Tiles with Fallen Hair--Beautiful or Ugly?
After a good shower lots of hair tends to get left behind on the bathroom floor...giving the bathroom floor a fallen-hair look. Not something that many people would find pretty.
But everything dirty or ugly does not have to be wiped clean, or hidden away. A young designer who is a BA in Ceramics and Glass from University of Art and Design, Helsinki has come up with a novel, innovative new approach.
Her aim is to portray the ugly in an aesthetic manner.
Saara Kaatra has created a set of ceramic tiles for bathrooms, decorated with hair. She says that an aesthetic pattern is created from something that is usually regarded as ugly.
With these tiles the entire bathroom floor, something that all of us expect to find spotlessly clean, gets a pattern of fallen hair.
Call it gross, ugly, or weird; we have to agree that it is innovative. And the designer should be lauded for her aesthetic idea.
