was this meeting that started it all with the exchanging of inspirations and ideas. Karkov shared with the team his Norm 69 Lamp that he designed back in 1969 and Madsen and Andersen loved it so much they decided to put it into production. With that, Normann Copenhagen was born as a design producer. Since then, Madsen and Andersen carefully select pieces for their ever growing range of furniture, lighting, textiles and homewares. Throughout this journey of selection and production Normann Copenhagen has picked up over 50 design awards along the way.




For Poul Madsen what makes a piece is the way it stands out from the rest. Poul states "It has to be something we look at and think “this is special, something we haven’t seen before”. What makes a design special can come from any part of the design process. Sometimes it is the function of a product which is unique, sometimes it is using a material in a new way, and sometimes it is the shape itself. It can even be as simple as the connection of two elements or something small like that. In general, we like a design to have clean lines and a certain simplicity. However, there is always that little something that adds character to the design. I guess you can call our style minimalism with an attitude”. And as we all know, that's exactly what i'm all about. So please check out the small Krenit Dish and Agnes Vase I have featured here. I am in love with the simple yet stylish design of these pieces and will definitely be picking up more in the future. They also make fantastic gifts!
