Slide-phone Inspired Faucets

Slide-phone Inspired Faucets

The Reece Slide Tap is a different take on the typical slider phone; it is a faucet that uses the innovation of touch-pads to the fullest. You can turn on the tap by simply sliding the top and control the temperature via the touchpad on the handle. You can preset the temperature, thus eliminating wastage.

Even a Toilet Can Be Cute

Even a Toilet Can Be Cute

Old-school “water-closets” (those toilets with the reservoir mounted on the wall, suspended above the bowl) use gravity to force water into the bowl. While effective, they aren’t around much anymore because of the huge amount of space they require. The satirically-named Element Water Closet  applies entirely different physics to achieve the same amount of flushing power but with less water and while occupying even smaller space than conventional bowl toilets.  See how it works—>

Bath Toys

Bath Toys

BatheXercise is a fun way to de-stress and stay fit at the same time. What these cute guys (kawaii!) are doing is using the BatheXercise equipments to move their muscles and build in that stretch. Hectic schedules and lack of motivation are the top reasons why people skip their exercises. Hopefully with a simple ten-minute routine after a relaxing shower (or before), should do the trick.

For The Sake Of A Clean Shave

For The Sake Of A Clean Shave

One of my earliest memories of my father has been to watch him carefully follow the protocols of his shaving rituals. Needless to say, when my brother was ready to try his hand, my father proudly shared his techniques and even gifted him his shaving mug as if it were a family heirloom. The Obtineo Shave Set strikes a nostalgic cord with me and I sure with guys too. Currently on its last leg for funding, let’s know why this safety razor display shave mug is special.

Power Of P

Power Of P

Apparently the Urea in your pee reacts with the hydrogen ions in water and releases electrons. If we go by this scientific information then there is a possibility of your pee generating electricity. This harnessed energy can be used to power the sensors that trigger flushing of the loo and perhaps the entire lighting set up of the bathroom. I have no validation to this theory but if it can be done, then someone please step on it. Otherwise a lot of pee is just going down the drain for nothing!

NotOnlyWhite Bathroom

NotOnlyWhite Bathroom

If you are looking at re-doing your bathroom then have a look at what Dutch designer Marike Andeweg has conjured up HI-MACS. The versatile material has been used the basin as well as fixtures, aptly titled the Air, Box and Light. Sporting gentle, fluid geometrical forms, the Box consists of a sophisticated single or double HI-MACS oval basin, accompanied by the practical and orderly counter containers in oak wood.

Room Division Done Right

Room Division Done Right

As urban living faces space challenges, this design team has a good solution to make most of the limited carpet area that your home may have. Cook&Bath is a clever construction and room division that allows you to make the most of the space restrictions. In a way, it eliminates an entire wall and uses a centralized bathroom-shower space as the room division. An interesting way to demark the kitchen, living and bedroom space!

Futuristic Faucet

Futuristic Faucet

Clean, modern, and simple, the Duo faucet strikes a balance between functionality and style with its interactive appeal and smart shape. The design forms a half-ring over the sink, allowing the water to flow in a circular fashion to the center or sides depending on the desired temperature. Built-in red and blue LED lights indicate the temperature, changing as the user moves the sliding rings to adjust the temp. 

Refined Ripples

Refined Ripples

The Extraction Quattro washbasin achieves its elegant form by being  cut and turned from a single piece of ripple-shaped stone. The resulting piece mimics the ripple in a smooth, curvilinear and geometric bathroom centerpiece. A perfect compliment to the basin, the extra cut-out material from the original stone makes for a great wall ornament. At a glance, the basin appears to have fallen directly from the wall and onto the surface of the counter!

Safer Bathtubs Are So Good!

Safer Bathtubs Are So Good!

Mat lined or not, the danger of slipping in bathtubs still remains the prime reason for bathroom accidents. One of the innovative ways thought out by designer Andras Suto is to apply a translucent elastic material on the edges of the bathtub. Thanks to the soft, plastic material the neck and the arms can comfortably rest on the edge of the Blando bathtub. A simple redesign where surfaces that have most contact with the human body has been changed, and this seems to be a good solution.

The Bathing Sphere

The Bathing Sphere

While the lines between the bathing space and the bedroom are getting blurry by the day, its great to see how designers are modifying their approach towards the task of daily ablutions. We have here the Bathsphere, which is a glass-bubble kinda suspended sphere. It allows you to create your own mood and unwinding space. You can simulate rain; change the temperature inside the ball, humidity, light, sounds and even smells. Pretty awesome!
