NORR11 innovates and rethinks design classics and creates truly iconic pieces that withstand the test of time, both physically and aesthetically. All the products reflect a heritage stemming from the Danish Modern movement of the mid-1900s: clean, pure lines, naturalness, and excellent craftsmanship. NORR11’s furniture is timeless.
Second only to the pursuit of great design is NORR11’s desire to make quality designer furniture available to everyone. NORR11 believes in bringing aesthetic, functional, comfortable furniture to every home, not just the ones seen in magazines and publications.
Although rooted in Scandinavia, designers draw influence from cultures around the world: the Chinese Ming Dynasty, rough South Asian expressions; the American Shaker style of the 1800s; and Bauhaus style, to name a few. NORR11’s designers also draw inspiration from the materials themselves, focusing on the pureness of woods and excellence of joinery.
NORR11 focuses on high quality, natural, and honest materials in the production. The standards of craftsmanship are high, therefore NORR11 works in close collaboration with carefully selected manufacturers. The result is a finely crafted piece that continues to be admired throughout time.
Knut Bendik Humlevik from Norway and Rune Krøjgaard from Denmark are NORR 11’s main designers, and were both educated at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture in Copenhagen. Their passion for design is translated into the iconic pieces that NORR11 produces.
