Going for a lab look in the bathroom? The Buoy soap dispenser will certainly help. They're available in six different colors at $35 a pop. Designed by Diez for German manufacturer Authentics, the dispensers are drip-proof. Authentics explains it all after the jump:

By application of pressure on to the bottle neck from above, the rubber base contracts inwards. An excess of pressure forces the soap outwards via a curved tube. Membrane valves prevent the fluid returning to the bottle and the tube remains full to the top. As the tube is tapered at the end, the liquid soap does not drip out after use. The pump bottle and tube are made of transparent sturdy polycarbonate which allows a clear view into the inside of the product. The liquid soap so becomes part of the design itself.
