With the lounge chair in her Septembre seating, Danish designer Theresa Arns reworks a traditional furnishings mainstay with a contemporary point of view. Her version for Danish house Menu updates the notion of structured, more formal seating with generous proportions and ample cushions for a good measure of comfort. In dark or light stained oak, upholstered in a distinctive Kvadrat textile. Copenhagen-based Theresa, a recent graduate in architecture from the Royal Danish Academy of Arts, is quickly making her name in both furniture design and interiors.

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.
