Time-Sensitive Shower Curtain Spikes Inflate to Limit Water Consumption
Hilarious project from artist Elisabeth Buecher featured on designboom. The curtain is not only charming and cheeky, it also seeks to raise awareness about water consumption.
well, fear no more, that is if you are an express shower user, as london-based artist elisabeth buecher has created the perfect shower solution, quite fittingly named ‘spiky’. her sensor-equipped curtain features inflatable soft spikes that fill up as soon as the shower has been running for over four minutes. in a harmful yet still very annoying fashion, these colorful objects effectively push the bather – most probably when midway through singing a power ballad – out from under the water and forcing them to stop.
