Ripples / Soap holder


"Ripples" enables people to use soap more effectively and ecologically.
After washing with soap, we can hardly get rid of the residual water from the surface of soap.Gradually, the residual water softens the surface and makes the sticky soap harder to use.Insipred by the deposit mechanism of alluvial fan and the shape of ripples,we find a way to use soap more effectively and ecologically by separating residual water from soap and reusing it.

The design consists of 2 “ripples.” After use, the soapy water moves from higher one to lower one.As the gradient decreases, the soapy water begins to deposit on the lower ripple for reuse.
