The New Norm

Culture, history, Scandinavia, Japan and modernism are some of the key values Danish studio Norm Architects used when they designed the new workspace for Kinfolk magazine in central Copenhagen.

The brief they got from Kinfolk’s Nathan Williams and Jessica Gray, who kept the project close to their chest, was to create a collaborative space where friends and partners could come together to share ideas and showcase their work – an office space that had an informal, elegant and homey atmosphere. The new design features a gallery as well as an office.

“The interior architecture is minimalist but thoughtful, with attention to every little detail," said Norm Architects. "Every single tone, nuance and material in the space has been carefully selected to create a harmonious, precise and natural feel with haptic qualities that we felt were well suited for the Kinfolk credo of slow living.”
