Normal is a contemporary rendition of the classic worktable: pure measurements, balanced proportions and materials that appeal to the senses. Normal consists of a wide top and two chests of drawers. These veneered segments are affixed to each other by way of a steel element. Following in the Bauhaus tradition, the assembly system of the furniture is kept deliberately visible. As is true with Nouvel’s architecture itself, the formal language of Normal is based on notions such as “open and closed”, surface and volume. The monumental desk, the meeting table and the filing cabinets that complete this collection radiate a feeling for modern luxury and warm elegance.
