We take daily design for granted and rarely think about how it could change. Take, for example, the toothbrush. In Sri Lanka we keep the head in a little plastic case (to keep hoonas et all from crawling on the bristles), but how disgusting does that case get. I try not to think. That’s one problem. Via Uncrate, I saw a design company that cracked another one – rinsing your mouth.
This is the Rinser Brush, by Amron Experimental. It’s damn cool, right? Such a simple yet effective tweak. To rinse your mouth after brushing you have to either A) put your head sideways in the sink or B) scoop water with your hands. I’ve been in hotels (? perhaps not the word) where I don’t want to put my mouth anywhere near the sink and hands are pretty inutile for holding liquid. The Rinser, however, creates a simple spout using simple physics. Water goes in and flows beautifully out. A neat little piece of design.
