Norm Architects

Founded in Copenhagen by Kasper Rønn and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen, Norm Architects are widely celebrated for their timeless and functional design language. Each project they undertake appears analogous with the next - an impressive achievement considering their remit covers residential architecture, commercial interiors, industrial design, photography, graphics and art direction. It is rare to see a single studio earn continued praise in so many fields. 

Like many of the creatives we feature, Norm treat quality, craftsmanship and design thinking as importantly as form. In their own words: The design process of Norm Architects is based on not just asking the question “how?” but to ask the question “why?”. Why should we create this? Why does the need for this product exist? Why should people buy it? Why should they want to keep it? When you ask the question “why?” you open up for deeper design dimensions and you embark on the road to create truly durable products.”

Particular highlights are their Afternoon Chair, created for Menu, and their stunningly minimal Copenhagen Townhouse interior.
