Spotted on Dezeen and unveiled at this year's Salone del Mobile in Milan: a new four-piece bath ensemble by  Norm Architects  of Copenhagen, featuring a tub, washbasin, modular wall unit, and pendant light designed through a process of subtraction. The collection was created for Ex.t , a Florence-based home furnishings manufacturer that contracts with family-owned factories throughout Tuscany to produce all of its wares in Italy.   Above: Norm designers Kasper Ronn and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen say they set out to invent a light and airy collection in a field of bathroom designs that "tend to be dominated by visually heavy furnishing elements."  Above: The Felt customizable wall unit is made of matte black metal and can store towels and bath accessories. Customizable features include solid shelves, hanging bars, cubbies with doors, and a circular or square mirror. The piece starts at €318.51 ($359.82) from Ex.t, which ships worldwide. Above: The Stand Washstand was inspired by plant stands from the 1920s and 1930s once used in "luxuriant, thriving winter gardens"; €1,125 ($1,271).  Above: Norm's Stand Bathtub is a reinterpretation of Victorian clawfoot tubs, stripped of "decorative excesses to reach the point where there is nothing more to add or take away in order to make the product better"; €6,440 ($7,275). Above: Wanting a simple light that's both sculptural and nostalgic, the designers created the  Hat , which takes its shape from vintage hat molds. Available in natural oak (shown) and ash with a gray/black finish, it's approximately 7.5 inches wide and 4.5 inches tall; €132 (about $149.12).
