Over centuries, the plinth has been a much mused-over object. With this project Danish studio Norm Architects set out to rethink the uses of the plinth and to reveal the natural beauty of marble. The result is a series of podiums with multiple uses in the home, office or showroom.
Plinth is available three sizes. The low rectangular version is ideal as a monumental coffee table. The cube makes a perfect bedside table or side table. Use the third Plinth in the traditional manner – as a podium on which to display a bust, sculpture, art books, plants or a lamp.
Production Process Inner construction made by solid acacia wood. 1.5 cm thick marble plates are then glued to the sides and top of the inner construction.
Material White Carrara or Black Marquina Marble
H: 39 cm / 15.4"
W: 40 cm / 15.7"
L: 40cm / 15.7"
Norm Architects was founded in 2008 and works in the fields of industrial design, residential architecture, commercial interiors, photography and art direction.
Much like human well-being, the essence of Norm Architects’ work is found in balance—between richness and restraint, between order and complexity. Each project—whether architecture, interiors, design or creative direction—is imbued with the same intrinsic quality: a simplicity that carries bigger ideas. Guided by the body and mind rather than by trends or technology, our projects explore ideas that not only look good but that also feel good: Architecture becomes thoughtful, minimalism acquires softness and visual matter assumes haptic qualities. Their work is sharp and crisp and exudes, tacitly, our focus on quality, details and durability.
