The Connected Spaces Catalog – Menu 2018
Back in June 2017 Menu, in collaboration with Norm Architects opened their Menu Space project marking the Danish design brands new approach to the art of running a design business. Launched during Copenhagen’s 3 Days of Design, the newly finished showroom, office, and café exists as a co-working space where ‘great ideas, beautiful design, powerful concepts and inspiration’ can flourish and be shared with one another.
Menu have started the new year by continuing to explore the concept through the launch of the new ‘Connected Spaces’ catalogue. As we’ve come to expect from Menu, the collection contains references to soft minimalism, with industrial, raw materials combining beautifully with softer, warmer shapes and textures.
Among the new additions to the Menu collection are new finishes for the JWDA table lamp – with marble and matte black joining the lineup. The collection also includes a new lamp design, Phare.
Phare was designed by Warsaw-based design studio Umiar specifically for the apartment no. 50 at Le Corbusier’s ‘Cité Radieuse’ in Marseille. The lamp’s aesthetic is centered around the idea to create a full recyclable product that would become a versatile, everyday companion. The design is a result of a reduction process and by omitted superfluous elements it allows its function to give it its formal language.
