Norm Architects has created a collection of simple, minimalist bathroom and home furnishings for Italian manufacturer Ex.t, inspired by Scandinavian design tradition and influenced by the atmosphere of northern landscapes.
In line with soft minimalism, the characteristic style trait of the Danish studio, the collection consists of products that express a spatial sense of calm and rest. Geometric purity, simple naturalness and sober authenticity coexist in a perfect balancing act.
To create Stand, Norm Architects took their inspiration from those lightweight and elegant cast iron details, typical of 1920s and 1930s interiors, that stylistically characterized the Victorian era and the subsequent Art Nouveau and Art Deco decades.
The studio was founded in 2008 and located in Copenhagen, Denmark. They work within the fields of residential architecture, commercial interior design, industrial design, photography and art direction.
The name Norm indicates the importance of drawing inspiration from traditions and norms that have been practiced in architecture aesthetics for centuries. Norm values quality, durability, and timelessness.
The bathtub reinterprets the classic tub with lion-shaped feet, while the washbasin is reminiscent of those planted pots used at the time in the luxuriant, thriving winter gardens.
Stand products are manufactured using the innovative Living Tech® material, whose hi-tech features ensure it fits in perfectly with the elegant black metal structures that give a sense of lightness to the entire collection.
Felt is a modular wall unit which can be used to hang small accessories such as towels, bags and scarves, or it can simply serve as a graphic element. Consisting of a grid-like structure made of painted metal, Felt can be customized with shelves, mirrors in two shapes (round or square) and/or storage modules with or without doors.
