Beyond a Blowdryer

Beyond a Blowdryer

Chances are the words “communal blowdryer” spark some less than desirable mental images from your last visit a hotel bathroom. Not cute! The OBLOW dryer solves many of the functional and aesthetic issues of current models with a cordless, minimal, wall-mounted, easy-to-clean design. That’s easy enough… but the heart of the system is its digital interface that allows users to play music, schedule a taxi, check flights, locate points of interest and anything else a traveler needs!

Sexy Hollywood Bath

Sexy Hollywood Bath

How about a sexy soak in a tub that has all the glitz and glam of Hollywood? The Xiuxi Bathtub has air injection device at the bottom that puts forth bubble bursts of water and friction that causes the anion to open pores of the skin cells. There is infrared light to stimulate cell tissues and enhance blood circulation. In short it’s a spa bath and treatment at home, at the fraction of the cost.

Best of Bathroom Concepts in 2013

When you got you go…you got to go! But after you’re done and take stock of your environment, then it really sinks in, are you using a classy bathroom or is it just another crappy (pun intended) place to relive yourself? Truth is, we all love innovations in the bathroom space, be it a tushy-warming toilet seat or a high-tech bath. 2013 saw some radicle trends that addressed the space crunch by merging the living and bathing space, as well as elegance in designing techniques.

If Only Costner Made WaterWall…

If Only Costner Made WaterWall…

… the result would have been a new ecological water heater for the bathroom! Apparently this wall integrated water storage has a coating on the glass surfaces to help absorb solar energy. This of course means that the water sandwiched between the glass panes will also get heated. Moreover the translucent glass allows natural sunlight to stream into the bathroom. So nice!

Hot and Cold Waterfall

Hot and Cold Waterfall

We never get a chance to see how the hot and cold water blend together within the faucet, before it cascades out like a stream. The Pavati Tap builds upon this element, to showcase how beautifully the two streams of water can create drama whilst you wash your hands. A Y-shaped waterfall effect mixes the cold and hot water into a single mutual waterfall, for your viewing pleasure. Sweet!

The Men’s Only Toothbrush

The Men’s Only Toothbrush

The goal for designing the Braun Concept Electric Toothbrush was to clearly define and create a toothbrush that is targeted at men. Unisex designs in toothbrushes often tend to appeal to only one gender, so the task at hand was to see if a design could be created that identifies only with one gender. A look at this concept and it is clear that it’s a sexy men’s-only electric toothbrush! Mission accomplished!
