Nærvær is the Danish word for presence, the concept at heart of this simple table by Norm Architects that invites you to be present. Whether connecting over a conversation or a cosy meal, it’s all about being intimate and in the moment. Ironically, the design of Nærvær is so simple it doesn’t impose its own presence on a space. Pronounced “naer-vaer”, it’s comprised of a powder coated, circular steel base and cylindrical stem supporting a round or square laminate table top. Don’t miss the oak veneer along the table top edges, a discrete detail in a design that could easily fit into a corner or a crowded space. Allowing you to focus on the space and the people who fill it.
