Windscreen Wiper Mirror

Windscreen Wiper Mirror

I’m all for the simplest ideas to solve some common problems. Instead of using some toxic glass cleaner to prevent shower steam, why not attach a discarded windshield wiper? It’s not the most elegant solution unless you live in a modern industrial loft. Oh wait! A lot of people live in those and love it too!

Hamper is the Washing Machine

Hamper is the Washing Machine

I fail at managing laundry. I have way too many clothes. When I am ready to wash, it’s an all day affair dragging heavy baskets to and from the washer/dryer. I’m not saying I’m too busy or lazy. I just want a simpler solution and I think designer Guopeng Liang is on to something with his iBasket concept.

I Want a Bath, Spa, and Jacuzzi but Got No Space

I Want a Bath, Spa, and Jacuzzi but Got No Space

I’m not going to poo-poo my apartment because I actually have a nice bathroom but am no where near sporting a bath, spa, and jacuzzi all in one unit. Have you seen the size of those tubs? They’re HUGE. Designer Dominik Chojnacki must understand my pain because his SPAcer is a movable Spa bath that can fold up against the wall to save floor space. Nevermind that it looks like an Orca turned upside down, Dominik claims the shape was inspired by two rain drops.

Feeling hot hot hot

Feeling hot hot hot

We all remember that little home invader/burglar Goldilocks and her serious issues with gauging temperature. “Too hot, too cold….” blah blah blah, shut it you delinquent! Designer Kai Chen has invented a little what’s hot/what’s not meter that takes all the guess work out of getting into your bathtub.

Weight scale with a spin

Weight scale with a spin

Oh the dread of standing on your bathroom’s weight scale. That anxiety you feel as you step onto a device that most of the time delivers only disappointing news. Well get over the fact that you have been a little self indulgent lately and probably should have avoided having that daily Starbuck’s coffee milkshake with luscious whip cream, rich chocolate shavings and smooth chocolate syrup drizzled over crunchy toffee crumbles.

Where's The Hole?

Where’s The Hole?

Do sinks really need a paradigm shift in design? Designer Maja Ganszyniec seems to think so. Check out this Plugless Sink. From the name you should be able to figure out what’s different about it. There’s a reason behind this altruistic design though. Since you have to manually pour the water out into a spillway, you’re consciously aware of how much water you’re using. Great, I’m a total water hog so this sink would definitely make me think twice about leaving the faucet running.

No Excuse This Time

No Excuse This Time

An apple a day does not keep the dentist away. Trust me, I’ve tried and my dentist always finds room to tell me to brush more often. I swear I brush twice a day! Technically you should brush after you eat anything but I’m not walking around with a toothbrush. The Any Brush is all about portable brushing in a convenient disposable package.

Some Real Gift Soap

Some Real Gift Soap

Gift soaps are nice but their beauty and smell degrades with use which leads to most people never using them, to try and preserve the gift. What if Gift Soap really did contain a gift? Like a box of cracker jacks, use the soap to reach the special object in the middle. Clever.

Tiles to make you Smile

Tiles to make you Smile

Tiles have been a common medium for expression for thousands of years. From Picasso’s baboon tile that I had the privilege to briefly posses to roman mosaics, tile art is wonderful way to express your unwavering and permanent devotion to the visual arts. Pun Collection Tiles by Stefano Pirovano for Ascot Ceramiche is a new/old way to commit to any message you want to get across.

iWash My Face

iWash My Face

Ah sleep…my drug of choice. What sucks worse than not sleeping enough? Having to wake up from a nice, cozy, toe curling slumber. To arouse ourselves from our hibernating, most of us have devised some pretty unique ways of getting our collective asses out of bed. One of the most common rituals is to crank on some upbeat tunes and splash water in our crusty faces.

Get wet with style

Get wet with style

So as I was gazing longingly at this bathtub design called “Sorgente” by Lenci Design for Teuco, I realized that I was schooled on the difference between a bathtub and a hot tub. A bathtub is obviously for bathing, and a hot tub is obviously for more recreational use and relaxing.

Universal Scale Makes Weighing Easier

Universal Scale Makes Weighing Easier

It may not be something we often think about but scales aren’t exactly universally friendly – that is to say people with disabilities and handicaps. The Universal scale unfolds to all shapes and sizes to make weighing easier and less intrusive and helps patients retain a bit more dignity. A huge improvement over the slings hospitals currently use.
