Place the Cubessence bottles on top of each other and they stack almost seamlessly. The trick is in the design of the bottle, that comes with an angular base, but a regular skirt around it. The bottle’s bases are placed at an angle to avoid the neck of the bottle below, but that doesn’t mean they sit at an angle when you place them on their own, because the side walls still extend downwards in a regular fashion. This allows each bottle to individually look slightly unique, but look beautiful together, as they vertically align, forming a totem-pole of sorts. This makes the Cubessence bottles both efficient to pack, as well as interesting to look at! A third benefit lies within this design too. The angled base reduces wastage. By making sure that one corner of the base is lower than the others, Cubessence makes sure the pipe within the bottle sits at this lowest corner, pumping out every ounce of the liquid to make sure the bottle is completely empty before you decide to dispose of it!
We put so much thought and consideration into our homes interior design, that it’s just not acceptable for it to be aesthetically compromised by the unsightly appearance of an abandoned hairdryer and the abundance of cable that comes with it. The Fondre Hairdryer addresses this issue, whilst also bringing with it an additional layer of functionality. Storing hairdryers isn’t always an easy task, their awkward form doesn’t make them a draw-friendly device, so why not allow their form to harmoniously compliment the exciting décor of the room.
The wireless design can be used both when it is docked on its base or when it’s held in the user’s hand. I bet your hairdryer can’t do that! There is no denying that the aesthetics have been considered in great depth; from the beautifully simplistic form down to the carefully considered CMF elements. It certainly makes for one desirable hairdryer!
It isn’t No-shave November yet, so how about you groom that rough mane a little! Kong Dezheng’s Multifunctional Convenient Shaver is a one-piece, two-part product that lets you take control of frizzy, unkempt facial hair.
The pen-shaped device slides right into your pocket, allowing you to carry it around with you wherever you go. When needed, the pen packs a pair of grooming scissors at one end, and a folding razor at the other, giving you the ability to groom yourself on the go. Quite nifty if you ask me!
If you’ve ever bought a toothbrush because “9-out-of-10 dentists recommend it”, raise your hand. Here’s something those phony adverts never tell you: toothbrushes are only as good as the users. The toothbrush’s grip, or bristle softness, or zig-zag pattern isn’t the problem. It’s the way we use our toothbrush, which is the problem. All toothbrushes can be effective when used as intended, but no matter how advanced they are designed to help you change your behavior, most people just don’t brush their teeth correctly. In fact, research shows only 1 in 10 American adults get it right.
Ryan Schwartz, son of renowned dentist Cary Schwartz, DDS, realized there was a real need for a toothbrush that can ensure a proper cleaning effortlessly, and in a fraction of the time. The Encompass, unlike every other toothbrush, is designed around the fact that humans sincerely don’t think too much about how they brush their teeth. Designed to reduce brushing time and effort, while doubling efficiency, the Encompass takes the electric toothbrush’s mission a few steps further.
The Encompass toothbrush’s unique J-shaped design is what sets it apart. Standing at the intersection between regular toothbrushes and those newfangled U-shaped toothbrushes we’ve been seeing on Kickstarter, Encompass has a design that balances efficiency, expertise, and sensibility. Its J-shape allows it to self-adjust to the shape of your jaw, covering both your upper and lower teeth with bristles that vibrate at a precise 100 strokes per second, while the bristles themselves are positioned to give you the right pressure, intensity, and angle for efficient brushing in just 10 seconds on each (left and right) side. The brush covers both your upper and lower set of teeth in one go, as a silent pneumatic pump causes the bristles to vibrate against your teeth, reaching even the difficult spots. Perfected by Ryan, his dentist father, and the former director of engineering at Clarisonic and Sonicare, Encompass does a better job of cleaning your teeth in 20 seconds than you probably would with those two minutes your dentist tells you to spend polishing your pearly whites.
The Encompass comes with its own charging dock, cable, and even a travel case so you can take your 20-second expert brushing routine with you. Whether for children, the elderly, or anyone who wants really clean teeth, Encompass makes sure every single human brushes better – faster!
Developed by Sonicare’s former Director of Engineering, Encompass toothbrush brushes your teeth in 20 seconds, while eliminating user error. Cleaning half your teeth at once, the brush head self-adjust to your mouth, ensuring an optimal clean every time, even if you have misaligned, crooked, or missing teeth.
Only 1 in 10 People Brush Correctly
90% of cavities and gum diseaase are caused by incorrect brushing. With Encompass 10 in 10 will brush correctly.
Designed by Dental Professionals, Engineered by Experts
Devleoped by Sonicare’s former Director of Engineering.
20 Seconds to “Dentist Clean”
With Encompass, you brush all 3 surfaces of the teeth in half of your mouth simultaneously for 10 seconds. Cleaning half your teeth at once, the brush head self-adjusts to your mouth, ensuring an optimal cleaning of your teeth and gums every time in just 20 seconds. The “flex fingers” of the J-shaped brush head adjust to any imperfections in teeth alignment as well as variations in teeth size and shape, while the longitudinal flex point adjusts for ideal arch fit.
What if a pump inside the handle could send pulses of air to a bladder, which could effectively and quietly drive the brush head? This is the technology behind Encompass. The patented Air Pump System quietly delivers 100 brush strokes per second, providing a gentle and effective cleaning of the teeth and gum line.
Encompass is for Everyone
Because Encompass does the brushing for you, people with Parkinson’s, tremors, or limited dexterity can optimally bursh their teeth, retaining their dignity, confidence and independence.
Now parents cam feel confident letting their kids brush their own teeth before rushing out the door to school and when it’s time for bed.
The inspiration for a product’s form can come from anywhere, this leads to beautifully unique and strikingly elegant forms that demand our attention, to be created. That’s exactly what the AVID sink achieves, as its form encourages the viewer to touch, caress and explore its form, right from the first moment their eyes make contact with it! Inspired by the deformation of a plush surface when we apply pressure with our fingers, the organic indent forms the vessel for the water to be held within!
You’d struggle to find a sink that carries a sculpture-like form anywhere near as elegant as this!

Form and function marry well in the conceptual BR555 portable hairdryer. Inspired by the Braun 550 series – from 1976 – the new-age BR555 is designed to fit in your travel case. The power of the Sirocco fan, used in its construction, is good enough to work noiselessly as well dry your hair efficiently.
The design is very fluid if you ask me, it can be used as a travel piece, but at the same time it can fit well into any bathroom or dressing table. I like the fact that it has a completely folding form, and giving the dryer a completely compact footprint and making it easy to store it.
“Hairdryer products have more time not to be used than when they are used, so we have been considering designs that can harmonize in space such as bathrooms and dressing rooms,” Jung told Yanko Design.
“This hairdryer adopts a Sirocco fan. The Sirocco fan makes less noise. It features storage and portability by applying a structure that rarely folds the steering wheel among the Sirocco type. Minimalistic intake pattern, expressing the beauty and space harmony as a beauty product.”
“I disassembled a couple of hairdryers to see how that works also how the internal structure looks like and designed for and then tried to make a 1:1 prototype model to check the scale. The 90° is cordless and is powered by Li-ion battery, the body is made of ABS plastic and has a high polished finish. Its foldable design reduces baggage space making it ideal for both traveling and everyday use.”
It’s hard, when you look at something as simple and clever as the TIC Travel Bottle, to think of a perfect parallel product only because there isn’t really one. The TIC Travel Bottle comes from insight, and is a solution to a problem we’ve all faced. Rather than traveling with 5-10 miniature bottles with your shampoo, conditioner, bath gel, and your skincare regimen, the TIC travel bottle puts all of those pesky liquids into a singular, hard-case container with a rotating mechanism like the chamber of a revolver gun, to let you access all your bath and post-bath essentials. It’s like a Rolodex met your bathroom cabinet… not the best comparison, but that’s probably only because the TIC is such a unique little product.
The TIC Travel Bottle comes from a realization that those miniature shampoo and conditioner bottles you pick up at hotels are never safe in your suitcase. A little manhandling by airport staff and the bottles open up inside your bag, potentially ruining your clothes and your belongings. Why yes, you could wrap them in a plastic bag, but honestly how safe is that? The TIC Travel Bottle holds all those liquids inside separate containers that sit inside the bottle’s hard outer shell. Designed to be much more than an organizer, the TIC actually lets you easily access your toiletries too, with a pump mechanism that is as easy as pressing a lever to dispense your shampoo, conditioner, or body-wash. Perfect for using in the bath when your hands are wet and you can’t really see well enough to fiddle with bottle caps, TIC lets you access everything in one solid avatar. A rotating upper compartment holds essentials that can be dispensed via the pump, and a lower compartment for holding things like creams and ointments.
Designed in 2016 and perfected in 2019 with its version 2.0, the TIC Travel Bottles really simplify the ordeal of traveling with your toiletries. Available in Shower and Skin variants, the TIC come with multiple pre-labeled compartments that are easy to read, access, and refill. Each TIC comes with a small funnel that lets you conveniently fill shampoos, gels, conditioners, and serums into the pump-bottles, and the labels molded right into the bottle caps just makes life easier, both while packing and while using the TIC. To simplify things further, the containers come with markings too, to let you know when you’re running short on supplies and need to refill your bottles. Ultimately, the TIC Travel Bottle v2.0 just compresses your entire bathroom cabinet into a small, convenient, hard-shell container that remains protected inside your suitcase unlike most travel bottles… and is handy enough to compactly fit in with the rest of your luggage and use no matter where you’re traveling!
TIC Travel Bottles V2.0 are an elegant, intuitive and simple solution to traveling with skin and shower products. Each bottle contains removable internal containers that form a user-friendly travel dispenser – just press for what you need. Lightweight, cylindrical and compact.
TIC Travel Bottles V2.0 are easy to fill, pack and use, which offer a clever solution for an age-old issue, no more bulky bags and fiddly containers!

Assuming the avatar of a halo around your shower-head, the VAND does something simple yet necessary for your body. It purifies the water that you bathe with, protecting the skin from the harshness of mineralized hard water that’s filled with chemicals that dry out the skin, give you irritability, and prevent your soaps and shampoos from working effectively. Vand purifies your shower-water of bad minerals and introduces good minerals in, making your skin and scalp healthier in the longer run.
Most people don’t give their shower water a second thought. If it’s clear, it’s clean, right? Well not necessarily. Water can be hard or soft, impure or pure, depending on where you live. It could have chemicals in it that make it unfit for consumption, or even for bathing with. VAND works like an active filtration system, sitting right between the water outlet and the shower head. Its universal design allows it to fit between most showers rather seamlessly, screwing into place securely. While showering, the water passes through VAND’s dual filtration system embedded within its looped design. One filtration cartridge removes harmful items from the water like dirt, rust, odor, chlorine, and microorganisms, while the other enriches it with good vitamins and minerals that hydrate your skin and cleanse your scalp. The VAND works actively, purifying the water as it passes through the system in just mere seconds.
What really sets VAND apart, aside from its advanced filtration system, is its design. With a matte black, speckled design and a smooth looped shape, the VAND truly looks like a premium bath accessory, opting for something that seems more like a design-conscious product and less like a piece of plumbing. The looped enclosure holds two easily accessible filtration units (color coded for convenience). The filter units last a year upon installation, and the guys at VAND even have a subscription model set up to help you replace the cartridges when they need changing.
Ultimately, the VAND just makes showering more effective. Made to clean the water you clean yourself with, VAND is a perfect solution for places with hard, mineralized, or contaminated ground water. Water that passes through VAND’s dual filtration system is easier on the skin and scalp, making your hair look healthy and feel softer, while relieving your skin of outbreaks, reactions, and causing eczema relief. The soft water even allows shampoos and conditioners to work much more effectively, guarding your scalp from flakiness and itchiness, while protecting your curly, straightened, or colored hair. We don’t really pay much attention to the quality of the water we bathe with. The VAND shower-water purifier makes sure that we never need to…
The Vand Team have re-imagined water purification down to its core essentials; the subtractive module filters pollutants from your water; harmful minerals, chemicals, bacteria, viruses, and other bad stuff you don’t need. The additive module inserts essential vitamins and minerals that bring balance back to the water.

The Problem and How VAND Fixes It
The existence of harmful pollutants in public utility water as well as private groundwater has been well documented. Some of the most commonly occurring pollutants are:
– THM: Trihalomethanes (THM) are a group of four chemicals that are formed along with other disinfection by products when chlorine or other disinfectants used to control microbial contaminants in drinking water react with naturally occurring organic and inorganic matter in water.
The VAND removes all THMs from your water using proven US EPA recommended technology – a layer of activated carbon.
– Chromium-6: This cancer-causing chemical best known for its role in the Erin Brockovich story, has been found at higher-than-recommended levels in the tap water supplying two-thirds of all Americans, according to a report from the Environmental Working Group, compiled by PBS.
The VAND removes all Chomium-6 from your water using proven micro-filtration technology.
– Chlorine: As scientists have looked into the potentially dangerous effects of chlorine, use of the chemical has been linked to a wide range of ailments, including various cancers, reproductive problems, problems with the immune system, and heart attacks.
The VAND removes all (99.9%) of Chlorine and Chloramines from your water using the most effective, proven, and US DOA recommended technology: Addition of Vitamin-C, which immediately neturalizes Chlorine to render it harmless.
– Sediments such as metal flakes and rust from old pipes, sand and dirt, or organic material suspended in the water of lakes, rivers and streams from soil erosion.
The VAND microscopic filter layer removes all sediments larger than 7 microns (For comparison, the avg. human hair is about 60 microns) using proven micro-filtration technology.
– These are organisms in water, and vary by season and climate. They are also referred to as microbes or microbiological contaminants. Examples of biological or microbial contaminants include bacteria, viruses, protozoan, and parasites.
The VAND’s Anti-bacterial filter layer effectively kills all live contaminants from your water.
Lack of Nutrients
Most water lacks the complete spectrum of vitamins and minerals needed for better hair, skin and overall health.
The VAND Additive module, adds these vitamins to your water before it reaches you. The exact mix of vitamins A, B, E, and others, including minerals, is determined by your needs, based on your answers to a quiz we send you with the first delivery.

Behind The Scenes of The VAND
‘Vand’ is the Danish word for water, and by aligning with our design belief that form should follow function, the name proclaims the unit’s primary role as a water purifier. Its a reference to clear natural springs and endless summers of Scandinavia – a feeling we would love bring home with the VAND.
Thermochromic Transparency: The VAND becomes semi-transparent when hot water passes through it, showing you remaining life on modules inside
This isn’t one of those yellow-makes-me-look-younger or vertical-stripes-make-me-look-thinner sort of deals. The designers behind the Sildior claim to be able to physically pause the signs of aging by relying on a specially engineered fabric with an anti-aging Sericin protein built into it. This is the Sildior, a towel woven from 100% Mulberry Silk, a high-grade silk obtained from the cocoon of the Bombyx mori silkworm. The silkworm is also responsible for producing a protein called Sericin, found in most cosmetics for its ability hydrate the skin and reduce the presence of wrinkles. Engineer the Sericin, a by-product of silk-weaving, back into the silk and you’ve got yourself a fabric that can literally make you look younger!
Partnering with expert silk-weavers in Portugal, designer Mark Reissi created the Sildior, a luxury towel that helps keep your skin hydrated and flawless. The towel comes made 100% from high-quality mulberry silk, and is designed to be hypoallergenic and super-absorbent. Fibers of the towel are infused with the Sericin protein that act upon the skin when you’re wiping yourself down with the towel. The Sildior towels come in a variety of colors and sizes, sporting a graphical representation of the mulberry silk balls that are unwound and woven into the fabric. Anti-aging fabric… what will they think of next?!
Sildior – World’s Only 100% Mulberry Silk and Anti-aging Towel
Sildior silk towels aren’t just highly absorbent, but the protein “sericin” present in the silk prevents the skin from falling victim to the harmful bacteria that causes unnatural aging and wrinkles in your skin.
100% mulberry silk offers a smooth touch for your skin and does not lose integrity over time. With natural ingredients at their core, the silk towels tend to keep your skin fresh and youthful for a longer period of time.
Why Mulberry Silk
Mulberry silk is 100% natural, odorless, hypoallergenic, highly absorbent, smooth, and doesn’t or damage your soft skin as you dry yourself after a long relaxing hot bath. Every one of their hand, body, and face towels gives you a silky touch and anti-aging treatment of sericin, a natural protein found in mulberry silk.
Sericin, has been proven to prevent wrinkles, spots and age lines. Let the proteins in silk rejuvenate your body with beauty, energy and anti-aging elements so that you stay young and feel youthful for decades to come.
One of the best features of silk towels is that they don’t become corrosive or rough with usage. Silk threads will always stay silky smooth to offer a gentle caressing touch for the skin.

Sildior Towels’ Story
“We are proud to call ourselves the pioneers in the industry of silk towels. Our experts traveled across the globe in search of the top towel manufacturers. From the birthplace of towels, Turkey, to India and Pakistan (home to the largest towel manufacturers in the world), no manufacturer possessed the ability to create a silk towel from 100% silk yarn,” Mark Reissi tells YD.
“Our trip across the globe took us to Portugal, where we found an old and family owned production facility, which specializes in high end towel production. Our team shared our vision with them, and we soon became partners in creating an anti-aging gift for the world. It had never been done before, and we took it upon ourselves to introduce, engineer, and invent the world’s first 100% silk towel.”
