To really chose which direction to take my project in, I did two class anonymous surveys where I asked people to write activities they did in the bathroom and rate it from private to public and I asked them to rate products they used in the bathroom from necessities to luxuries. I feel that this has helped me see what is important to people while washing as well as what is available to them. This is great information to take forward with me because now I could problem solve for things that are lacking or build upon popular items.

This exhibit helped me realize exactly what was considered unclean through all the things that were thrown away. Dirty dippers, tissues and grease were some of the main items down there. Maybe I could improve upon this growing problem of collecting garbage or use this knowledge to help hide away things that are considered unclean.

Bucket Bathing by Rafiq Maqbool

Details

Some people who only have access to taps but not showers have baths from big buckets and smaller jugs- something I have done first hand. This method conserves enormous amounts of water while still doing the sane job as a shower. I think I would like to create a similar solution for water conservation or maybe improve upon this method.

I like that this design directs water flow to whats most convenient to the user. I have a funnel idea that does something similar (without the plumbing) but this reference really reminds me to make sure that the way I change the water flow should be helpful to the user- not just for beauty.

A BETTER SHAMPOO BOTTLE BY TROY TURNER 11/21/2017

Details

This bottle pivots on the curved surface below it to make the direction convenient for the the user. This is another great example of what I'm trying to achieve with my funnel idea. I'm thinking of creating attachment to the tap that moves direction of it a little- maybe a sphere could do the job.

Unbleached Coffe Filters

Details

I was looking at these coffee filters because they do a very good job of keeping coffee grains out but allowing the coffee to drain and this precision is something I could use in my filter for a simpler outcome.

I love the intricacy in the geometric designs on both the walls and the layout of the space. I find it makes everything equal from every side- an important aspect in my project.

While I haven't taken this picture, I have experienced first hand religious bathing in India in the Ganges river. While it is very spiritual and rejuvenating in that sense, the water is horribly dirty with hundreds of other people and trash.

Details

Here, a woman is spreading the ashes of a deceased loved one into the Ganges, a practice done by all Hindus after cremation. The journey to the Ganges is supposed to be very religious but it also dirties the river a lot- the same river where people take a religious bath. I think something that could filter this water would be extremely useful because it would allow people to keep practicing their culture while still being more hygienic.

Sometimes my product looks like this bird, maybe I could make this a unique selling point for my product. I could relate my product to nature to sell purity or it's use outdoors- or I could aim it towards children and make the bird like a toy or cartoon character.

‘BREAKING THE MOLD’ OF SOAP DESIGN BY SARANG SHETH 01/26/2018

Details

This soap doesn't slip because of its shape even when it shrinks due to being used. I think that the idea the form of an object can be its 'smart' aspect is fantastic and I think I will make the form of my project as prominent in its design.

I love this design because of all the unique things this brush could clean. its so deceptively simple yet a normal brush couldn't so the same job. I hope to bring the same type of simplicity but utility to my own work. Maybe I could also develop this idea into a washing tool by maybe adding a loofa.

I have an idea to create a stool with some handicap attachments so I looked at this chair to see exactly what was required such as hand rests and foot rests. (This chair is used for an autistic man.)

This water has malleable walls so it isn't constricted to a space. That is great for storage as well as letting you know how much water you have left. I think something that is adaptable is very important in products, especially when I am looking at a divers user group.

Rubber Faucet by Francesco Cappuccio

Details

This faucet is a little like my final idea because its made of rubber so it can direct the water in any way the user wants. I like this idea but I feel like its a little too constricted to the normal shape of the tap. My product will have a similar function but the movement of the water will be completely unique.

Bobble Water Bottle

Details

I'm looking at filter for water for my product to be used in outdoor waterbodies and this product is by far my favorite because of how compact and simple it looks. It doesn't have any extra parts, rather the straw is the filter. I hope to achieve the same shape and simplicity in my own because it looks sleek and appealing like water itself.
