In 2011 Danish design company Menu launched the New Norm Dinnerware collection, designed by Norm Architects. It was original and had a very unique Nordic feel to it. It soon became clear the collection deserved an equally unique platform from which to be showcased. The two companies joined forces with renowned Copenhagen restaurateurs Cofoco; a partnership that resulted in a little piece of restaurant magic called Höst.
The design restaurant Höst expresses everything that could be categorised as “Nordic”, and is the exquisite result of clashes: romantic yet modern, urban yet rural and rustic yet simplistic. It holds a very special place in people’s hearts because of its multiple stories, mixed inspirations and materials.
At Höst the classic virtues of Nordic cooking finds its contemporary counterpart. And in the kitchen traditional ingredients are combined with the visions characterising the New Nordic Cuisine, resulting in something aesthetically pleasing for all senses.
In September 2013 Höst won “The World’s Best Design Restaurant” award at the annual Bar & Restaurant Design Awards in London. It was the first time ever a Danish restaurant received the award.
Höst is designed to match the unique Nordic ways and continues to inspire visitors from all over the world, over and over again.
