Steering away from the predictable grinder, the Norm ‘Bottle Grinders’ are not what you expect to see in a salt and pepper grinder.
The form, shaped more like a bottle, cleverly tricks the user to encourage a more playful and experimental interaction with the product. The powerful ceramic mechanism makes the grinder easy to operate and perfect for trying out more than just salt and pepper including spices and grains, nuts, seeds or dried fruits.
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.
