MENU is a Danish design company founded in 1976. We do design. All day actually. Occasionally at night as well. Collaborating with some of the most talented designers in the world we deliver high quality design with a crisp Scandinavian look. We call it soft minimalism.
At Menu we’re passionate about design, new materials and clever details, and we dream about making a difference.
So we believe in making design matter – and we strives to do so by creating products that evoke true feelings, innovations that make a genuine difference, and by combining do-well with do-good. We’re passionate, original and responsible.
