RESTAURANT ÄNG

N–CT02

NORM ARCHITECTS

The coffee table was designed as a simple solution to the ever-changing needs of the restaurant. The cubic design language offers an understated modularity, making it easy to rearrange in the dinning setting as the amount of guest and group sizes changes through the evening – resulting in a table than can easily stand alone as a plinth-like object, while also working great in numbers.

THE RESTAURANG ÄNG PROJECT

The RESTAURANG ÄNG collection has its native setting in the Michelin-starred Swedish restaurant ÄNG, located in a newly built, modern glass house and neighboring the local vineyard Ästad. Focusing on Scandinavian design principles and serene materials, the bespoke interior explores similarities between Japanese and Scandinavian expression.

For this case study 06, both Norm Architects and Keiji Ashizawa Design have designed new bespoke furniture items and accessories that will officially be added to the collection in this year.

Norm Architects

Norm Architects was founded in 2008. The multidisciplinary design studio works within the fields of industrial design, residential architecture, commercial interiors, photography and art direction. Much like human well-being, the essence of Norm Architects’ work is found in balance — between richness and restraint, order and complexity.

Each project — whether in architecture, interiors, design or creative direction — is imbued with the same intrinsic quality: a simplicity that carries bigger ideas. Guided by the body and mind rather than by trends or technology, their projects explore ideas that not only look good, but feel good too: Architecture be- comes thoughtful, minimalism acquires softness and visual matter assumes haptic qualities. Their work is sharp and crisp, and exudes, tacitly, a focus on quality, details and durability. Situated in one of the oldest streets of Copenhagen, Denmark, the studio is respectful to its context here and build on the traditions of Scandinavian de- sign — of timeless aesthetics, natural materials and upholding modernist principles of restraint and refinement. Through exploring what it is that heightens the human senses regardless of personal preference, their projects strip spaces, objects, ideas and images back to their simplest form. Their expertise lies in finding the balance — when there’s nothing more to either add nor take away.
