Creative Soap Design: Tetra Soap

View all 9 Photos

A soap like no other.

After thousands of years of changing shape, scent, color, or texture, the ubiquitous soap gets a truly ingenious makeover. Made by Hong Kong-based Furnitury, Tetra Soap revolutionizes the everyday item with a clever design. The distinctive shape reminds of concrete tetrapods that minimize the erosion effects of waves on beaches all over the world. Sculptural and modern, the creative soap looks more like a décor element than a practical item. The tetrapod shape certainly makes it stand out from the crowd; it also ensures that it’s 100% slip-free, easy to hold, and quick drying. An included felt coaster provides perfect support and helps to display Tetra Soap in style.

The brand embraces the slow-made movement, making the soap by hand using the cold-process method. This manufacturing also makes the product gentler for the skin. The production stage includes a 30-day curing period, with every soap individually created in a silicone mold and then perfected by hand. Natural and suitable for all skin types, each Tetra Soap features a blend of high-quality ingredients. These include myrrh and tea tree essential oils, sandalwood, and coconut oil as well as organic citrus bioflavonoids and Italian extra virgin olive oil.

The Kickstarter campaign to bring the creative soap to production has shattered the initial goal, with 18 days still to go at the time of writing. You can become a backer until November 28, and choose between various options. The backer packages include one, three, or six soap packages, as well as a yearly subscription to receive one soap every month and maybe even get the chance to try out brand new scents as they’re being developed.
