Echoing the curves of Menu's companion sofa, Danish designer Theresa Rand chooses an elongated oval for the September Coffee Table. In inky black-ash veneer, the table hews to the same minimalist lines as the rest of the collection, free of any extraneous detail. Yet insetting the tabletop form into the leg framework provides a distinctive signature flourish.

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.
