NORM Floor Mirror
In the spirit of Scandinavian simplicity, the two Danes behind NORM, Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn, always strive to cut to the bone. To find the simplest possible solution without forgetting the beauty of the shape or the details – all in order to reach a point where nothing added nor subtracted will make the product better.
In our opinion, this is what set NORM aside from other talented designers. And when we look at Norm Floor Mirror, we think they stopped at the exact right point. A beautiful piece of design with simple aesthetics, powerful looks and fine details. Designed to lean against the wall – or to go, stand or hang wherever you find it best.

Minimalism is not a modern style. Minimalism has been the norm in many cultures all over the globe since the beginning of civilization. People have strived continually 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.
All too often people think of design in terms of added grandness. But it is often the plain or the reduced that is the most striking.
In our work we aim for geometrical purity, a simple naturalness and a reduced authenticity for a sense of calm and repose. We want to arrive at the maximum of expressivity with the minimum of expression. In an era dripping with images, forms and sound, to reduce ends up being the most eloquent gesture.
We try to balance the visual, the tactile and the sensual to create an unusual but harmonious experience. We bridge the masculine and the feminine with an obsessive attention to detail. And we aim at creating functional objects that do not only meet the need, but also provide joy. We call it soft minimalism.
We strive for timelessness in our work. Tendencies come and go. Products should not only be durable because they are made from good materials. They should also be aesthetically durable in the sense that you can keep on looking at them and continue to find them interesting.
