Old form meets new material in the light-hearted line of bath accessories by American industrial designer Josh Owen for Kontexture.
Based on the classic shape of the bathroom plunger, the new WC Line includes a waste bin, toilet brush, and plunger. The pieces are made of colored silicone (which lasts longer than rubber) with wooden handles sourced locally to their production location. They are washable and made to last.
