Normann Copenhagen is a Danish design company with the mission to create original and innovative products in a simple and contemporary design that withstands the test of time. Or in other words, to challenge conventional thinking and make the ordinary extraordinary through great design.
Established in 1999 by Jan Andersen and Poul Madsen, the Normann Copenhagen brand encompasses a wide and continuously growing collection of furniture, lighting, textiles and home accessories. The products are sold in more than 80 countries throughout the world and have collected more than 80 design awards along the way.
Sigurjón Pálsson graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. He then began working with design for others and subsequently in his own company. Besides having won numerous awards for his designs, Pálsson has distinguished himself as a recognized writer of crime novels. He always strives to find the right combination of shape, function, and materials in his designs with the aim of creating a design that not only looks beautiful but also correct.
“Looking right is always more beautiful than just looking beautiful. When form, function and materials are combined in a simple harmonious way, most likely the design will not need much work on the appearance. I’ve always said that the key to perfection in design is simplicity. The highest aim is to reach the bare minimum – to cut away all that is not necessary”.
