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

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.
