“We aim to look at objects that we use daily with a new perspective,” claims upcoming Korean consumer electronics and appliance company, Usetool Company, whose slogan is “think hard, design better”. The lifestyle brand was created in collaboration with Ventures Lab and Jiyoun Kim Studio in 2018 and is making its IFA debut with the Usetool Toothbrush.
An electric or manual toothbrush, steriliser, sonic wave vibrator and charger in one, the Usetool dental kit boasts a minimalist, modular high-des ign aesthetic. The stand-out product is also sustainable, with users able to return the recyclable toothbrush to the manufacturer and receive a new one in return.
Already the winner of an IF Design Award in 2018, the electric toothbrush is only now coming to market and is being initially pitched to European consumers with a taste for stylish, hygienic and quality dental care for around €80.
