The Orgatec is the world's leading trade fair for Office and Facility, which takes place in Cologne every two years. District has travelled there to bring you the latest news in this particular sector as well as catch up with our valued suppliers and get a front row seat to the new products they will be unveiling.
Today Normann Copenhagen opens their stand at the Orgatec furniture fair in Cologne with new designs that complement their existing collection to create well considered office environments and work spaces.
AMP GETS AMPLIFIED
A show-stopping design has now been added to the Amp lighting collection by Danish designer Simon Legald. The idiom of the Amp table lamp and pendants has been continued in an impressive chandelier, worthy of any ballroom.
Just as the existing designs in the collection, the Amp chandelier is made from a refined combination of solid marble and light glass. The chandelier is built up around a central steel cylinder, from which small arms grow out to form a voluminous oval shape. Each arm is crowned by a miniature version of the Amp table lamp, which by virtue of repetition breathes life into a sculptural and dramatic lamp.
ERA WITH A TWIST
ERA SWIVEL AND COFFEE TABLE
The prizewinning lounge collection Era gets a new twist – quite literally. The Era lounger is now introduced as a swivel chair, with a streamlined base in shiny aluminium. A matching footstool and side table with a granite table top have also been added to the collection, opening up for new opportunities to create exclusive lounge areas. The Era lounge collection combines modern production techniques with traditional furniture craftsmanship in a timeless and characterful design.
The “X” shape of the swivel foot is repeated in the base of the new Era side table, which comes with a solid granite table top. With its vibrant pattern and subdued shades of colour, the granite makes a flattering partner to the cool aluminium base. There are three different types of granite to choose from, with black, grey or pink dominating their colour scheme.
FLEXIBLE NEWS IN THE FORM SERIES
FORM IN SWIVEL AND STACKABLE VERSIONS
A flawlessly cohesive design and visionary variations characterise the bestselling Form collection, which was introduced in 2014 and is being continually expanded. The two exciting new additions to Form have flexibility as their common denominator. At the Orgatec 2016 fair, you can experience Form for the first time, with a swivel or stacking base.
The new swivel base in cool aluminium gives the Form chair a masculine and exclusive look as well as comfortable freedom of movement, making the chair eminently suitable for places like conference rooms and restaurants.
SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST A CHAIR
JUST BARSTOOL AND OAK VERSION
The Just chair, designed by Iskos-Berlin is “just” a chair, yet a very special one. The award-winning chair collection has brought joy since 2013, and has now been accompanied by two new designs: a Just barstool and a new version of the chair with an oak base.
Just is characterised by its subdued and harmonious idiom that makes the chair suitable for numerous environments and styles. Iskos- Berlin say:
“Just is not born out of the desire to design a different chair. On the contrary, we wanted to use innovative moulding and assembly techniques to achieve an elegant and subtle result, full of hidden details. Good design does not necessarily have to make a lot of fuss - those who want to will see the details.”
Bridge is the name of a new table design by Danish designer, Simon Legald. Inspired by bridge constructions, he has created a simple yet elegant table that exudes resilience and strength. Functional details and considerable dimensions make Bridge the perfect choice for a conference table.
Bridge is available in 2 widths and 4 lengths, the longest of which stretches all the way to 5.40 m. The table is also available with cable grommets and cable trays integrated below the table top.
BEHIND ROLLER SHUTTERS
JALOUSI FURNITURE COLLECTION
The Jalousi furniture collection is inspired by watches, conveyor belts and 50s furniture. From that cocktail, Simon Legald has created a contemporary collection of storage furniture, interpreting the classic roll-front cabinet. The Jalousi collection, which consists of a sideboard and cabinets in two different sizes, is characterised by its minimalist idiom and a contrasting mix of materials.
