As versatile as it is timeless, the marble Plinth serves the dual purpose of being a beautiful, sculptural piece on its own and highlighting whatever objects rest upon it.
With this project Danish studio Norm Architects set out to rethink the uses of the plinth and to reveal the natural beauty of marble. The result is a series of podiums with multiple uses in the home, office or showroom. Plinth is available three sizes. The low rectangular version is ideal as a monumental coffee table. The cube makes a perfect bedside table or side table. Use the third Plinth in the traditional manner – as a podium on which to display a bust, sculpture, art books, plants or a lamp.
Norm Architects was founded in 2008 by Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn. Norm works within residential architecture, commercial interiors, industrial design, photography, graphics and art direction. The name ‘Norm’ signifies the importance of drawing inspiration from norms and traditions within the fields of architecture and aesthetics, which have been refined throughout the centuries.
Norm makes a virtue of focusing on quality, durability and timelessness. Their objective is to produce design which applies good materials and craftsmanship whilst embodying beauty, traditions, history and most importantly, timelessness.
