Inspired by the umbrella- and shoe racks by the entrance of Japanese temples and shrines. With an ambition to incorporate many of the existing details from the collection into the design, we have added joinery in contrast colours – a construction that resembles that of the shelving system – as well as a paper braid handle to enhance tactility and create coherency across the collections.

The RESTAURANG ÄNG collection has its native setting in the Michelin-starred Swedish restaurant ÄNG, located in a newly built, modern glass house and neighboring the local vineyard Ästad. Focusing on Scandinavian design principles and serene materials, the bespoke interior explores similarities between Japanese and Scandinavian expression.Norm Architects realized a custom-designed interior design concept characterized by a selection of natural and refined materials. Inviting the Swedish local scenery surrounding Restaurang ÄNG inside the modern greenhouse, Norm Architects created a calm and tranquil retreat that merges the existing rural architectural principles with the more contemporary experience of ÄNG.
