Cushion design has been right up there with re-inventing the wheel—few, a very few, stop us in our tracks. Yet the colorful, geometric patchwork of the Brick collection by Britt Bonnesen for Normann Copenhagen had us like a deer in headlights. The combination of colors and wovens, some with a decidedly suiting sensibility, make these cushions a very stylish complement to a room.
They are also a comfort to live with. We have 5 in different colorways on our living room couch. Even a single cushion on a sofa or on a bed can give a space an oomph of brightness. Or throw several together on the floor. Our toddler loves to. On that note, they clean up very easily with a damp brush or cloth. Or simply unzip them and send them to the dry cleaner.
“When Jan and I look at new designs for Normann Copenhagen, we take a very intuitive approach to the products,” according to cofounder Poul Madsen. “A picture can say much more than words and if we are both struck by what we see, we are interested.” Jan Andersen and Poul Madsen teamed up to create the Normann Copenhagen with a vision to shake up the contemporary design field. Now known the world over, they collaborate with new names and established talents from their native Denmark as well as internationally.
The company puts a premium on challenging conventional thinking in collections of tabletop products, lighting and furniture—with bold design strokes, innovative materials and a deft enjoyment of color. “We like products that have an original idea and a simple design, although we do not tie ourselves to a particular line,” Poul adds. “For us, the important thing is that the projects we get involved in bring something new into the world of design.”
