KFM Soap Dish

c. 2016

by Kristine Five Melvaer

The goal of the KFM soap dish was to achieve the best possi­ble func­tion. We’ve all been there –the soap gets soaked in water after repeated use, the water resolves the soap, and it becomes stuck in a grooved and hard to clean surface. The answer to these prob­lems lies in the shape of the KFM soap dish, which features large cuts with a diag­o­nal shape, that leads the water of the object. The piece holds a strong, sculp­tural quality. The clean lines and geomet­ric shadows of the object resonate well with the strik­ing archi­tec­ture which often surrounds the When Objects Work prod­ucts. Avail­able in your choice of oak, walnut or travertine.
