add a bit of ‘space’ to your kitchen or bathroom, with british designer duncan shotton‘s UFO soap pumps, launching at this year’s designboom mart from october 25th – november 3rd, 2014 during tokyo design week 2014. by pushing down on the spaceship hull, a single portion of soap to scrub your hands or detergent to clean your dishes is dispensed. designed in collaboration with entrex inc., the spacecraft soap dispenser — complete with tractor beams — is available in two versions and in either yellow or blue, with either a human or cow caught mid-abduction.
