A line of creative soaps that look like decorative items.
Originally established in Brooklyn by a creative couple, Wary Meyers started out as a small studio that provided interior design services. In the beginning, the client list included friends of the two founders as well as artsy locals. With the expansion of the studio’s portfolio, the brand started to receive recognition. A column for Time Out New York and a book deal soon followed. After relocating to Portland, Maine, the founders put together the first Wary Meyers collection of soaps and candles. The line celebrates creativity every step of the way. From the vibrant designs to the bright colors and the scent combinations, these soaps look distinctive and smell divine.
The collection draws inspiration from nature as well as from iconic designers. For example, the Astral Shower and Cosmic Yuzu soaps reference Japanese designer Shiro Kuramata’s concrete and terrazzo work. While the former features a white glycerine base, the latter has a black bar. Both of them boast pieces of brightly colored soap that recreate the appearance of terrazzo. In a similar way, Virgo Cluster explores the concept of blending a rainbow of colors inside a clear base, with a striking effect.
Other soaps pay homage to Italian icon Ettore Sottsass and his legendary designs. The Poolside soap stands out in the collection thanks to its 4-stripe blue gradient that seems to capture light as it travels through the entire depth of an azure pool. Bringing a celebratory note into bathrooms, Pink Champagne features shades of pink and – yes, you guessed it – a champagne scent. Minimalism lovers can also make sure that their soap fits into their decor with Blanc de Blanc. It features a translucent/white pattern and has no fragrance.
As beautifully scented as they are stunning, the Wary Meyers soaps combine different notes to bring summer, fruit orchards, or Japanese landscapes into interiors, every time you wash your hands. Handmade in small batches, all Wary Meyers soaps have a 100% pure vegetable base and contain no phthalates, parabens, alcohol, detergents, or sodium lauryl sulfate. Gentle on the skin but bold in appearance, these soaps are ideal for design lovers. Photographs© Wary Meyers.
