Normann Copenhagen receives international recognition for new furniture venture called Era

Normann Copenhagen’s new lounge collection Era has barely come on to the market before it is honoured with the prestigious German Design Award.

It has won the German Design Award for 2015 in the category of Home & Decoration. The award is given for outstanding product design. Not only did Era win in its category, the range was also bestowed with an additional honour from the jury, a so-called Special Mention, for its exceptional design quality.

The award is presented by the German Design Council, who has represented the German design scene for the past 60 years. The German Design Award is a highly respected international award and only designs nominated by the council can be taken into consideration. A jury of international experts from various fields within the world of design then choose the winner.

Normann Copenhagen is well known for its eye-catching range of home accessories but in recent years the company has also worked on expanding its collection with long-lasting furniture of the highest quality.

Says Normann Copenhagen CEO and co-founder Poul Madsen, “We are very proud of the recognition we have received for our initiatives in furniture design. We launched two wide ranges of furniture in 2014, Era and Form. They have both received an overwhelmingly positive reception, right from the very beginning. Receiving an award like the German Design Award is a major pat on the back and positions Normann Copenhagen as a ground-breaking and significant player in the furniture market.”

Era is a range of lounge chairs designed by Normann Copenhagen’s in-house designer Simon Legald. It was created in the cross field between modern production methods and traditional craftsmanship. The versatility and durable construction of the range makes it suitable for both public and private environments.

Normann Copenhagen will receive the award at an award ceremony, which will take place during the Ambiente International Frankfurt Fair, Feb. 13-17.
