Simon Legald has come up with two new designs for Normann Copenahgen. The Grow coffee table promises to amp up a cozy coffee corner in one’s living room. The 50s-inspired Jalousi cabinet offers to provide storage solutions around the house.
The Grow coffee table is made of solid oak in a finely balanced design with references to classic Danish shaker style. The table is named for the smooth transition between the tabletop and legs, which gives the impression that the legs are growing out of the tabletop.
With its simple silhouette and shapely details, Grow alludes to the luxury of simplicity. The tabletop’s chamfered edges and the oval legs lend the table a visual lightness, allowing the gorgeous oak wood to take center stage. Grow is a versatile design with timeless class.
Watches, conveyor belts and 50s furniture were among the sources of inspiration for the Jalousi furniture collection. From that cocktail, Simon Legald has created a contemporary collection of storage furniture, interpreting the classic roll-front cabinet.
The Jalousi collection, which consists of a sideboard and cabinets in two different sizes, is characterised by its minimalist idiom and a contrasting mix of materials. All of the designs feature practical rolling shutters in inviting shades of colour. The coloured shutters form an attractive contrast to the cabinet body in an oak veneer with legs of solid oak. The combination of materials and the graphic repetition of the shutter’s elements make the style young and masculine.
Jalousi is a versatile collection that can be used anywhere storage is required. For ring binders and office articles in an office environment, storage of glass and porcelain in the dining room, or for books and knickknacks in the living room. Movable shelves make it easy to adapt the cabinets to meet individual needs.
