Reborn by Being Object


Reborn is the name of a bath and water faucet developed by Chinese designers Being Object.


"Being Object is a design house based in Shanghai, we just finished a product concept named Reborn, and now are preparing prototypes," says Reamon Yu of Being Object.


The following text is from Being Object:



Concept: Reborn is a set of bathtub and water faucet designs. The core idea of the project is to regenerate the existing bathtubs and water faucets by refreshing the shapes and finishes. The shape of bathtub was inspired from beans. Here are the connections: Beans are the seeds of new lives, and water can clean our bodies and refresh our minds, a man soaks in a bathtub just like a fetus gestates in a womb. The design of the water faucet was applied with human consciousness (Without –thought-idea), every person can easily use the faucets. The length of the bathtub: 1800mm

  • Playful. Elegant. Accessible.

    Pointless – the tap valve is neither functional or beautiful, this should never go into production – it would be a complete waste of resources

  • yung

    where there’s production, there’s waste.

    *makes witty comment about beans and farting in the bath*

    Naoto simplicity mixed with lovgrove blob like form for the faucet, interesting combo. think the faucet would make a better wind turbine or fan, just don’t see the relevance of this design language applied what should be a simple faucet.

    i think its actually a pretty honest form

    Personally, I love the tap. I don’t see a problem with form over function, infact I wish designers would do it more often
