Suggested by the classic architectural support that projects from a building, design studio Kroyer-Sætter-Lassen devise a wall-hung shelf that plays up a trio of noble materials. Menu’s versatile piece translates the concept with a surface in creamy marble that contrasts with the oak wood mount. And the bronzed steel holding bracket also serves as an ad-hoc hanger for a towel in the bath or scarf in the entryway.

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.
