Imagine pulling up a chair to the most beautiful meal of your life. The plates offer surprise after surprise, packed with the kind of fairy-tale treats dreamed up by some of the most talented chefs in the world. Now, imagine that you could pull up that chair to your very own kitchen table. You could eat off those very same plates! What kind of perverse pleasure would you glean from noshing burnt toast and scrambled eggs off the same service that was once plated by Chef Rene Redzepi?
If you’ve already enjoyed a meal at noma, once considered the best restaurant in the world and the touchstone for the New Nordic movement across Scandinavia, perhaps you’d like a little (or not so little) memento. If you never got to eat there (like most people in the world), you can finally have your own make-believe tea party. Now’s your chance!
On 2nd November 2017, Wright auction house in Chicago, IL, will be auctioning off furniture, ceramics and other interior goods from the famous restaurant, which closed earlier this year.
Items like tables from Space Copenhagen and chairs from Niels O. Møller are estimated to sell from 2,000 USD to 15,000 USD, while Aage and Kasper Würtz ceramics start around 150 USD. Like a meal at Noma, these pieces don’t come cheap.
The updated Noma will open in 2018, with reservations going live on 16 November. Until then, remember it fondly with a taxidermy pheasant of your very own.
