A new Nordic perspective
by Martina Metzner | 7/21/2014
Sit yourself down comfortably and refresh your dearest memories when Normann Copenhagen introduces its armchair Memory and bookcase Collect - both designed by Ole Jensen. The two unique pieces of furniture are part of New Danish Modern - Normann Copenhagen's Danish furniture collection, which combines traditional Danish crafts and manufacture with modern designs. It is all about the pleasure of recognition. Collect is a bookcase that, with its oblique expression and spring-green colour has been designed for all lovers of good design who like edgy furniture. Use the bookcase as a framework for important things - things that awake good memories. Memory is a warm and friendly armchair that makes time to sit and think. It is upholstered, and with its broad, square arms, it embraces you and invites you to sit down and relax completely. Ole Jensen explains: "We all have special objects that refresh memories - things that have a meaning and create the pleasure of recognition - it could be anything from a football to a stone found on a walk on the beach. I wanted to design furniture that arouses immediate recognition in both design and use. 'Reversed perfection', both items have an immediate freedom in manufacture and details. The bookcase has quite deliberately been put together badly, and the chair consists of patches as in a patchwork quilt, which gives them a somewhat home-made character, without allowing this to compromise their quality. This is furniture that fits well into all of the Normann Copenhagen's New Danish Modern collection." Lean back in Memory and put your favourite objects on display in Collect.
