Norn is an experimental design consultancy established by a trio of London based designers working at the intersection of the physical and digital. From a passion for material, colour and composition evolved a multidisciplinary exploration of Design. Application, functionality and personality are explored through progressive thinking, practical making and digital innovation.
Norn places making and the haptic at the heart of its process; exploring the scope of making beyond conventional expectation of hand skills. Textiles act as the foundation to Norn’s Design language, knowledge and ethos. Using this learnt and innate sense of materiality, Norn explores the broader applications of Textiles within design; working across traditional craft skills and technology.
Described as material futurists, Norn explores material properties and undertakes research and development across a broad range of disciplines. With three varied professional careers, the individuals of Norn have accrued expertise in Fashion, Interiors, Historical Textiles, Knowledge Transfer, Material and Product Development. Norn values cohesive and unconventional approaches and welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with other studios in order to pool and grow our knowledge.
