The Kontextür Tissue Box Cover is an understated yet potent antidote to the potpourri of ubiquitous kitsch and oft-smudged metallic ones dominating the category. This thoughtful new design redirects the tissue box from its typical role, hidden away from view, and celebrates its function by turning it into an objet d'art. The iconic factory silhouette with its smokestack-like extension at the top serving as the opening for the tissues creates a strong visual interplay between the shapes, colors and materials. What’s more, the tissues dispense like a dream.
According to Owens when asked about his approach to design “ To quote one of my favorite musicians, Michael Franti: ‘I am deadly serious about us having fun.’ And my concept for the Tissue Box Cover is an exact expression of that sentiment. The visual and tactile softness of the form combine with the material in a way that suggests a gentle object. While the bold colors make it pop.”
