Nicholai Wiig Hansen's beautifully adapted lounge version of My Chair still hews to his desire for "something familiar and something new, something neutral yet characterful." The minimal chair—in natural or smoked oak, walnut or birch veneer with clear lacquer or in a painted ash version—has an organic feel, with its matching legs in the same finish. Rounded corners and curved contours offer easy comfort and a welcoming feel while the wide variety of choices lends flexibility to accommodate a variety of settings.

“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.”
