THE IDEA BEHIND WARM NORDIC
Frantz Longhi, the founder of Warm Nordic, has for many years collected antique Scandinavian designs.
The antique designs were used to furnish his Kähler Design restaurants in Aarhus. Here, many guests showed great interest in the classic designs that were no longer in production.
When Frantz discovered that others saw the beauty and quality of the classic furniture, he could not bear the thought that iconic chairs by Hans Olsen and Knud Færch would only live out their lives at international auctions.
And so an idea began to take shape for Frantz, who then contacted the designers' descendants.
In close collaboration with the designers' families, Warm Nordic today takes care of the design heritage and brings the classic designs into the present.
"Warm Nordic pays tribute to the great Scandinavian furniture architects and designers, who appear at international auctions. We lift classic design into the present, combine them with new, curated designs and refine the quality, the warm atmosphere of colors and shapes that express the Nordic design heritage.”
