Best of nyigf 2012: josh owen for kontextur.
Finally, someone has taken their designer hands to the ugliest thing in my bathroom: the toilet plunger. You might have seen Josh Owen‘s new WC Line at Accent on Design at NYIGF last week as part of Kontextur, the go-to source for all those seeking a sleeker, more refined bathroom. Owen’s three-part WC series includes a waste bin, toilet brush and plunger. The former has a handy wooden dowel attached to lid to keep your used tissues from being an eyesore, and the plunger and brush are hidden from view in a clever little rubber container.
“These products exude clarity by blending utility, usability, materiality and engineering with careful attention to the concerns of space limitations often accompanying their context in the bath.”
