Hamburg-based Frederik Kurzweg often takes design cues from industrial sights like a column of a bridge or a stack of construction pipes, as seen in his layered pendant light made of perforated steel sheets. Superpose radiates a soft ambient illumination and a direct light downwards—while its holed pattern casts lively shadows on its surroundings. Even when switched off, the hanging light continues to intrigue, with its coupled forms finished in a clarifying white powder-coat finish.

“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.”
