Cherry-Coated Bathroom Essentials

This Garbage Bin and Toilet Brush Keep Your Space Chic and Tidy

— June 28, 2013 — Art & Design
This scrumptious-looking trash bin and toilet brush adds a sweet touch to every washroom. The ‘Cherry Bin’ garbage can and ‘Cherry’ lavatory brush by Thailand-based company Qualy incorporate the shape of a delicious fruit to home tools that serve mundane purposes.

Shaped immaculately like a perfect fruit, the Cherry Bin and Cherry disguise mess inside its sleek red fruit. When the green stem is pulled to open the lid of the garbage can, the Cherry Bin will reveal a pile of trash. After usage, the Cherry Bin goes back to looking sleek and stylish. The Cherry toilet cleaner uses the cherry’s stem as the lavatory brush’s handle. This, too, can easily be pulled and closed. The Cherry brush is not only aesthetically pleasing, but is a smart way to store the not so aesthetically pleasing cleaning tool.
Trend Themes
1. Fruit-inspired Home Tools - Designing home tools that incorporate the shape of a fruit brings a new level of novelty and fun to mundane household items.
2. Chic Disguised Waste Solutions - Creating a stylish exterior for waste bins and other waste management tools could be a disruptive innovation in the waste management industry.
3. Aesthetic Cleaning Tools - Designing cleaning tools that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing could be a new trend in the home cleaning industry.
Industry Implications
1. Home Decor Industry - The fruit-inspired design of these bathroom essentials can create new opportunities in the home decor industry to add playful elements in small home accessories.
2. Waste Management Industry - Creating waste management products like the Cherry Bin that hides the appearance of waste with an attractive exterior could create a new trend in waste management.
3. Home Cleaning Industry - Incorporating the design element for everyday cleaning tools, such as the Cherry toilet cleaner, can create new opportunities in the home cleaning industry to add the element of design to functional products.
