Let’s face it, everyone needs dinnerware, but choosing just the right collection can be a painstaking process of picking the right style, color and shape. If you’re anything like us, you no doubt want pieces that are practical, interchangeable and imaginative. The New Norm Dinnerware collection is all of those things and more. It’s truly a divine interpretation of modern design and we love it for its simplicity and unassuming modern style.
Interestingly enough, the New Norm Dinnerware collection came into being due to the collaboration between Menu, Norm Architects and Cofoco to bring the Nordic inspired restaurant Höst to life. The restaurant itself is a study in the unending appeal of urban design and the blending of rustic and modern materials to create a cohesive space. Recently, the restaurant won the coveted Restaurant and Bar Design Awards for ‘Best Restaurant’ and ‘Best European Restaurant’.
During the conceptualization phase of the award winning restaurant, the designers knew they wanted to create dinnerware that would serve as the perfect backdrop for every amazing dish served in the restaurant. It was then that the special series, the New Norm Dinnerware, came to be.
Now, for the first time outside of the restaurant, the New Norm Dinnerware collection is being made available to the public. Discerning patrons can pick and choose their favorite pieces to customize their very own collection while owning a piece of history all at the same time.
While the back story behind the dinnerware is certainly a conversation starter, you’ll appreciate the flawless European design and infinite number of ways to use each and every piece. As is typical of the region, each design combines form and function to create pieces that are not only exceptional to look at, but practical to use, as well.
The collection consists of plates and bowls in various sizes, which are designed to be used either as intended or in other unexpected ways. Plates become lids and uniquely shaped glasses stack one inside the other to save on storage and create a sophisticated sculpture of glass within your cabinetry.
You can choose to use the New Norm Dinnerware by itself or combine them with priceless heirloom pieces within your collection to create your own inspired look. No matter which way you go, you’re sure to create a table setting that will leave your guests wanting to know more and begging you to tell them how to achieve the same effect.
Imagine telling each of your dinner guests the incredible story of Höst and how your dinnerware came to be. So, go ahead and add pieces from this sensational collection to create a new norm in your very own home.
