The home belongs to Frederik Werner – designer and partner of the Copenhagen based design firm – and is a perfect example of their love for soft minimalism. 

With the utmost respect for the historic elements within its structure, the home has all the signature Norm elements – soft neutral tones, warm oak accents, and furniture designed by the firm itself.

At Norm Architects, we firmly believe that surrounding ourselves with natural materials and colours contributes to our well-being. This is how we create a sanctuary in this hectic world.

Playing with the balance between light and heavy elements, the dining table is dimensioned like the branches of a tree — thus making it appear paper-thin from some angles and more robust where it needs to be. Like with the architectural works of the studio, Norm have explored the negative space within the furniture pieces, emphasising the materials and details by highlighting the places where the light can shine through. The N-DT01 Dining Table is one of twelve tailormade furniture pieces that make up the first collection of Karimoku Case Study, the Kinuta Terrace project, all drawing on the natural references of the connected courtyard in an attempt to invite in nature as much as possible — in their design language as well as through their material compositions.

In the living room you’ll spot one of our favourite pieces from the Karimoku Case Study collection – the N-SS01 Shelving System in a beautiful smoked oak finish. 

The home merges the architect’s love of Scandinavian design tradition and Japanese aesthetics, making it a cosy refuge to retreat to in a busy everyday life.

Most of our furniture, lights, and our kitchen were designed by my colleagues or myself.
