Designer(s) of the Month – Norm Architects

Norm Architects was founded by Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn in 2008.

Born in 1976, Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn first met in high school before going on to graduate as architects from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. In 2008 the pair joined forces to found NORM, a multidisciplinary design studio focusing on resident architecture, commercial interiors and industrial design.

In founding Norm Architects Kasper Rønn and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen's mission statement was to create timeless architecture and meaningful design products.

Despite their shared love of design and architecture their distinctly different approaches to these fields has arguably resulted in Norm's success. Rønn's love of technology and Bjerre-Poulsen's focus on shape and tactility has led to Norm's balanced creative outlook.

Norm respect and build on the traditions of Scandinavian design—of timeless aesthetics, natural materials and upholding Modernist principles of restraint and refinement.  Their expertise lies in finding the balance—when there’s nothing more to either add or take away.

Norm Architects x  Menu

Danish furniture brand MENU have a simple philosophy - "we want to make the world better, less complicated, a little bit nicer to wake up to. Collaborating with talented designers, we make objects to be treasured now and forever". It is a philosophy in keeping with the Norm Architecture approach and so it's no surprise that the two have collaborated so successfully over the years.

The Wire Plant Pots, Carrie Lamp and Towel Ladder are perfect examples of the understated elegance and functionality you'll find from Menu and Norm Architects.

I have rarely experienced such excellent quality advice, support and reliability. Your staff communicate effectively and helpfully. I am a truly satisfied customer. I love my String Shelving and I will not hesitate to return to Utility for my next purchase. Thank you!

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

Excellent customer service and immediate response to enquiry (live chat). Very happy every time used Utility both online and on high street.

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
