BoBedre has chosen the winners of their Design Awards 2014. Menu A/S scored a double victory; Designer of the Year for Norm Architects, and Entrepeneur of the Year for Bjarne Hansen, Creative Director.
Designer of the Year
Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn have reinvented Menu’s design identity with their authentic style and form. The verdict from our jury:
“Norm equals good taste. They are representative of the New Nordic wave, but have a DNA entirely their own. Norm operates in a very conceptual and all-encompassing fashion. Their creations fit together nicely.”
Entrepeneur of the Year
Bjarne Hansen, Creative Director, Menu A/S
“This is the man behind one of the most successful turnarounds in the design industry. That this man not only donates most of his company’s profits to charity, but also concurrently works with aid organization Danida on a development project in Nepal, makes Bjarne Hansen more than deserving of this prestigious award.”
