The old and familiar bar of soap has slowly been taken over by the liquid variety.

But solid soap is much more concentrated, which has its ecological merits. No need for plastic bottles to contain it, no need to transport large amounts of water over enormous distances to dilute it, and solid soap will simply last longer.

But it is not as convenient. Remember the queasy feeling when scrapes of solid soap enters your nail bed? A bar of soap will also slip from our hands, become dirty and squashy by the sink, and will often accumulate large amounts of bacteria.

The soap holders Soap Flakes designed by Nathalie Stämpfli offer a solution: for each wash they will shave off tiny soap flakes that will feel comfortable to the touch and will easily dissolve in water. The remaining bar of soap will stay dry and spread its pleasant scent.

The first version needs to be attached to the wall. You can easily use it with one hand; while you are pushing the grater, you are capturing the flakes. With its open shape it lets the soap block evolve its fragrances into the room. The second version is a grater that can stand by itself. Therefore it’s more flexible in usage. It could be placed in the same way as a shower gel or shampoo.
