About this project
*XUBE is not yet officially TSA-approved for carry-on. Please see our FAQ/Update #3 for more information.
XUBE offers a sleek, beautiful solution for portable toiletries - simply fill with your chosen products, then bring it anywhere to unroll and mount on any smooth wall. And when it’s time to go, roll it back up for easy packing.
No More Squats
We believe that showertime is sacred; the time to be alone with your thoughts. But just when you’re about to have eureka moment, you have to reach for the shampoo on the floor. Maybe you power-squat, or put one knee on the floor (ew) - but whatever your choice of acrobatics, that showerthought is gone now.
We want to dive into our adventures full-speed, without the drag of travel inconveniences. XUBE gives you the comfort of having all your trusted products at your fingertips (ironically hands-free), anywhere, effortlessly.
Your Personal Dispenser - Anywhere!
Can’t fit all your bottles on that tiny soap ledge? Never put them on the floor again. XUBE lets you mount your soap on any smooth wall, and take it right off afterwards. Microsuction is reusable, never loses its cling, and leaves no residue. Just wash and dry, and it’s good as new.
Cut The Clutter
XUBE keeps all your essentials together; it holds what you need, and not a touch more. Now you can bring everything you need from locker to shower, no more balancing acts.
XUBE is Versatile
Fill XUBE with whatever you want - Face wash, shampoo, conditioner, body soap, etc. Need to use specific brand of shampoo? Prefer to use one bottle for lotion instead? You just do you; let XUBE do the rest.
Just Roll and Go
Make packing easier. Say goodbye to stuffing oddly-shaped bottles into a toiletry bag. XUBE tessellates with itself, and then with everything else. Its compact cuboidal shape makes it stackable and packable.
Save the Environment
Now you can stop buying tons of travel-sized versions of your shampoos, and replace your disposable bottles with a refillable dispenser.
Made of silicone
● XUBE is made of BPA silicone, so it’s 100% waterproof, hygienic, and easy to clean.
Process and Inspiration
We went through many, many rounds of ideation, prototyping and variations. Pencils were sharpened. All-nighters and doritos were had. We pondered our own travel ideals and were inspired by the form of mountain peaks. Taking this organic starting point, we abstracted it into a concept that was geometrically satisfying. The decision to work with silicone proved challenging, and we spent many weeks 3D-modelling through iterations to find the right balance between designing for manufacturing considerations, functionality, and aesthetic based on feedback from our community. No detail was left unscrutinized!
We believe that in life’s great adventures, there is joy to be found in the little things too. And nothing beats the simple, everyday joy of having streamlined, beautiful products that just work.
Help us make XUBE a reality, and together we can change the way we live, starting with the essentials.
Risks and challenges
We are a team of designers that believe in delivering beautifully functional, quality products, and are committed to ensuring that backers are satisfied with what they receive. We have produced a working prototype, and are working towards final product refinement and volume production as soon as our project gets funded.
Over the last few months, we have worked closely with our manufacturers to ensure that everything runs smoothly. We will continue to maintain clear communication and conduct quality checks with them.
We are a small team, but we will try our very best to deliver in a timely manner! A ton of sweat and tears went into this project, and we would hate to see it fail. We're almost there, the only thing we need is your support. Manufacturing with silicone and plastic is an arduous process, but we will try our best! In the event of unforeseen circumstances, we will be transparent with you and keep you updated on the steps we will take to manage everything.
We promise to keep everyone closely updated as we bring our dream to life! Thank you so much for your support.
Suds and love,
