Playing with the concept of balance, Copenhagen designer Aleksandar Lazic finds a compelling synergy in his table lamp with its raw travertine base and smooth bronzed domed shade. Illumination from an LED light source radiates across the unworked stone, revealing shadows and tonal variations. Fitted with a dimmer switch easily located on the top, Reverse seems lit from within and casts a warm light on a bedside table or a subdued glow from a sideboard.

From lighting and furniture, tabletop to bath, the wide offerings of Menu speaks to this Copenhagen-based company’s guiding quest for functional originality. “It’s about creating aesthetically pleasing designs that evoke true feelings as well as improving processes in people’s daily lives,” says Menu founder Bjarne Hansen. This is also reflected in its stable of influential creatives including Norm Architects, Afteroom Studio, Jonas Wagell and Krøyer-Sætter-Lassen among others standouts.
Menu is just as dedicated to responsible manufacturing as innovation. Working to locate new partners in developing countries around the world, the company searches out local factories or small private co-operations to turn out high quality goods and also provide a better economic foundation for the people involved in that production.
