Arctic expedition

Arctic Soap Dispensor B-ATSOAP

The bleeding effect of the watery, icy tones in Cox & Cox’s newest set of bathroom accessories belies the inspiration behind the design, but the process of making the Arctic range is pretty adventurous. From soap dispensers (right) to toothbrush holders and dishes, each ceramic piece has been carefully hand-dipped in a grey-blue glaze, calling to mind glaciers and the North Pole’s frozen beauty. Soap dispenser, £27.
