kanban / toiletpaper holder


Kanban is a toilet paper holder for hanging. Disadvantages of existing models are rolls replaced on the ground, getting dirty/wet while mopping the floor. It consists only of two wooden bars, which are coated on the outer surface part of Velcro, a rubber band and a cord.The toilet paper rolls are mounted on the cord. Because of the rubber the wooden bars straddle at the cutted surface, so the roll cannot slide. Now you can pull down a toilet paper roll after another. The rolls, whom slide after, are now slowed down. This concept reminds of a industrial (moving up) principle called" Kanban“, the reason why my project bears this name
