LEO SPONGE / Story
Connie Hüsser's smiley sponges are an everyday household essential that add a playful pop of colour to the kitchen. Handcrafted in Turkey, all the Leo sponges have slightly different faces, which give each one an individual quality. Use these colourful sponges to make washing up a little less ordinary or just as fun decorative objects to brighten up a room. Made from durable polyester, Leo is available in a variety of colours and unique designs.

The exhibition was exhibited at Ecal in Lausanne, Design Miami in Basel and the Biennale Interieur in Kortrijk. She was awarded the Swiss Grand Award for Design in 2019. For HAY, Connie has designed the colourful smiley sponge series Leo.
