Discover the lowdown on our seven favourite things about our new Danish furniture design brand, NORR11.
01.Use of Materials
The shapes, high quality materials and finishes used in the creation of each furniture piece are what first drew us to the NORR11 collection. Timber is a dominant material in Danish furniture design and NORR11’s use of suar, beech, oak and many other types of wood, combined with beautiful leathers and linens, creates desirable pieces that are classic yet modern.”
02.Danish furniture design
“The NORR11 collection has a distinctly modernist, Mid Century, Danish aesthetic with each piece beautifully crafted in the simple but striking Scandinavian style that we love. There is a focus on elegant, clean lines and pure shapes without compromising on comfort or function and the use of high quality tactile leathers sets it apart from other brands. The Langue Original Dining Chair in Brandy Premium Leather is one of our favourite pieces and is a great example of the brand’s philosophy.”
03.Practicality meets style
Products that are seriously stylish and practical at the same time are irresistible when it comes to what we choose for the Houseology furniture collections. Knut and Rune, the designers behind NORR11, are focused on achieving both and this is evident in their designs - it’s clear they are creating heirlooms of the future. The gorgeous Mammoth Chair is a perfect example, it combines a simple production technique with beautiful materials to create a piece that is already iconic as well as super stylish and comfortable.
04.Every piece has a story
The level of craftsmanship in the range is excellent and the finished result is a piece that is completely unique – it’s more like an original artwork than a piece of furniture. This is particularly true of designs such as the Rough Table where the wood is hand cut and then goes through a long drying process which gives every table its own individual character. The wood is then hand finished to ensure the highest possible quality.
Danish style furniture is typically pared back with little embellishment, however the NORR11 collection incorporates beautifully subtle detailing into the designs. From the engineered styling of the Industrial lighting collection to the leather finish on the NY11 Bar Chair, these little details are what makes the collection extra special.
While the range epitomises classic Danish modern furniture, NORR11 is easily incorporated into a variety of spaces and interior schemes. Adding a Man Chaise Longue to a laid-back Chic living room will give it an instant designer edge while introducing the Duke Coffee Table to a minimalist living room will evoke an instant Urban look. With products across furniture, lighting, outdoors and accessories, the collection offers wonderful versatility.
07.Danish modern furniture: icons of the future
Drawing on classic Danish traditions, fusing them with global design influences and adding subtle contemporary twists, the NORR11 collection is striking, elegant and timeless. This is a collection that you can really invest in knowing that the pieces will look great for many years to come.
