The least talked about room in the house (at least in polite society) has become all the rage for designers wanting to give their products a little edge. While some are content to just improve the look of the bathroom itself, others are dragging the design out of the water closet. Our five favourite toilet-inspired products:
TOILET PAPER | Design Temple, a Mumbai-based graphic design company, recently launched a whimsical product line merging India’s cultural history with a sleek, graphic look. Divya Thakur, the company founder, says the myth of cheerharan, or stripping of the sari, inspired the toilet paper’s design. Available at The Good Earth: Santushi Shopping Arcade, Delhi,: set of 3 rolls costs Rs177
ASHTRAY | Not exactly noted for its appearance, the Indian public toilet has long been ignored by the design industry. But Happily Unmarried, a Delhi-based product line, does not follow conventional design rules. Perfect for adding a bit of cheeky humour to any coffee table; just be aware butt jokes will follow. Available online at www.happilyunmarried.com, Rs400
SINK | Feeling like a trip to the bathroom measures about a negative six on the excitement scale? Italian design company WET! has created a line of bright-coloured sinks sure to liven up your bathroom. LED technology changes the sink from pink to green to purple on a timed basis, making your basin the envy of bathrooms everywhere. Available online at www.bathroom-mania.com, Rs22,905/with LED, Rs42,940
WINE BOTTLE | To keep your half-full bottle of wine from turning to vinegar without destroying the design sensibility of your bar, Happily Unmarried offers a wine stopper shaped like a water faucet. The stopper could only be better if wine actually flowed from the tap. Available online at www.happilyunmarried.com, Rs350
LIP URINAL | Bathroom Mania’s urinal, called Kisses!, may be the solution to India’s public urination problem: Who would ever choose the street again over a pair of red lips? The urinal, which can be installed in homes, has caused quite a stir in Europe. Men just got the best bathroom break ever. Available online at www.bathroom-mania.com, Rs39,898.
