The starting point for the marble Hover Bowl was an interest in the idea that there is something inherently fascinating about a heavy object that floats or hovers in the air.
In such a manner, this simple and refined bowl has been designed to trigger just such a fascination. Curved on both sides, the shape gives the bowl a weightless look – almost as if it is floating. A strong contrast is therefore evoked between the heavy marble and Hover Bowl’s expressive light shape.
The versatile bowl can be accommodated in your daily routine for multiple purposes. Use as a soap dish in the kitchen or bathroom, as a candle holder, or to hold personal items such as keys. In the dining room, make it the centrepiece of your table – all the better to admire the beauty inherent in the natural grain of the marble.
A Scandinavian company through and through, Norm Architects are celebrated for their clean, minimalistic designs. Its founders Kasper Rønn and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen argue that minimalism is nothing new: “It has been the norm in many cultures all over the globe since the beginning of civilization. People have strived for material poverty as a way to inner luxury. Reduction and perfection have been the main goal for both craftsmen and inventors – because avoiding the irrelevant meant emphasising the important.”
The pursuit of purity, simplicity and timelessness is at the heart of everything undertaken by Norm.
