Rush'ower, designed by Raquel Martins, is a shower curtain
screen-printed with heat sensitive ink. The curtain reacts to the time
spent in the shower with the tap running and over time the surface
pattern changes alerting the user that they are consuming too much
Rush'ower was one of the prototypes
displayed during London Design Week 2007 at 'Slow Water' an exhibition
by Platform 10, a group of fourteen Design Products students at the
Royal College of Art.
'Slow Water' set out to explore how products could
change the way users behave to conserve water or reduce consumption. The
exhibition included prototypes for alternative products exploring water
awareness, domestic rain water management, water bill sharing and the
future of showers.
