WC Line, 2012

The WC Line (produced by Kontextur and recognized with the 2012 Chicago Good Design Award) consists of a plunger with a storage dish, a toilet brush with a storage vessel and a waste bin. The design uses functionality and performance as the primary measures to define beauty. Based on circular footprints, these items relate to one another naturally in many configurations, never looking out of alignment in their setting. All items in the line are washable and made to last.
