A first look at the new MENU design | Maison & Objet

At Maison & Objet many Scandinavian Brands I got to know better during our Designtrade blogger tour this last June. Or worked with for DesignTrade in our blogger zone were also present in Paris. It was a pleasure to meet some of them again. But as this fair is huge, the brands are very busy and I only had a few hours it was impossible to see all. 

I did promised myself though to have a look at the stand of Danish brand MENU as I am totally in love with everything the do and wanted to see the Flip around table. As you might remember we were invited for a dinner at restaurant Host with them. I just got an email from Menu saying that the restaurant is the winner of the 2012/2013 Best Design Restaurant of the world Award!

By then... we never got to meet them in person by then as they were working towards a deadline for their brand book. If you have the time you should have a look at the amazing pictures here: MENU brandbook. (not online anymore)

At the fair I also noticed the little teaser they gave of the new table designed by MENU which will soon be launched and was firstly presented here. The table has nice accessories, such as this lamp. I had the pleasure to have a nice chat with Bjarne Hansen himself who told me the wonderful story behind the design. More info will be coming soon. So how do you like this new table!

Great to see more of Menu, Desiree! I can't get enough of looking at their designs. This time in Paris! I have been a Menu and Norm fan since the start of my webshop,and now, with Jonas Bjerre Poulsen as Menu's new Design Director it will become even better! In case you or your readers are looking for the Flip Around Table and other new Menu products: many of them can be found at Expected to arrive in October!
