Kontextür has a penchant for taking seemingly ordinary and passé items and making them relevant and extraordinary. Teaming up once again with Icelandic designer Atlason, this time to reinvent the fallen but classic Rubber Ducky in the signature Kontextür way. Duck Harry is a cheeky and truly contemporary (and lead free) homage to this iconic bath denizen.
Made from super durable silicone, with a velvety matte finish, Harry by presence and weight has a good deal of heft. When it comes to function, besides perking up the bath or any other space that needs a little pop, this Duck is very versatile. It can serve as a toothbrush or toothpaste tube holder, a doorstop or a paperweight. Harry can do almost anything...except float!
Atlason gave a little insight into his process, “The design is essentially an exercise in geometric shapes. Where the bottom oval is exactly twice the dimension of the head and the tail and beak are the same shape, rotated. Yet, within all this geometry there is a surprisingly cute expression with which we connect.”
