This project became Barber & Osgerby’s first mass produced product range. The designer Konstantin Grcic, who was, at the time, the art director of Authentics, proposed a brief to design a collection of simple products for the home. These home accessories were predominantly focused on the bathroom, some of which have multiple uses. The range includes a waste bin, wall hook, beaker and soap dish: there are eight products in total. It was important that the forms were simple and easy to use. Gloss white ABS plastic was chosen for the bodies of the pieces, referring to the reflective ceramic tiles that are so often found in the bathroom. In contrast, brightly coloured, matt ABS was selected for the parts that people needed to touch: the lids and tops.
