Kinfolk Workspace | Norm Architects

Given the minimalism and muted aesthetic of the publication, it’s no surprise that Kinfolk’s new Copenhagen workspace reflects the same principles. Designed by Danish studio, Norm Architects, the space is formed of a gallery, collaborative areas and open plan office. The materials, attention to detail and soft colour palette were all influenced by both Scandinavian and Japanese design.

Not only reliant on a beautiful scheme, the space also offers a variety of working oppotunities, more akin of a home or hospitality atmosphere.

The floor itself is split in three separate sections. Entry into an open multifunction gallery and events space leads onto a meeting and lounge area. The final zone, as it were, is the open plan workspace and is more secluded than the other areas.

Furthermore, there are various additions including a private cushioned nook built into one wall, providing an intimate spot inspired by the idea of a Japanese tokonoma.

“The interior architecture is minimalist but thoughtful,” explain the architects, “With attention to every little detail, every single tone, nuance and material in the space has been carefully selected to create a harmonious, precise and natural feel with haptic qualities that we felt were well suited for the Kinfolk credo of slow living.”

Finished with products such as custom oak desks, leather detailed pendant lamps, earthy plaster render and pieces from Scandi favourites such as Menu and Muuto, the space achieves the pared-back aesthetic of Kinfolk itself.

I don’t know about you, but this pretty much sums up everything about my dream workspace.
