Our design products are sold worldwide in more than 70 countries - continuously developing and the main markets include Scandinavia, Germany, UK, Benelux, Italy and USA. Jan Andersen and Poul Madsen teamed up to create the Normann Copenhagen brand in 1999 with a vision to make a difference in the design industry. The turning point came in 2002 where they launched the first product, the lamp Norm 69 under the brand name: Normann Copenhagen. Within five years, more than 38 products followed, as well as collaborations with established design names and new talents from around the world. Today the brand continues to introduce exciting and bold design products. Especially the color choice of the products has changed into a new color scheme and is often inspired by trends you also find in the fashion world.
We believe in great design Normann Copenhagen is a way of living, a mindset. We love to challenge the conventional design rules. This is why you will find traditional materials put into untraditional use such as a Stone Hook made of Icelandic stones, a vase made out of silicon and last but not least a dog made out of plastic. Normann Copenhagen cooperates with a large number of Danish and International designers, each with their individual expression. They also work differently in the developing of new designs. Some works in glass, others in clay and some uses digital programs to create the design. In common is the passion for design and creating objects that challenges conventional thinking. The diversity of the designers is reflected in the Normann collection, spanning products of designers aged 27 to 90 years.
"When Jan and I look at new designs for Normann Copenhagen, we take a very intuitive approach to the products. A picture can say much more than words and if we are both struck by what we see, we are interested. We like products that have an original idea and a simple design, although we do not tie ourselves to a particular line." - Poul Madsen
