The changing process of soap is: a big block gets smaller and smaller slowly, and eventually becomes a thin one. However, Thrifty is a kind of Chinese traditional virtue. It's just designed for solving this problem and taking full advantage of every piece of soap.
The design inspiration comes from the shape of bean. There is a storage space for the old soap in it, which guide people to put the left over soap in.During the using process, two pieces of soap will integrate into one piece.
