There are some great products on the market and then there’s the exceptionally innovative like the range produced by simplehuman. More than just a tried and tested collection, the designers and engineers behind one of Howards best selling brands create products that not only withstand everyday life, they make everyday life easier.

As a philosophy, simplehuman believe that day-to-day life essentially provides one big research and development lab. Their best ideas begin in the daily routine and evolve into products through a creative mixture of technology, engineering and intelligent people; and their development process never ends. They’re always reinventing and they never stop testing and searching for ways to make life easier and more efficient. Take the soap pump for instance…

Hands up if, after manually pumping a regular soap dispenser, you’ve ever had the contents launch across your sink? Perhaps you can relate to having excess soap drip down the exterior of the dispenser. simplehuman believe that day-to-day life has room for improvement and creating a faster cleaner, hands free Sensor Pump is a prime example. Their clever Sensor Pump catch cry is “getting clean, shouldn’t be messy” so they engineered a range of easy to refill, touch free sensor pumps each containing a non-drip valve. Seamlessly designed these pumps are an easy and automatic way to ensure no germs are spread to the next user (promoting a healthy and hygienic environment). Genius.

When it comes to their bins, simplehuman believe good products should be built to last so they put their entire range of step bins through a durability test. The result? Proven hardwearing, their bins are designed to withstand 150,000 ‘steps’ – that’s 20 steps a day for over 20 years. You see the pedal runs all the way to the back of the bin and pivots near the centre (like a see-saw) enabling the entire platform to take the weight for a smooth, steady action.  It’s little wonder that most of the bins have a 10-year warranty. What’s more they offer a soft close lid. The patented lid shox air technology allows the lid to open easily but provides resistance as the lid closes, easing it down gently and quietly. When designing the range, the simplehuman team also took into consideration clean and tidy waste. While the exterior is designed with a fingerprint-proof finish, the inside of the bin is created for extra-thick, double-seamed simplehuman bin liners that perfectly fit and stay neatly hidden.

Then there’s their range of cabinet organisers. With a 5-year warranty, their line of durable, streamlined cabinet organisers stand testament to their pledge of only using the best materials and solid engineering so their products will last for years. Constructed from heavy gauge steel, they glide on smooth pre-aligned commercial-grade ball bearing tracks and are perfect for storing pantry items (they include a removable drip guard that protect your cabinets from messy spills and leaks) as well as grouping bulky items like pots and pans. Seriously easy to use, they, much like the rest of the range, have been designed with everyday life well and truly in the forefront of the designers and engineers mind.

Dish racks are also a simplehuman specialty. Their dish rack range includes models with built in draining trays and movable spouts so you can position them to fit your space. You can reliably expect them to be made from sturdy, corrosion-resistant materials that won’t rust or discolour and are easy to clean.

You only need to take a quick look at the list of awards the simplehuman team has received to see these guys really are in the upper echelons when it comes to designing durable, ready-for-anything products. From Red Dot Design Awards to International Design Excellence Awards, European Consumer Choice Awards to Housewares Innovation Awards (and beyond), simplehuman are recognised and applauded leaders in design and innovation. Howards are proud to stock a large range of simplehuman products including garbage bins, dish racks, soap dispensers and kitchen & bathroom tools.
