About A Nordic Storm

A Nordic Storm is a Danish interior design brand with a focus on sustainability, innovation, and craftsmanship of the highest quality.

Brand sustainability

A Nordic Storm recognizes the need to increase its environmental consciousness and does what it can to be kinder and gentler to the earth while conserving our natural resources. Instead of adding to the global nuisance that is non-biodegradable waste, the brand has chosen to work with 95% upcycled natural materials, primarily raw stones and crushed marble.

 

Natural stone is an inherently earth-friendly material, with many attributes that lends a long lifecycle to all their products. Natural stone stands up to weathering better than just about any other material, natural or manmade, while also being fully recyclable and non-toxic.

 

The company uses qualified craftsmen in Denmark and the Faroe Islands who handmade every item. No two items are alike, so you get an original piece of handmade art as a result of local-honed craftsmanship and inspiration from nature. Always in favour of recycling and upcycling, they have developed home products that are functional in their expression and function, allowing you to reuse or evolve their products for other further uses.

Brand Ethos

Danish interior design developed with a love for nature – A Nordic Storm brings third-hand to the home, as 95% of the materials they use for their products are natural leftover materials that are getting a new lease on life. With a backpack full of experience and a bricklayer background, founder Stine Sommer Olsen ensures the highest quality of her products in simple unique designs. Her many years as a freelancer have given her the courage to create and reform nature's pure materials, and sustainably turn them into A Nordic Storm – interior home wear that encourages you to live simply but think big.

The Comarché Notes

A Nordic Storm’s homeware merges functional interior with the naturalness of raw crushed marble for a look that feels utterly refreshing. With upcycled leftover materials that never compromise design, A Nordic Storm’s core role is not only to assist you in finding beautiful designs but to also make a responsible difference to the environment. Together we can all make a difference!

Sustainable highlights on brand level

Product Lifecycle

Design

The Design Phase is a crucial part of determining a product’s sustainable capabilities. We’ve chosen to highlight a few genius steps that enable a sustainable product right from the beginning.

    Material & Material Extraction

    The materials used for a certain product and how these materials come to life are of crucial importance to the sustainable capabilities we seek in products.

      Transportation of Materials

      This step relates to the transportation of the raw materials from when they are first obtained (harvested etc.) to the production site. Obviously, the closer to the production site, the better.

        Production

        Obviously, the production of a certain product has an impact on the overall level of sustainability. Luckily, many manufacturers have now taken steps towards more sustainable production methods.

          Packaging

          How a brand chooses to package its products will have a significant influence of the carbon impact from packaging and transportation.

            Distribution

            This step relates to the distribution of products when they have been produced. Obviously, the closer to the brand’s warehouse, the better.

              Usage

              How you choose to use and take care of a product has a bigger impact than you think. Just think about how much longer a shirt lasts if it has been washed in the right way.

                End of life

                At this step, there is no way out and we have to find some way of discarding our product. How we discard a product will significantly influence the opportunity of reusing materials used.
