A mystifying mist-ifying shower head!


Do you remember the old-timey Windows screensaver called 3D pipes? Imagine turning that incredibly hypnotic graphic into an actual product. That’s the 3D Shower by Duratex for you. This rather “different” looking shower head uses asymmetrically arranged geometric wefts to create a shower head that’s functional, but unique to look at. Designed to look like nothing you’ve ever seen before, the shower head has a modern avatar and tends to leave one curiously observing and plotting the flow of water from its curvy, pipe-esque design. Nothing about the 3D Shower is traditional. Not even its manufacturing technique. Made using 3D printing, the shower head uses thermoplastic resin, giving its quirky shape a different color, material, and finish. All in all, a very memorable product!

The 3D Shower is a winner of the iF Gold Award for the year 2018.

Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall, this is the Most Bada$$ One of All


Admittedly, when I first saw this, I thought, a beauty mirror with a speaker – that’s kind of interesting. Turns out, it’s so much more than that! This futuristic design is actually equipped with an array of sensors that detect your face’s unique skin condition and then dispenses the appropriate eye cream, moisturizer, toner, sunscreen or other topical solution you need to maintain healthy skin! Better yet, the smart design connects wirelessly to the internet to stay abreast of the weather and time of day and makes calculations accordingly to ensure you’re protected whether it’s sunny, dry or humid outside. Of course, it will also play your favorite tunes too. GENIUS!

Take the Guesswork Out of Saving Water


It’s easy to lose track of time when you’re enjoying a hot shower but that also means precious water goes down the drain, literally and figuratively. The Drop water tap takes the guesswork out of saving water. To help you stay aware of your time in the shower and your own personal consumption by using a representation of time that’s familiar to most people: sand!

Simply turn the hourglass on the device and set your desired temperature. While it won’t shut the water off on you, it does provide a visual reminder to help heighten awareness. Drop also syncs wirelessly with an app on your phone that displays your overall consumption with easy-to-understand graphics and recommendations for improving your water usage.

The Hip-to-be-Square Hair Dryer


Inspired by the world renowned street style brand Off-White, the HIFIVE hair dryer is a fashion-forward take on a common appliance. Users will find the same signature Off-White diagonal line pattern and an overall shape that’s more squarish and technical than traditionally round units.

It’s something entirely new, however, it maintains a cylindrical handle and half-nozzle for familiarity and ergonomics. Unlike other entirely round units, its top section sports a completely flat surface on which it rests. It’s a simple stabilizing solution that should have been adopted by other designs a long time ago to keep dryers from wobbling around! With a folding handle and compact collapsed form, it’s also easy to store or carry in a suitcase.

Designers: Joongho Choi & Hyunmook Lim

Bathroom Bliss for Your OCD

I thought this looked familiar and it’s because this shower caddy has been front in center at Bed Bath & Beyond’s bathroom section since 2015! (I was just there using those ubiquitous 20% coupons!)

‘Breaking the mold’ of soap design

Never did I think that I’d one day write about soap design, but you have to marvel the fact that someone spotted the problem all of humanity struggled with, but didn’t bother solving. The slippery soap.

Soaps are probably too organic shaped for their good. Anyone who’s even used something as non-slippery as a phone can say that the bar shape isn’t hand-friendly. Candybar shaped stuff have an inherent tendency to slip out of your grip, so the Tetra Soap is everything but that. Designed to be as grippy and ergonomic as possible, the soap comes in the shape of a wave-breaker, giving you a great amount of surface area to work up a lather, while making sure the soap is easy to hold onto even (especially) when wet. The shape even comes with ‘legs’ that let you rest the soap on a soapdish naturally. What’s more, the wave-breaker shape allows the soap to remain ergonomic even as it erodes away, letting it be easy to hold and useful until the very last day. Plus is it just me, or does the eroded form of the soap look just as eye-catching as its original shape??

The Cleanest Design for Clean Teeth

The year 2018, we thought there would be flying cars, self-tightening shoes and so much more, yet we have an abundance of smart speakers and biometric data for every smart device. The latest product to go smart which may or may not need it is Colgate, with their Colgate Connect E1. Exclusively available only at Apple stores, this smart and sleek toothbrush is actually pretty cool.

This toothbrush certainly packs a punch, going ten days on a single charge, with a small rounded head to reach those hard to get corners of the mouth. It also has artificial intelligence embedded in the handle and automatic data uploading via Bluetooth wireless technology for a seamless pairing process. All this inside a pretty slim handle seems like a no-brainer honestly. As if that wasn’t enough, this little guy comes with an app that helps you map your mouth when brushing to ensure better brushing habits and how to get the best out of what you brush. Oh, and it also comes with games because who doesn’t like games right?
