Brushmaker / Living Product


"Brushmaker" is a kind of cleaning brush that made of old toothbrush. Normally, people change their
toothbrush about three months cycle.
On average, the quantity of toothbrushes that are threw away is 4 in a year. And even for four family members, there are about 16. It’s quite a lot.
So we suggest that reusing the old toothbrushes to save resources and give a
second life to old toothbrush. We modularize toothbrush head that users can make a brush by
themselves. It can be detachable form like block, so it can be attached to brushmaker. And also it is separated from body part. Therefore we can save a body part too.
