pretty funky pillboxes

This makes taking pill so much more interesting. By Céline Forestier.

If remembering to take all those pills weren’t enough of a chore, plastic medicine bottles are eyesores no matter where they’re placed. Céline Forestier, a recent grad of Ecole Supérieure d’Art et Design Sant-Etienne , offers an ingenious solution: Seven sculptural pillboxes (one for every day of the week) that keep medicine concealed and organized within a piece of art.

Maybe the most subtle part is that every face of each pillbox is varied, making it easier to have a tactile and visual sense of whether you took your meds (as opposed to typical plastic cases, which are confusing because of their monotonous design). And in addition, elevating the pill box into something worthy of a coffee table object d'art might serve as a subtle daily reminder.
