Designer Nina Bruun pitches a curve with her streamlined wall-mounted shelf in rich oak veneer. Epoch features a dual function, with a deep shelf to hide everyday clutter that reverses to a raised surface for displaying decorative objects. In a choice of sizes and 2 wood finishes, it looks as striking alone as in rows of multiples and also coordinates with its sister coat rack (also at A+R).

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.
