(Ph. courtesy MENU)Warm and welcoming minimalism is the stock and trade of Danish design firm MENU, whose autumn-winter offerings were named best new collection at this year's NY NOW gift fair. Says founder Bjarne Hansen, "It's about creating aesthetically pleasing designs that evoke true feelings, as well as improve processes in people's daily lives." Running the gamut from tabletop to bath fixtures and from ceramics to metallics, the brand is a veritable master class in the beauty of pared-down living.
