The Outline chair was created during a design workshop arranged by the Japanese brand Ariake. The Danish design duo Norm Architects worked together with local Japanese craftsmen, looking for inspiring details at the factory and warehouse, letting the form of the chair be developed piece by piece, little by little. After drawing an outline of the chair, the designers, in collaboration with the craftsmen, refined the design, its proportions and small details like the rounded backrest, curved seat and tapered legs until they were happy with the drawing. To honour this process, they decided to name the chair Outline.

Norm Architects is a dynamic design duo composed by the Danish architects Kasper Rønn (b. 1976) and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen (b. 1976), both graduates of the Royal Danish Academy of fine Arts in Copenhagen. Being true modernists, they believe in design where the focus is in meeting a real need instead of creating one, and this reflects from their work as architects as well as industrial designers.
Though bearing a strong admiration for some of the most pure minimalists, Norm Architects is not easy to categorize. The architects see their work as a part of the Scandinavian modernist tradition – functional, minimal, poetic and timeless – with a profound understanding of natural materials and a special attention to detail. One of their most successful products is the MILK lamp, designed for &Tradition, that combines wood and glass.View all products

”Finnish Design Shop is the first place I go to furnish and decorate my newly renovated house, thanks to their beautiful, high-quality products and their excellent customer service.”
”Very good service. Unfortunately some plates were broken. Finnish design shop quickly responds and sends us new ones. That’s how service should be.”
”This is my fifth time shopping at Finnish design. Absolutely satisfied and happy with products and shopping experience. In looove with each item ❤️ Thank you for making my home cosy and beautiful.”
”First time shopping with Finnish Design Shop and I had a real easy, smooth experience. I had one return item and that was handled effortlessly.”
”Fast delivery. Ordered a hammock for my mothers birthday to be delivered at her adress. It’s in a somewhat rural area, but it was delivered at her door regardless. Great service.”
”I ordered a HAY side table that was on back order everywhere else. It was a few hundred crowns more at Finnish Design Shop, but shipped the next day and was delivered to my door two days later, which I think was worth the extra cost. It came well-packaged, protected and the item is in perfect condition. I’m happy and would shop here again.”
”I’m crazy for the Finnish Design Shop, and all that I’ve bought from them. And when questions arose (regarding a bookshelf that needed clever assembly), their representatives in Finland were so helpful and thoughtful.”
”I love this shop. All of my purchases have felt like a slice of Nordic happiness. Customer service is responsive and shipping is prompt. So nice to shop where I feel like a valued customer.”
”Both my purchases were excellent quality, priced at a very reasonable level and delivered in a matter of days despite me being the other side of the World. There is simply no way to describe that kind of a Company except amazingly good.”
