IDEA International, under their in-house design brand Idea Label, will release Bloccon, a  colorful and compact watering can next month.

A portmanteau of the words “block” and “icon,” Bloccon was actually a runner-up in their id design awards. Although, in the end, it lost out, a review of the entries triggered a renewed interest in the design, which will hit stores on May 6th and retail for 945 yen.

I love the idea of a rectangular shaped watering can. Although difficult to clean, it would probably fit right into a book shelf!
