In the light of recent stockpiling, I was reminded of a post I’d written years ago on my old blog and I thought I’d re-post it here today to share something whimsical and light hearted as a #FridayFaves with you this week – an interesting take on the cloud.
Light hearted yes, but also really lovely! How cool is this toilet roll cloud? VERY! I want one!
Relax. You’re in the restroom.
Designed by French artist Bertrand Jayr, the CLOUD toilet paper shelf brings a little fresh air to the places that need it the most. There’s no need to hide your toilet paper any more – instead turn it into a work of art!
The Cloud Toilet Paper Shelf is sold by Lyon Beton, an online shop offering all manner of concrete furniture and home accessories including grey matter book-ends, tables, chairs, wall art, nuclear plant pots, and of course the unique cloud-inspired toilet roll shelf featured here.
The large model Cloud holds up to 14 rolls in a majestic cumulus formation and even looks great on its own!
Tight on wall-space?
Consider opting for the more compact but no less unique small-sized concrete clouds that hold 8 rolls.
Or you could even opt for the smallest item in the range, the toilet roll dispenser that hold just two rolls and has an integrated serrated edge for tearing paper off the roll.
I absolutely love design like this! It takes something we use everyday but don’t really consider in much depth and transforms it into something not only practical but a thing of beauty.
I have always loved clouds, so much so that I make my own cloud window decorations and have tons of them hanging up in my own studio window. I think if I had this kind of toilet roll storage in my bathroom or toilet, I would smile every time I entered the room. It would fill me up with so much joy!
I wonder whether they do mail order….
Adding poetry, humor and singularity to areas and rooms who are so often deprived of these qualities. This designer shelf, with curved, graphic and refined lines is associated with toilet paper rolls who are deliberately displayed and no longer hidden.Bertrand Jayr
