I'm highly impressed by the number of well-thought-out concepts on Hamburg-based designer Catherine Werdel's site. Her slotted toothbrush not only provides a place for it to rest when not in use, but helps you get that last drop of "Ooo-med:"
A project she did for Brita takes into account that many of us apartment-dwellers have tiny sinks that make it impossible to vertically fill their containers:
Her Woody dresser has a top that can slide to the side, providing an extra bit of temporary shelf space or even a place to sit while taking shoes off:
And her Umschlagbar umbrella neatly wraps into one of its own sections, differently colored so you know which one it is.
