Morrison has taken his pared-back aesthetic to the extreme with Soap

Morrison has taken his pared-back aesthetic to the extreme with Soap.

This product is a simple body-washing product that is decorated only with an imprint of its name. This time the British designer Jasper Morrison has lent his famed minimal style to a no-frills translucent bar of body soap. The bar is made of translucent glycerin soap that is set in a mould to create four joined sections, which can then be snapped apart and placed at different wash stations around the house.

The recessed lettering, which eventually wears away during use, is also formed during the moulding process. It bears similarity to the logo of cult fashion label Supreme, which has added its simple branding to mundane items like bricks. Along with being stripped back aesthetically, Soap is also made with few materials and is fragrance-free, so that it is “hypoallergenic and very gentle on the skin”.

Morrison is not the only well-known designer to offer an update to the everyday essential washing items. Last year saw British designer Tom Dixon extend his accessories range to include washing-up liquid.
