Soap by Good Thing and Jasper Morrison on Island Atelier

Is this a case of the Emperor and his new clothes? The fragrance-free, pigment-free glycerin bar of soap is a study in minimalism. Launched as part of home accessories company Good Thing's foray into its own brand line of furnishings and accessories, the company wanted to focus on simplifying the relationship between a person when in their most intimate of spaces and so enlisted the input of designer Jasper Morrison on the project. In terms of design, Soap, as it is aptly called, comes as one large bar consisting of four identical segments which can be broken into four smaller pieces. As for its formulation, working out the proper proportions to produce the perfect product proved problematic as the collaborators wished to produce the most "reduced" bar of soap ever.

While on the face of it, the collaboration might seem frivolous, the result is actually pretty aesthetically pleasing.
