Coral / Soap

iF concept design award 2010

Coral is a pattern changing soap inspired by a coral reef. In the real world, thing gets old and ugly which finally loses its attraction. However, Coral gets more and more beautiful with a growing surface pattern throughout the usage period. The inner soap part which is reproduced from 3d solid pattern evokes a constant change on the surface when it is worn out. Therefore, at the first it may seem like a white normal soap bar, but it changes its pattern dynamically once user uses it. Everyday new-look experience suggests new interaction between daily object and user. It is a beautiful object that brings aliveness in your bathroom.
