Fine Dining, Bathed in Monochromes
Architecture & Interiors
The Danish architectural firm NORM doesn’t beat around the bush when explaining its mission: “To find the simplest shape for a given task without forgetting the beauty of the shape and the details…to reach a point where there is nothing to add and nothing to take away that can make the product better.”
Well, better said than done—unless you’re NORM, which does precisely what it says, as evidenced by interior work for the Copenhagen restaurant Höst. It’s hard to imagine how this meticulously nuanced space—invoking quasi-rural vignettes of weathered materials, industrial elements, and painterly monochchromes—could possibly have been done better.
