Intro to: Smart Tile - For women who shave in the shower, the task can be daunting and sometimes dangerous. Through online surveys and one-on-one interviews, I found that most women are stretching into awkward positions and relying on slippery surfaces to hold their foot while approaching their legs with a sharp razor.
My solution is a standard sized wall tile, with an unobtrusive form and in-mold texture to gently hold your heel in place while shaving. The form also allows for drainage.
To arrive at my final design I experimented with clay, producing many form studies, which you can see at the top and bottom of the above image.
