Spotted while perusing the wares at Analogue Life (one of our favorite purveyors of household goods): simple bath hardware as an art form, from Chiba Metal Works in Japan. “Designed with smooth, straight lines and no adornment, these simple pieces will develop a natural patina over time to create an uneven tone that adds to the industrial character,” according to Analogue Life. Here are some favorites from the line:
