MINIMAL BATHROOMS

I would like to share with you some bathroom images that simply struck me – in a very pleasant way.  You might wonder why I keep returning to the subject of minimal bathrooms.  The critique of minimalism is that it is too serene, too sterile, not “real life”.  I agree in the sense that the images below are styled, and lack the human touch as well as the human body.  What is missing are those toothbrushes, half-empty toothpaste tubes, shampoo and shower gel in unsightly bottle , messy towels, razors… do I need to go on?   I argue that minimal bathrooms work for precisely this reason: they do not by themselves add to the clutter.  They create a vary subtle yet beautiful backdrop for the daily life objects and for the human body.  With this in mind lets indulge in the beauty of the following photographs.
