A shower or a bathtub is the focal point of any bathroom, and if you want to make a statement or an accent, do it with a bathtub or a shower space. If you have some space for a bathtub, you definitely need a unique yet very comfy piece to relax the best way possible. I’ve found a whole bunch of unusual bathtubs that will change your space and make it super cool, ready to see them? Let’s get started!
Bathsphere by designer Alexander Zhukovsky is a glass bubble sphere, suspended in midair. It allows you to create your own mood and unwinding space. You can simulate rain, change the temperature inside the ball, control the humidity, the light, the sounds – and even smells. And it’s large enough for two!
Xtend by Carina Deuschl redefines the ordinary concept of a freestanding bathtub. Made of carbon fiber and cut by using high pressure water jet technology, the bathtub combines design, functional and comfort. Once folded, the construction weighs seven kilograms and becomes only 8.5 millimeters thin. Extended, its padded machine washable fabric inlay provides a distinctively refreshing bathing experience.
Meaning ‘drop’ in Italian, the Goccia bathtub is supported by a large folded rim that resembles a crisp white shirt collar and gives the design a sense of lightness. To create the collection’s smooth surfaces, Maromin has used its hygienic, shock- and stain-resistant gelcoat®, which is a composite material made of finely ground dolomite stone mixed with a synthetic resin.
Kora is cut from one single solid block, carved with a meticulous and fine technique, achieved by digging the stone, firstly with specialized technology and then handcrafted for details and finishes. The tub rests on an iron tripod that supports its volume, giving stability and elegance. Suspended from the floor, despite the strength of the material, the water finds in Kora a new lightness. Marble is free from its weight and floats in the air.
With the style of a precious jewel, the Diamond bathtub, will make a splash in interior design. The exterior of this fanciful piece is presented in fiberglass with a luxurious shade of translucent black with high gloss varnish. The new bathtub also features a highly sculptured body leading to a gold interior.
The Xiuxi Bathtub by Erik Edward Kim is a spa bath and treatment at home has air injection device at the bottom that puts forth bubble bursts of water and friction that causes the anion to open pores of the skin cells. There is infrared light to stimulate cell tissues and enhance blood circulation. The specs include a Whirlpool pump to swirl the water for a pressure massage, speakers for music, mood lighting.
Combining two major symbols of relaxation, a hammock and a tub, Splinter Works have developed a new bathing experience in the form of Vessel. The design is fixed to adjacent walls with stainless steel brackets, so that it hovers above the floor. Measuring 2.7 meters long, Vessel extends longer than the standard bathtub, and its sloping shape offers plenty of room in which to kick-back and escape, perhaps with another. The sculptural piece is made from layers of carbon fibre, with a foam core which insulates the bath longer than normal and can be customized–it can be trimmed up to 20 cm–to allow for flexible installation.
Design studio Desnahemisfera has combined a bathtub and washbasin into the Symbiosis unit. Merging the two bathroom fixtures into an ergonomic form creates a structure that is adapted to the human body. The technologically advanced product has integrated features, such as the ability to control both water temperature and pressure at the touch of a button, while built-in speakers enable one to play music from a mobile phone or device while enjoying a relaxing bath.
Formed over more than 250 million years ago and extracted from the Alps in a Swiss village, the fine-veined appearance of quartzite makes it an aesthetically appealing choice among architects and designers. However, its hard, layered composition renders it difficult to work with and until now few, if any, have used the stone to create bathtubs from a solid block.
