The Showerall, designed by Spanish industrial design graduate Esther Perea-Borobio, is the winner of the annual DesignAge competition at the Royal College of Art. Created with older users in mind, the long-handled shower head can be controlled by the user manoeuvring the handle at waist height. The rubber head rests on the scalp, mixing soap and water to enable the user to wash his or her hair without having to lift their arms. The judges, who included Ken Grange, were unanimous in their decision that the Showerall should win.
