”Through experiments with the balance between lightness and heaviness, making it paper thin when seen from one angle and solid from others, we’ve emphasised the material in a simple design”.
The Oku table top is produced in oak veneer with round edges, adding an elegant lightness to the large surface. The legs of turned oak timber sections, is positioned sporadic to create the illusion of a floating table top, while also adding a sculptural detail to the table.

Kristian Sofus Hansen
Kristian creates unique pieces through simple, functional and considered design. His designs aim to merge traditional design methods and new production techniques into high quality pieces of furniture and product design.

Tommy Hyldahl
Tommy has been responsible for the creative DNA of NORR11 since 2010, and has worked with a number of furniture designers.
His interest in materials and product manufacturing is clearly seen throughout the whole collection.

Since 2015 the two designers began a design collaboration. From Tommys many travels around Asia and Kristians studies in Japan, they strive to combine their passion for Japanese simplicity, ethnic details and Scandinavian tradition in timeless pieces of furniture.


At NORR11 we strive to rethink Scandinavian design in order to create timeless furniture pieces. We seek inspiration from nature and raw materials, which is evident in our products that often redefine materials, techniques and forms. Fusing together cultures from around the world with simple Scandinavian design principles, we generate a unique perspective on furniture design. Our name stands for our Nordic heritage and the day it all began, the 11th of November 2011. Welcome to NORR11.
