So, as soon as these stunning images of the new space they created for Danish design company MENU popped into my inbox, I knew I had to share them here.
MENU SPACE incorporates a newly completed showroom, office, and café, which have been designed to create a community around MENU as a design brand. The new creative initiative is aimed at bringing likeminded creative thinkers closer to the brand by encouraging them to share their stories, ideas and processes within a welcoming space where everyone is encouraged to stop by – for a coffee, a meeting, or simply to have a close up look at the designs of MENU.
The interior has been inspired by the raw and industrial setting of the surrounding up-and-coming Copenhagen harbour-side neighbourhood of Nordhavn, echoed in the use of strong materials such as concrete and steel which can be seen throughout. These provide a beautiful contrast to the objects and designs that fill the space, and offer a flexible backdrop upon which the showroom can be transformed again and again.
As with all Norm Architect designs, I love the simple aesthetic and sense of refined elegance that creates, while still packing a dynamic visual punch.
I can’t wait to visit next time I’m in town!
