‘Baru’ is a new type of dishwashing utensil inspired by ecological ideas of ‘Baru-Gongyang’, a traditional meal rite performed in Buddist temples. When we do the dishes, we usually wash off the scraps first and clean them with detergent once more. The amount of water is determined by the visible amount of scraps, so it’s used more than we need, increasing water usage and time.
We designed ‘Baru’ with the motif of 'Danmuji', a small piece of side dish that’s commonly used in ‘Baru- Gongyang’. ‘Baru’ can effectively wipe the bowl with the round edge and clean bits of stuck scraps with the backside bumps.
