The Copenhagen-based duo known as Krøyer-Sætter-Lassen sees a joint or part of assembly as a design asset rather than something to be concealed. So it is with Nimbus, a table mirror in polished or bronzed brass with a gently curving stand and visible tilting points. Updating the classic looking glass, it adds a quietly gleaming presence to a dressing table, bathroom counter or tucked in a bookshelf.

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.
