Normann Copenhagen is a Danish design company with the mission to create original and innovative products in a simple and contemporary design that withstands the test of time. Or in other words, to challenge conventional thinking and make the ordinary extraordinary through great design.
Established in 1999 by Jan Andersen and Poul Madsen, the Normann Copenhagen brand encompasses a wide and continuously growing collection of furniture, lighting, textiles and home accessories. The products are sold in more than 80 countries throughout the world and have collected more than 80 design awards along the way.
Born in Berlin, Andreas Kowalewski began his path in design with a cabinetmaker apprenticeship, after which he went on to study Industrial Design at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen. Since his graduation in 2006, he has developed products, furniture and lighting for some of the leading companies in the design field. In 2012, Andreas founded his Amsterdam based studio, where he works on various design solutions, covering the overall spectrum of the design process.
Andreas’ work is strongly influenced by his passion for experimenting with materials, construction principles and innovative technologies. He is driven by an ambition to create design solutions that have meaning and reduce complexity, while using as little material as possible.
“I am continuously searching for purity in form and detail as well as perfection in well-made objects. Purposeful objects, which value craftsmanship and inspire the imagination of people.”
