Meet Spiky, A Shower Curtain That Will Attack You!!

/ by

Like long showers? Well, be careful of Spiky, a shower curtain that will inflate its spikes to let you know that you’ve showered TOO LONG! Four minutes after starting your shower, this curtain’s pointy bits expand to make you feel pushed out!

 I know, you’re asking, “Where can I buy this?!” Well, sorry to report, you can’t! Spiky is a concept by London-based designer Elisabeth Buecher who writes:

…These curtains are not products but art installations. They aim at provoking a debate around water issues and making people more aware of their consumption.

    It is sad, finally! Why do I always want to buy something that is not sold? Something that is essentialy an artistic statement with a taste of of publicism ?! Of course, it is a beautiful and useful thing (unless it causes fear of water (hiydrophobia))! In my opinion – the best invention after a shower Charcot. Thank you, Pee-wee, and for links, too. I’ll keep it on mind!

    This is a wonderful way to save on water consumption. However, my showers take more than 4 minutes. So, Spiky would be attacking me, a lot!

  • Paul, as an Abstract Artist myself, This is a great invention on getting people to become aware of the issue of water consumption & hopefully finds a solution to that issue in being Resolved. Brilliant & genius of the artist at hand here. Love it! ❤ fabulous fabulous Art.

  • Dear Paul,

    I’d like to add, love these blue and green colors the Artist made Spiky (Spikey) reminds me of the most beautiful hues of the Ocean and the Sea, goregous indeed.

    I could just make my own homemade version!!
    But always credit the artists.
