Your favorite hand soap just got an awesome design upgrade—and for a good reason, too. Today, Method announced a limited edition collection in partnership with the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum as a way to celebrate women in design.
"At Method, we truly view cleaning as an act of creative expression," Connie Chen, Method's Vice President of Brands said in a press release. "Our partnership with Cooper Hewitt is meaningful because, together, we are shining a light on pioneering women in design, whose impressive lives, talent and vision are an inspiration for designers–and the greater creative community–to this day."
The Method x Cooper Hewitt collection features three beautifully-designed bottles in both the brand's gel and foaming hand wash options, with three different coordinating fragrances—each celebrating a different designer: Marguerita Mergentime, Ilonka Karasz, and Barbara White.
Mergentime, a textile designer known for making table linens that featured political slogans and clever conversation starters in the 1930s, inspired the "Island Rain" bottle, which features a striking blue botanical print and a tropical fragrance. Karasz, who illustrated covers for The New Yorker and designed textiles, wallcoverings, and more, inspired a bottle called "Wild Meadow." The scent is a violet-forward floral fragrance, and the bottle is covered in a folk art print that's full of whimsical forest creatures. White—known for her Japanese paper art, designing wallpaper, and developing the technique of glass monoprinting—inspired "Orange Slice," a bottle with a graphic print in citrus-inspired colors and a refreshing orange and lemon scent.
You can purchase the full collection at Target online and in stores, or shop it below. Or, if you're in New York City, you can also head to the Shop Cooper Hewitt museum store to buy—if you do that, all proceeds from your purchase will go towards the museum's mission to "educate, inspire, and empower communities through design." What better cause than that?!
