Hashira Cluster Pendant Lamp Design by Norm Architects for Menu
Menu’s Hashira cluster pendant is a modern, stripped interpretation of a traditional Japanese rice paper lantern by design duo Norm Architects, Kasper Rønn and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen. The minimalist shades made from a linen fabric create an intriguing contradiction: while they give the luminaire its sculptural, column-like form together with the visible structure, they also diffuse the light into an extraordinarily soft and ambient glow. The elegant, understated form of the Hashira cluster pendant fits just as perfectly in the bedroom or dining room as it does in public spaces.SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW
Norm Architects with Danish Architects Kasper Rønn and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen
Norm Architects is a dynamic design duo composed by the Danish architects Kasper Rønn (b. 1976) and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen (b. 1976), both graduates of the Royal Danish Academy of fine Arts in Copenhagen. Being true modernists, they believe in design where the focus is in meeting a real need instead of creating one, and this reflects from their work as architects as well as industrial designers.
Though bearing a strong admiration for some of the most pure minimalists, Norm Architects is not easy to categorize. The architects see their work as a part of the Scandinavian modernist tradition – functional, minimal, poetic and timeless – with a profound understanding of natural materials and a special attention to detail. One of their most successful products is the MILK lamp, designed for &Tradition, that combines wood and glass.SHOP NOW
