Function Tiles
is an oldie but a goodie. It’s a tile system from 1997 by Droog
Designers Peter van der Jagt, Erik-Jan Kwakkel, and Arnout Visser that
makes the tiles work more functionally, thus the name “Function Tiles”.
The concept is brilliant. That is, getting more out of your shower or
bathroom with limited space. Or, does the system function for
minimalists that need tons of gadgets but want to hide them? However
you spin it, the idea is really, really cool. I mean, how cool would it
be to have a tv built into your shower? Pretty damn cool. BTW, it’s not
available, so if someone could please manufacture this soon, that would
be good.
OK, sure, the project was designed a decade ago, and I’ve really been
trying to keep my design searching very fresh, but I’m starting to take
my guards down and looking for older, fantastic designs. I don’t know
if I would ever go as far as having anything as popular as a
LeCorbusier chair on the site, but preserving the memory of a project
like this seems like a good goal.
