"Menstrual Hacking"
by sabine7 / September 26, 2008


Andrea Mettler takes on menstrual hacking as a way of defying the taboos of menstruation. By adding an element of luxury to the design of objects that evoke feelings that range from embarrassment to disgust, Mettler created three conceptual projects that can open up discussion of how the topic of menstruation is oft hidden away while referencing boundaries in design. Concept aside, the lipstick holder tampon case, Kosmetik, is an excellent idea, as our society is still waiting for the day when tampons and other such facts of life do not have to be concealed.
