Soap Tray (base) ONLY - NO SOAP....
The Bodoni Soap Dish was inspired by the Vignelli’s Soap Bubble Chair Mold, which is located in the Vignelli Archive at the Rochester Institute of Technology.
My design makes a connection to the process, scale, and naming conventions that were used to produce the original model, by creating a chair for soap. Following the Vignelli Cannon, I based the overall shape around the letter “O” of the Bodoni typeface, a favorite of the Vignelli’s. The soap is custom produced to fit inside the dish and includes the popular Vignelli quote “Design Is One” on the reverse.
Accepted into the permanent collection of the Vignelli Archive, RIT.
