Pitch Black

For the second year Norm Architects has been the designers of the Cabinetmakers Autumn Exhibition that runs from 30 September to 30 of October. The theme of the exhibition challenges shadows and transparency with the title Pitch Black. Black like the lines of a paper sketch and black like the absence of light found in this years location – The Lapidarium of Kings, King Christian IV´s former brew house at Frederiksholms Kanal in central Copenhagen. In this historic surroundings the exhibition invites the spectator to explore the dark like being in an attic filled with treasures. The strong contrasts and the black appearance of the furniture make you wonder what is silhouette and what is shadow. Light and dark separates objects and space and draws attention to each piece. Norm Architects has also designed the Snarregade Bench in collaboration with Frederik Werner showcased at the exhibition.Photo: Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen.
