We spoke with the team to find out more.
Where does the inspiration for your product range come from?
NORR11’s furniture reflects a heritage stemming from the Danish Modern movement of the mid- 1900s: clean, pure lines, naturalness and excellent craftsmanship. NORR11’s furniture is timeless. Although rooted in Scandinavia, the designers draw influence from cultures around the world: the Chinese Ming Dynasty, rough South Asian expressions, the American Shaker style of the 1800s, and Bauhaus style, to name a few. NORR11’s designers also draw inspiration from the materials themselves, focusing on the pureness of woods and excellence of joinery.
Knut Bendik Humlevik from Norway and Rune Krøjgaard from Denmark are NORR11’s main designers, and were both educated at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture in Copenhagen.
What may someone not commonly know about Norr11 products?
Our design process is purposely planned to be very loose and playful which opens up for creativity and playing with exclusive materials. The Line Lamp is a very good example of this: Our designer has used highly exclusive materials such as marble, brass and aluminium, but have hidden the exclusivity of the products and made the lamp appear very raw to capture a different expression than usually used with these products.
