Danish designers Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn named their company Norm to express their dedication to “working with Danish norms and standards refined over hundreds of years,” says Bjerre-Poulsen, “rather than rejecting them in the endless search for new.” The sincerity of their approach – bypassing flashy design for good design – shows in the quality of their work. These are products that endure both physically and aesthetically. The Finn Collection (2013) they developed for Design Within Reach is directly tied to their philosophy in that it was built on a passion for details, tactility in design and creating for the need. “Norm products never crave to be anything but what they are,” says Rønn. “That is the combination of utility, purity and quiet beauty.” The teak frames can be oiled to maintain their original color or left alone to develop a beautiful silvery patina. Removable cushions are clad in UV-protected, mildew-resistant Sunbrella fabric to withstand the elements. Seating can be used with or without cushions. Weight capacity: 300 pounds per seating area.

“We make outdoor furniture for the modern lollygagger,” explains Loll founder Greg Benson. “Our furniture is for people who are looking for fresh design that’s made in the U.S.A. with sustainable manufacturing practices. At Loll, we strive to inspire people to appreciate the outdoors both by the way we make our products and how they are intended to be used.” Starting as a side project, Loll was founded in 2006 by a custom skate park manufacturer as a way to repurpose excess ramp material. That original company is gone, but Loll still designs and produces durable all-weather outdoor furniture made from 100% recycled and recyclable plastic, mostly from reclaimed post-consumer milk jugs. Since the company’s founding, its dedication to the environment has kept more than 100 million milk jugs out of landfills. The Lollygagger Collection (2014) is waterproof, fade-resistant and maintenance-free, making it perfect for use indoors and out. Each piece ships flat to save on packing materials; simple assembly required (Allen wrench included). Made in U.S.A. Photo Courtesy of Design Within Reach
Copenhagen-based designer Chris Halstrøm has a special knack for creating things for people she’ll probably never meet yet making them feel as if she knows them somehow. With her Sommer Outdoor Collection (2019), which she designed for DWR, Halstrøm wanted to give people the experience of indoor furniture in outdoor spaces. “I was intrigued by the idea of bringing the look of paper-cord weaving, often found on Danish indoor furniture, to the outdoors, but in a weather-safe material,” she says. “I wanted it to feel natural, and open up that wall between indoors and out.” This duality gives the collection an openness that she says makes it very easy to live with. “I find it interesting to create something that people can read their own stories into, and make it their own. For me, furniture is at its most interesting when you see it being enjoyed by people.” Made in Indonesia. Photo Courtesy of Design Within Reach

When we asked Matthew Hilton to identify the common elements found in his work, he replied, “Functional, stackable, it has to store easily and be a good price.” Fast-forward to today, and he’s still staying true to those ideals. Seeing a need for durable outdoor furniture at accessible prices, Hilton created the Eos Collection (2011), which is lightweight – literally and visually – smartly proportioned and very comfortable. Certain to inspire leisurely outdoor living, this collection was named for Eos, the Greek goddess of dawn and bringer of light. It’s constructed of powder-coated aluminum that stands up to sun and rain. The comfortable sling seat on the Chaise is made of all-weather Textilene®, a mold-, mildew- and UV-resistant material. Two discreet wheels make it easy to follow the sun, or the shade, or a cute lifeguard… Made in China. Photo courtesy of Design Within Reach
