Triple Dose Basin

Triple Dose Basin

The Swing + is a wash basin and utility unit that encloses a drawer and what looks to be a secondary shallow basin. The idea is to make a modular unit that befits compact living spaces. The prototype scale model looks convincing, but I’m not a great fan of pivoting integrated toilets! Give me a luxurious Waterfall Sink any day!

Shiny Toothbrush Holders

Shiny Toothbrush Holders

Shame on you for not thinking about your toothbrush! It needs the perfect glam house for the 23 hours and 55 minutes that it spends alone…assuming you brush for 5 minutes straight. Something like the luxe Viktor Toothbrush Holders that are shiny and totally oomph, a strong departure from the plastic and ceramic ones I grew up with!

Sinking Tub! Really!

Sinking Tub! Really!

Expect your bath to sink or spill or whatever it is that comes to your mind! The idea behind the Shore Tub is to give you a complete spa experience, with massages and jets of water giving you the complete service. What makes the tub different from the herd is its unique elevation system. One end of it simply spills onto the floor so that people with restrictive movements need not “climb out”, but walk out of it. I’m sure it will help in avoiding nasty slips and falls! Plus the workings look do-able as well.

Transparent & Sexy Shower Comes Minus The Girl!

Transparent & Sexy Shower Comes Minus The Girl!

There is something sexy about combining electrical appliances with a transparent body and using nano-electrical technology. The transparent B-IRON 725, the Lupe Hand Washing System, and now this: The Dew Drop Gel Shower System. Fashioned to resemble a long transparent leaf with contrasting red heating lines running all over, it oozes with luxe looks! The shower incorporates the water heater and all controls in a very sophisticated, digital way…making you wish this wasn’t a concept, but an inviting hot shower in your home!

Oral Care Superfashion!

Oral Care Superfashion!

Ever since I can remember having been conscious of my teeth, I’ve gone to the dentist. When I went there as a child, I would get a “free” toothbrush, floss, and a prize! I’d usually get a bouncy ball or a pencil. As I got older, the prizes went away, but the toothbrushes kept coming. And there wasn’t much choice. A few brushes to be decided between, and that was that. Why would I go out and buy one if I got one here for free? But wait, I said one day a couple years ago; what if there were cooler brushes at the store? Guess what; there weren’t. Enter the brand Yumaki, it’s a brand new world for me, my mouth, and my fashion pallet.

Men & Women – We Pee Together

Men & Women – We Pee Together

There was this scene in the movie History of the World where Mel Brooks plays the Piss Boy and the royalty pay him the fee for his “bucket service” by dropping his tip into the bucket! Funny scene; but the truth is women can’t pee in the same bucket or urinal! Not unless everyone is peeing in the “We P Unisex Urinal”. The design is self-explanatory, so I’m leaving you boys for a loo-break! Too much of P talk here!

A Quantitative Tap

A Quantitative Tap

How awesome would it be to have a faucet that pre-measures the amount of water you’d like to come out of it before it comes out of it? Designer Jasper Hou is making that fantasy of cooking pleasure a reality with “No More No Less,” a quantitative tap with pre-control. N.M.N.L. does this with a simple countdown, knowing how much water comes out of the tap on full blast times the amount of time it comes out equals the amount you’ll get. Then there’s an LCD screen for control, temperature, and a 30 second on time.

Union Jack Tap And More Creative Ideas

Union Jack Tap And More Creative Ideas

It’s quite unusual to think of faucets as creative elements, high-end designer goodies – yes, but not creative! Well the Joint Jack Tap Concept breaks that myth with its fun outlook and creativity. Basically it’s just three elements (tap, hot and cold mixers) mounted on spherical joints, allowing you to rotate them in many different ways. “It looks like a group of figures in ancient Russian folk sport “Gorodki” or anti-tank obstacle or British flag (Union Jack) in some positions!” Union Jack is quite amusing…don’t you think?

The Obedient Nodding Faucet

The Obedient Nodding Faucet

Nodding to your command and obediently spraying out water, this is the Nodding Faucet for you. The idea is to push down the tap to start the flow and push it up, to stop. No-fuss, minimal, sleek and bare…all resonate in this design. I know some of you may argue that sensor taps will be better, since no touching is involved…for once, just lighten up and take pleasure in something different and cute!

Squares and Circles

Squares and Circles

You’re in your bathroom, and you’re looking all around. You see all sorts of blah. Especially if you’ve just moved in and that last people who lived there were from the 1980s. You know what I mean? Let’s get to work, let’s get it done gorgeously with Cube&Dot. It’s a matching ceramic, washbasin and bathroom cabinets. One giant system of excellent circles and squares and angle lines.

Seesaw For Public Toilets

Seesaw For Public Toilets

If it’s an eco conscious faucet with fun elements and a universal appeal that you’re looking for, I’ve got one for you right here. It’s called the Seesaw and it works on the same lines as the playground namesake. The up down action dispenses water from the left and soap from the right side. The eco factor kicks in with the notion that you’ll use only limited water, after dispensing the soap, and not while you pump some from a bottle. And as Chanhee points out, it should do well in public toilets.

Whoa! Men To Pee and Wash In The Same Stand!

Whoa! Men To Pee and Wash In The Same Stand!

I’m not a man so I really don’t know how comfortable you guys are going to be with this thought…peeing and washing hands in the same urinal stand! What Designer Yeongwoo Kim has done is incorporated the wash basin just above the spot you take aim to pee. The reason cited is that you’ll save a water flush cycle, coz when you rinse your hand after the job (I hope you guys do that!), the same gray water can be used to cleanse the urinal basin. Tell me, how many of you guys will be comfortable with this? For once, my opinion doesn’t count, but I do find it funny!

Dog, Luggage And You On The Same Scale

Dog, Luggage And You On The Same Scale

The truth of the matter is that weighing dogs & luggage on a domestic weigh machine is cumbersome to the point of being impractical. So what’s the solution? How about a sleek scale that expands its base to accommodate anything from a small sized pug, to humans, to great danes & huge suitcases. Say hello to your bathroom friendly Scale Z! Besides its stunning physical attributes, this baby is capable of recognizing your feet (not from their stink!) and pull out your past records like weight, BMI etc, record the new readings and send it to your computer via Wi-Fi.
