Squids and Seashells For My Faucet

Squids and Seashells For My Faucet

I know this sounds very funny but what can I say… the aQuatica Faucet has been inspired by sea creatures. Honestly, it does resemble a mini sculpture when not in use and expands elaborately to become this work-of-art faucet. A dramatic departure from the drab ones we see off the shelf, but I promise you…the cleaning lady’s not gonna like cleaning this!

One Gee'd Up Blade

One Gee’d Up Blade

This is a revival of the scariest bathroom tool ever created by mankind. The butterfly knife. And in this case, it’s made to be used only on the throat and the face. Not for killing! For shaving. Designer George Christou is very disturbed with the idea that the butterfly knife to the throat for shaving or, as he calls it, the “art of shaving” ritual, is about to be gone forever! So he made a new one!

Yipee It's A Waterfall Sink

Yipee It’s A Waterfall Sink

There are several things that I find unique about the Sink Plate Washbasin Unit and some that I find pretty disturbing. For instance, I simply love the waterfall style faucet that is elegantly fitted onto the top panel. From a distance the entire unit looks to be stylish and exudes glam. But….

Egg Shower

Egg Shower

The proteins in an egg can do wonders for your skin, but how about taking a shower in one? I’m talking about the egg-shaped shaped Cocoon Shower Stall that literally cocoons you once you shut all the glass slides. The usual spa features seen in such kinda stalls are included, but to spell them out: shower, bathtub, hydro massage (Jacuzzi) & mood lighting are there. The rain-showerhead is plum in the center of the ceiling, but I’d much rather use this for the hydra therapies!

Toilet Scribbles

Toilet Scribbles

Where do your best ideas come to you? In the toilet. That’s where everybody’s best ideas arrive, whether they know it or not. So get ready! Get this invention right here! All it is really is a bit of stainless steel tubing 2mm thick, plus a flat. Just stick your roll on there, tear off some sheets, and get to writing! But wait, with what? That’s where you’ve got to add something usually not sitting by the pot: pencils. Pens, markers, even crayons if you like.

Green Shower, No Grime

Green Shower, No Grime

It’s not called “Green” for the amount of green it gets rid of in your shower, but for the niceness it inflicts upon the environment. This “Green Shower” by Rami Tareef takes into account the amount the potential liters and liters of water wasted by showers and fixes it with this design using two very simple modifications.

All In One Loo With A Reason

All In One Loo With A Reason

The Home Core concept integrates the toilet bowl, sink, mirror and a vanity table into one. However, this is not the central theme for this all-in-one-loo. There is a water storage tank right below the sink, where you can choose to store the currently used water or allow it to drain off. (The stored water is meant for flushing the pot) Also, the water pressure from the tap can be moderated to four different levels, giving you the satisfaction of conserving some resource.

Italian Supercar Bathroom

Italian Supercar Bathroom

Two objects, both inspired by the famous car studio Pininfarina. Aerodynamical forms, fast and sporty. These lovelies come in two colors: fresh green (color of a life,) and scarlet (a traditional racing color.) Surfaces similar to racing auto varnish, nice to use, nice to race (if you’re into racing sinks, that is.)

Poop Bucket With A Mission

Poop Bucket With A Mission

We are all well aware of the various sanitation issues that developing countries are facing, the biggest one being poop management. It’s easy for the kids (and in some cases adults) to take to the open fields and roadsides, without realizing the implication of health hazards like disease outbreaks and food contamination. One of the solutions addressing this issue is the Poosh. This is a bucket-mounted toilet for the developing world.

Oh So Sleek Faucets!

Oh So Sleek Faucets!

Faucets are getting trendier and sleeker by the day. The shift in focus is to have a line up that is streamlined and not so obvious. While gilded ivory taps do have their charm, its sometimes the understated ones that really stand out. Trying to fit into this latest trend is the Fluid Faucet Series. The USP seems to be the cohesive design with seamless integration of touchpanels for water temperature control on the body of the faucets. Water pressure and other controls are located at the shower head.

Blue Blue Bidet?

Blue Blue Bidet?

Bluena cleverly combines a WC Bowl and a bidet to become a space saving package. The acrylic bidet part conceals a tap that rotates in multi-directions. The lid of the bowl opens with a click and closes with a soft ’n slow closing mechanism. The seat is made from antibacterial soft rubber and can be replaced easily. Basically it’s a no-fuss minimal styled WC that I think will look cuter in pink and soft gray combo! Maybe then I can call it Pinkena?

The Circle Mirror of Water Life

The Circle Mirror of Water Life

This mirror right here is designed to show you the amount of water you use on the daily, on the monthly, and on the yearly. LED colored lights adorn the rims of this delightful mirror, their colors being set in place by the amount of water that runs through the sink it is attached to. And if you’re feeling like you’d like a big brother mirror function, it can control the amount of water you’re allowed to use!

Put A Brake In Your Shower

Put A Brake In Your Shower

There has been no dearth in designs that harp about water conservation, and adding to the list is the Shower Brake. This one suggests that we kinda allot ourselves a quota, and use that bit only. The water controller sucks in a designated amount of water (when pushed up) that is ideally sufficient for a shower. As the quota depletes, the visual stats of the controller descends at a constant rate, letting you know how much water you used over number of minutes. The time of the shower is directly proportional to the amount of water used.
