A Nostalgic Bath Collection from a Copenhagen Design Firm

January 6, 2017

Recently spotted: a luxuriously shapely bath collection from Copenhagen-based designers Norm Architects. If it feels a little nostalgic, that’s intentional: Norm’s calling card is taking a familiar shape (a hat mold, a vintage planter, a wooden milking stool) and paring it down to its simplest form to create something “striking, functional, and aesthetically durable.” The inspiration behind the new collection? Antique roll-top baths. Here’s a look.

Above: Created for Spanish company Inbani, the Prime collection includes three sinks and two bathtubs. One oblong sink (shown) can be wall-mounted.

Above: The collection is made of a matte composite material. The voluptuous, full shapes evoke “how the pressure of water shapes an elastic material, like a filled water balloon.” This round washbasin can be top-mounted or under-mounted.

Above: Like the washbasins, the Prime baths have a “soft outer shape.” The first bath silhouette is of uniform height on all sides.
