Menu AS new furniture

Menu AS new furniture

It's that time of the year where brands get ready to present their new additions to their collections and we were obviously very curious on what Menu had for us for this A/W 2017 making their collection even more enticing.
This is their new furniture:
Afteroom Plus Dining Chair 
The beautifully minimal Afteroom Chair pays homage to functionalism and the Bauhaus school of art. A MENU bestseller since its launch in 2012, the chair is the work of Afteroom, a young Stockholm studio founded by designers Hung-Ming Chen and Chen-Yen Wei. The duo takes the chair to a new level with Afteroom Chair Plus. Like the original, the chair is deconstructed and stripped of unnecessary components, with the additional feature of a wider backrest and a luxurious upholstering of both seat and backrest. The result is a blissfully simple chair that embraces minimalism and clean lines without compromising on comfort.
Eave Modular Sofa: 
A brand new sofa designed by Norm Architects, Menu introduces it's first modular seating system.
Inspired by architecture Eave Modular Sofa takes its name from “eaves” – the lower edges of the roof that overhang a wall. The sofa’s distinctive detail is its internal “eaves” – curved upholstered armrests that lend the sofa its expressive character. A perfect blend of style and comfort, Eave is a generous sofa that will encourage owners to relax. The seating angle is also ideal for offices or public spaces, enabling the user to sit actively engaging with work. Figure out your own configuration to suit your space.
Nono Table:
NoNo is characterised by lightness. The elegant and slim legs provide the full support for the solid glass tabletop that beautifully reflects its surroundings. The modern materials emphasize the clean and stylish aesthetics. And the simplistic yet eye-catching design makes NoNo a great addition to any living area. NoNo Table is the result of an encounter between two Scandinavian studios, Note Design Studio and Norm Architects. During a visit to Milan, the Swedish and Danish designers met by coincidence – and started talking. Amongst many other things, the topic of the conversation was a shared interest in the juxtaposition of solid tops supported by slender legs. The idea of a collaboration quickly followed. NoNo is available in two sizes
Offset Sofa:
A contemporary sofa, understated yet statement-making, Offset is the result of research into ‘balance’ by Norm Architects. The studio wanted to create a sofa as simple as possible while embracing a set of paradoxes: making it substantial yet delicate in appearance, architectural yet inviting and homey. In the studio, the designers experimented with offsetting – playing with proportions, narrow armrests versus a thick generous seat. The clean-lined boxy shape is inspired by minimalist art, gently softened for a welcoming expression and maximised for comfort.
Snaregade Table Oak:
Originally Norm Architects designed a table especially for Bjarne Hansen – the CEO and founder of Menu. The table was intended for Bjarne’s living room at home. While at it, Norm Architects also manufactured a few tables for their own studio. These tables have been in use ever since. Besides being the ideal office desk, the rectangular variant works perfectly as a dining table. The oval variant, great for the kitchen, would also be equally suited as a meeting table and in the dining room. Despite the uncomplicated design, this series of tables is a genuine eye-catcher due to the uniquely designed leg construction in combination with a clean and sophisticated table surface. Now available in solid oak.
Zet Storing System:
ZET is a smart shelving system with a light, airy, and minimalistic appearance. The whole system consists of two components only: the wooden u-shaped shelves and the metal frame construction. By assembling those two parts, you are able to build several different formations in order to achieve the expression you prefer – right now and going forward. ZET is produced in high quality materials and the stabilising system provides a firm stability. The design is easily assembled and can be changed and remodelled whenever you want. Florian Kallus and Sebastian Schneider founded Kaschkasch in 2011. The German designer duo always strives to get the maximum out of the minimum by breaking every idea down to its essential elements. Every piece of their work has a little something to discover – something that speaks of the designers’ love for details.
