Back in 2011 when MENU and Norm Architects were working on a brand new series of dinnerware, it became clear to us that a series with such a unique Nordic feel needed an equally unique base - something way out of the ordinary. So we joined forces with Copenhagen restaurateurs Cofoco and together we designed, invented and built what is today known as the World's best design restaurant: Restaurant Höst in the centre of Copenhagen. So, it all started with a plate of New Norm Dinnerware. Much like the ones you can get right here.
New Norm Dinnerware expresses the purity, simplicity, and honesty so particularly characteristic of the Nordic way. At the same time, the dinnerware reinterprets the well known and challenges the traditional ways of staging a meal. The diversity of colours and materials in New Norm Dinnerware sets the creativity free.
All New Norm Dinnerware products are produced with isostatic press technology to improve durability. The production takes place in a state of the art European factory, specialising in high-quality porcelain for restaurants and hotels. This gives your plates and bowls an exceptional durability.
All designs are colour-glazed and burned twice at 1400 degrees for maximum strength and a special glazing process gives each item a unique soft aquarelle look, and makes sure that no two plates, bowls or cups are alike. Around 100 people are involved in the process of crafting, quality controlling and caring for each piece of New Norm Dinnerware.
