Normann Copenhagen launched at Milan Design Week 2016 the Ace lounge collection by the young Danish designer Hans Hornemann. It combines luxurious upholstered furniture with functional flat-pack principles, in an expressive design inspired by an urban lifestyle.
Ace is delivered in two attractive fabrics, a vibrant velour and a flecked wool textile, as well as soft, exclusive leather. The woollen textile, “Nist”, has been developed in-house by Normann Copenhagen to complete the characteristic visual style. Nist is manufactured using an untraditional weaving technique and contains 52% linen, which produces an attractive natural flecking of the fabric. The velour brings Ace a seductive elegance, while Nist gives the chair a more stringent, masculine look. In addition to the Ace lounge chair, the Ace collection includes a sofa, a dining table chair and a footstool.
I love this beautiful and elegant collection that has a delicate proportional balance between weight and lightness with a relaxed and stylish attitude.
