Being Object – Reborn

reborn project being object

China-based designers Being Object see a lot of similarities between man and bean in terms of their relation to water. What do mankind and beans have in common? If you’re answer is they should both be held accountable for their own actions while at sea, you’re only partially right and potentially insane. The real answer is, Beans are the seeds of new lives and as such need water to grow. “Mankind uses water to clean bodies and refresh our minds, a man soaks in a bathtub just like a fetus gestates in a womb.” It is this similar reliance on water that serves as the inspiration behind Being Object’s Reborn bath and faucet project. The core idea of the project is to regenerate the existing bathtubs and water faucets by refreshing the shapes and finishes. The shape of the bathtub was inspired from beans whereas the faucet is designed with human consciousness in mind and bears slight resemblance to a sprout. Finally, a bathtub that’s both people and bean friendly. What will they think of next?
