A Decluttering Dream Come True

    What’s wrong with plastic or ceramic holders? That thing could be one dangerous projectile.!

    this looks like something that should be a part of a series of products. looks incomplete on its own.

    Dear Designer,
    Firstly, “designstudent” is absolutely right. Manufacturing each piece from a metal block isn’t the most feasible way to go. If you want a feel of something machined, design the texture in your die/mould. This is a very illogical approach for two reasons. Firstly, the product’s purpose. This is undoubtedly an item of luxury. Only people with curated tastes will go for this. With such a niche market, you’d need to cater to a small demand. Whereas CNC machining is a good option for catering to low demand, it’s also time and resource intensive. Your end product will take hours to make, there will be loads of material wasted in the form of shavings and burrs. Also, this will require some sort of treatment post machining, to remove sharp edges, and also ensure it isn’t susceptible to rust. That’s a lot of work for a product of this nature. Not to mention what I personally find the most nagging is its “Solo” nature. This product, after all the effort put behind it, holds just one razor or tooth-brush. That just seems like a shame. Having such a MASSIVE carbon-footprint for something this miniscule. Not worth the effort, I’m afraid.

    You can check Muji: http://www.muji.eu/pages/online.asp?Sec=17&Sub=72&PID=6639

    Similar concept but made of porcelain.

    There you go, Chris. The Muji product costs $2, and the SOLO costs $25. I mentioned the niche market, didn’t I?

    I used HUMN product http://goo.gl/bhJrqS which is similar idea with SOLO. In my option is better cause they have extra ”water absorption of ceramic pad”.
