The addition of armrests upgrades the comfort factor of Menu's versatile contoured wood chair Co. Reflected in its name, the oak veneer seating sprang from a collaboration between London's shared-workplace pioneers The Office Group and Norm Architects. Lightweight but demonstrably sturdy, the chair's wide wood back allows for freedom of movement and it is angled for lumbar support. As a dining, office or side chair, Co shows its range with a variety of wood finishes.

From lighting and furniture, tabletop to bath, the wide offerings of Menu speaks to this Copenhagen-based company’s guiding quest for functional originality. “It’s about creating aesthetically pleasing designs that evoke true feelings as well as improving processes in people’s daily lives,” says Menu founder Bjarne Hansen. This is also reflected in its stable of influential creatives including Norm Architects, Afteroom Studio, Jonas Wagell and Krøyer-Sætter-Lassen among others standouts.
Menu is just as dedicated to responsible manufacturing as innovation. Working to locate new partners in developing countries around the world, the company searches out local factories or small private co-operations to turn out high quality goods and also provide a better economic foundation for the people involved in that production.
