Ring Soap

We love a simple clever idea, Ring Soap is a ring shaped bar of soap that stays dry by hanging on a peg! The minimalist creation is by designer Sebastian Bergne, he was asked by a German brand to design a soap dish, and after much thought, he decided to redesign the soap instead. Ring Soap hangs on its peg and is always ready to use, remaining dry and therefore being consumed more slowly. And, it becomes a graphic element on the wall of your kitchen or bathroom. Currently available in two versions, Emerald and Amber.
