Deadstock Nick Crosbie / Inflate Studio 'Soap Lounger' soap/toothbrush holder made in England circa 2000.
Hands Down my favorite of the Inflate stock. So insane cool and quintessential Y2K design evoking the forms of Marc Newson's chairs of the era. The 'Soap Loungers' feature dip molded thick rubbery PVC blob bodies with footed base, tooth rimmed bowl and bizarre fluted space for toothbrushes. Available in fuschia, lime green and grey. In excellent unused condition. Sold individually.
Virtually impossible to find and were sourced from the original sales gallery in Athens, Greece.
Nick Crosbie founded Inflate in 1995 to launch his range of inflatable products aimed at the gift and homewares market, with the strap-line ‘Fun, Functional & Affordable’. Inflate products established a cult following and were made available around the world. An affirmation of the brand’s success, in 1998 the V&A Museum, London celebrated Inflate with a dedicated show and book with a permanent collection of Inflate products.
