Multi-award winning design & architecture studio, Norm Architects, have developed product collections for some of the most established furniture and lighting brands, including L.Ercolani and Menu. The Copenhagen-based studio combine an unmistakably Scandinavian style, with soft minimalism, traditional craftsmanship and natural materials.
Reprise Chair for L.Ercolani
Designed by Norm Architects for L.Ercolani in 2020, the Reprise Chair is the result of expert craftsmanship in woodturning and steam bending. Combining L.Ercolani’s democratic approach to design with a classic Danish silhouette from the 1950s, Reprise pays homage to Lucian Ercolani’s original steam-bending technique.
The perfectly curved seat back comprises a series of vertical spindles, whilst the tapered legs are fixed in place with a singular piece of solid hardwood, finished with a leather or webbed fabric seat.

Crafted from solid hardwood, this large dining table features an oval table top, combined with statement leg supports. Exquisitely crafted by skilled artisans, the Pennon Table is sure to become part of the home for generations to come.
Norm Architects subsequently led the creative direction of L.Ercolani’s new collection launch - photographed in situ by Christian Møller Andersen, at the brand’s Chiltern Hills studio in Buckinghamshire.
Wire Planter Collection for Menu
Inspiration for the Wire Planter collection, was derived from a Japanese garden the designers visited in L.A. The garden comprised both standing and suspended displays of plants, alongside Japanese trees and small fountains. This combination of natural elements and forms together became the starting point for the Wire Planter collection, designed by Norm Architects for Menu.
