Today, people come in contact with various kinds of ads through TV, the internet, e-mail and cell phones from the moment they wake up in the morning. Such ads distract our attention constantly and consume our energy unnecessarily. As a result, some people in their 20s often go through forgetfulness, while forgetting about something important and even failing to concentrating on their jobs. Some of the main reasons for the modern people’s forgetfulness are their unconditional dependence on digital devices, too much unnecessary information through them and stress. -Problem: Inside each toilet section of the public restroom, users are not intuitively provided with space where they can use as a shelf, so they are more likely to lose their belongings. 1.People put their belongings on the toilet tissue holder. 2.They put them on the water container in the back of a toilet. -Benefit: A shelf is installed on the lock, which is a medium that users can reach while using the toilet. It is located at users’ nearest point of sight, or where it can be most exposed to users’ visual field. As a result, users cannot go out without taking their belongings on the shelf.
