Nathalie Stämpfli

Swiss designer Nathalie Stampfli did develop this soap dispenser which is using solid soap.
Nathalie says: "Today, most of the soap we use is liquid soap, which contains a lot of water. Block soap instead is more concentrated and therefore has some ecological benefits: You don’t transport unnecessary water around. In place of plastic bottles you can simply use paper for packaging. The solid blocks can easily be piled and allow a greater space efficiency in a truck."
Her Soap Flakes looks also very nice.

Lucas Mullie'

Dutch BA graduate of the Design Academy Eindhoven, Lucas Mullie', was inspired by the industrial atmosphere of the city Eindhoven, where Philips industrial heritage is still extremely present.
For his graduation project he then decided to design a restaurant where the presentations, the services and the all food organization will make you feel as a semi-industrial production process is taking place.
Lucas was a chef before to attend the Design Academy, and with this project he did find the perfect combination between the two industries, food & design.
