Our lifestyle has a great impact on the Earth’s systems. It is clear that we need sustainable products and systems to reduce our environmental impact.
In the fall of 2019, the first year Master students got the opportunity to develop projects in collaboration with The Glass Factory, Boda and Bergdalahyttan. The idea was not only to develop glass products, but to understand the potential in sustainable and cyclic systems for the future.
The result is the exhibition: Transparency – of glass and cyclic systems.
To design a container used for storing a shaving brush before and after shaving, allowing it to dry freely. It shall also function as a container for whisking up shaving cream before application and holding water to be used while shaving.
A container used for storing a shaving brush before and after shaving, allowing it to dry freely.
For this project we set out to explore the versatility of glass as a material and how it could be used to encourage consumers to adapt circular habits in everyday life.
I quickly identified a standard bottle of shaving cream to be a prime example of a linear product which exists because of simplification for the user at the cost of the environment. The alternative is to use shaving cream and a brush for application. IIn my research I found a gap in the market for a container to store the shaving brush. Maybe you could use the same container to prepare the shaving cream and thereafter fill it with water to
be used while shaving, instead of leaving the tap running simultaneously.
The result is a container used for storing a shaving brush before and after shaving, allowing it to dry freely. While also functioning as a container for whisking up shaving cream before application and holding water to be used during shaving. Portability for the product is a focus area.
