Paper Pot

Many products try to dress up tissues but this is by far my favorite! The Paper Pot from Japan is designed to be used for both toilet paper and tissue paper.

The Perdur lid to this tape dispenser by Norman Foster pushed the tape up for use. When removed, the tape sinks down, allowing the box to be covered by the lid.

Not my typical taste, but there’s something about some of the things at Napastyle that just catch my eye, especially the soap dispenser.

Clockwise from top left…

Bottleneck Saver

The bottleneck saver is a concept design that is part of the ‘Greenhouse Effect’, an exhibition by Orcadesign exploring the theme of sustainability in conjunction with the Singapore Design Festival. It’s designed to be attached to liquid soap dispenser necks and restricts the amount dispensed in order to reduce unnecessary wastage.

I’m just wishing they would actually make this so I could get my kids to stop using so much hand soap when they wash their hands.
