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.

Faucet Makes You Work For Water

Faucet Makes You Work For Water

You’re a water waster so designer Harvey Bewley devised a faucet called the Twist to makes you work for it. The tap is controlled by an aerator. To get water flowing you have to “twist” and crank it. Anytime people have to apply a little elbow grease to accomplish a task – they may think twice. That’s the whole point. Only use water when you REALLY need it. If that doesn’t destroy you water world dreams, there’s even a digital read-out. My favorite bit is the motion sensor that gives you just splash because sometimes that’s all you need.

Double Crossing Tap

Double Crossing Tap

I wonder why no one thought of this before; what the Cycle-Basin is proposing here is very simple. Depending upon what you use the tap water for, you decide whether the gray water can be recycled or not, and then accordingly use the bottom tap to drain out the water into a bucket or let it go down the drain…literally. If you’re cleaning up some veggies, then naturally you can recycle that water for watering your plants. Get the drift?

Another Hygiene Standard Flow

Another Hygiene Standard Flow

From Docta Ecological Consciousness. What! What! Representing the flexible bathroom environment. Word up. Really though, look at this bathroom. It’s called “Another Bathroom” and it’s designed by Felipe Ribon. It’s just fabulous. The questions it asks are how we could keep high hygiene standards in a flexible bathroom environment, and ALSO enjoy it with ecological consciousness? Harsh limits!

Classy Water Stopper

Classy Water Stopper

When I first spied the WaterStoppingWater, it felt like déjà vu, simply because it has this uncanny resemblance to the DROPPA carafe by Ozgur Onal. Now I’m not going to get in to the bickering of who inspires who; the bottom line is that WaterStoppingWater has a very fluid design and represents a sink stopper in a very chic way.

How Many Boxes Does A Bathroom Make?

How Many Boxes Does A Bathroom Make?

Plenty if you want the Roca Box. Segmented sanitary spaces, all come together like the accordion; compact in the box! For a good measure, a concept known as the “Thermal Bomb” has been thrown in. Thermal Bomb essentially uses humid air to heat the water and is supposedly energy efficient as well. Would you like to bathe in the box, or do you need conventional spacious grandeur?

Super Sexy Bathroom

Super Sexy Bathroom

It’s always about the future, and in the future you guys are going to realize the need of doubling up your interior spaces by adding more than one function to a room. Like, you may want your bathroom to double up as a gym when you’re not taking a bath. So how about you get the Roca Active & Relax Bathroom? It’s this luxurious room where the sunken bath is really sunken, invisible till you don’t open up the floorboards. No windows too, instead 3 floor-to-ceiling LCDs giving you the illusion of a panoramic view.

Star In Your Own 3 D Shower Movie

Star In Your Own 3 D Shower Movie

The Waterdrop Shower Room brings to life the childhood fantasies of role-playing while taking a bath. Sometimes you’re a beastly pirate and sometimes a brave hero rescuing your ducks. This exciting enclosure comes with a tactile touchscreen that almost envelopes you. Its giant screen happily plays for you soothing melodies of the Chinese Opera to Nemo (although I reckon the big guys will opt for something more seductive!) and transports you to fantasy land!

Mirror Mirror On The Wall

Mirror Mirror On The Wall

The new Aluminum Series Mirror by Sonia eliminates the need for a separate magnifying mirror. A magnet is placed on a pendulum behind the plate glass mirror. This magnet attracts the magnet, which is concealed into the mini Magnifying Mirror, allowing users to slide the small mirror anywhere on the large mirror. When not in use, it can be pulled off the surface and stored away.

Enjoy the Arc

Enjoy the Arc

The beautiful Arc is a shower system that transcends from the normal “shower mode” to the “energy-saving mode”, effortlessly. In the eco avatar, it recycles the warm shower water on the spot so that you feel less guilty for indulging in a hot-luxury-rinse. What I don’t get is the hue and cry people make over wasting water in the shower, when we have film-makers squander precious liters in a parched city just to shoot a Tsunami scene, now that’s criminal wastage!
