we design everyday tools to help people become more efficient at home
Day-to-day life has room for improvement. That's the basic thinking behind simplehuman. By solving simple, often overlooked problems, we make people more efficient in their daily tasks at home. We call our products tools for efficient living. They’re always simple, functional, and built to last. And we only build products we love to use ourselves.
We can be a bit obsessive. To make our step cans easier to use, we experimented with pedal angles and heights until we found just the right balance and feel. Our sensor pump has the fastest sensor we could find so soap is dispensed into your hands 5x faster than a manual pump. Our dishrack has a uniquely angled tray and adjustable spout so the water drains into the sink and not on your countertop. We test religiously to make sure our products work correctly for years of steady use.
We’re very proud of what we do. We delight in that “This is clever!” moment people have when they use one of our products for the first time, and we love that people can get as excited as we are over tools for efficient living.
