I almost put this one into the Design Roast, but I could actually see this concept catching on in Korea or Japan, where they’re typically willing to pay more for overdesigned versions of simple objects.
Industrial designers Deockeun An, Jaehyung Kim and Cheolwoong Seo conceived of this tape roll, for those who get frustrated trying to find where the tape begins.
Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.
I do believe the concept is flawed–are you meant to coordinate where you tear the tape each time, to ensure it lands on a tooth?–but am always amused to see people tackling mundane and everyday issues like this. It’s not quite as insightful as those highly specific Japanese Halloween costumes, but with a roll of tape, this is the closest we’re gonna get.
