When a recognizable form gets an original twist, the product seems more fun to use.
A well-conceived design whose thoughtful simplicity has made it a favourite in spaces both public and private, the MENU Pedal Bin is an essential part of the aesthetically and functionally unified MENU Bath Series. The bin ties into the collection’s common visual thread of clean lines and rounded edges: a quintessential expression of Norm Architect’s ability to bring softness to modern minimalism.
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.
