Grab and go. With the Ace lounge collection, Normann Copenhagen fundamentally reimagines a sleekly upholstered sofa—as an easily transportable flat-pack. Danish design talent Hans Hornemann's goal was "a reasonable priced piece of furniture, without several weeks' lead time, that you can fall in love with and bring home with you straight away." It's easy to swoon for his relaxed minimalist concept with its rounded back, in a selection of attractively muted tones. And it takes just minutes to assemble Ace, as the back and seat screw together and the legs slot into pre-made holes. Appealing upholstery options include a vibrant velour and a flecked wool especially developed for the collection as well as fine leather.

“When Jan and I look at new designs for Normann Copenhagen, we take a very intuitive approach to the products,” according to cofounder Poul Madsen. “A picture can say much more than words and if we are both struck by what we see, we are interested.” Jan Andersen and Poul Madsen teamed up to create the Normann Copenhagen with a vision to shake up the contemporary design field. Now known the world over, they collaborate with new names and established talents from their native Denmark as well as internationally.
The company puts a premium on challenging conventional thinking in collections of tabletop products, lighting and furniture—with bold design strokes, innovative materials and a deft enjoyment of color. “We like products that have an original idea and a simple design, although we do not tie ourselves to a particular line,” Poul adds. “For us, the important thing is that the projects we get involved in bring something new into the world of design.”
