Shower Power

Shower Power

Showering is supposed to be a catharsis of the day and of our daily environmental exposure. The last thing we should be dirtying up is our conscience with wasteful habits like using up way too much life-giving water. The “Sshower” for Roca was conceived by designer Marco Antonio Esquiró San Román for that very reason. With built in sensors that can automatically detect when you are actually under the shower head, this shower will turn of the stream and replace it with steam until you are ready to rinse off.

Water-saving Body Wash

Water-saving Body Wash

The Multifunctional Bathtub has an exclusive tilt function that allows you to save water when you take a soak. Depending upon how you tilt and use the tub, you could end up saving 80% of water for foot bath, 60% of water for half-body and 40% for full-body bath. Sounds like an interesting and fun idea and I really hope it works! Roca, are you listening?

Bathroom Water Sculptures

Bathroom Water Sculptures

The Palomba Collection is a synthesis of organic and natural forms inspired by coastal inlets and cliffs where one can observe the waters effect on the rock formations. The collection translates this into a bathtub, 8 available washbasins, and other accessories that all appear perfectly sculpted and polished by water. In pure, bright white, fine fire-clay, the series (together or separate) is sure to be enduring.

Future Glowing Sinks

Future Glowing Sinks

Designer Masahiro Minami’s “Renca” and “Suirin” washbowls for the SOUHOUGAMA line are the first of their kind, composed of translucent ceramic made from special Japanese clay. The artistic patterns of each are highlighted by internal LED light that passes through the milky material, creating a warm diffused glow and surprising contrast to the water feature.

Mirror Mirror, I’m Invisible!

Mirror Mirror, I’m Invisible!

One of the best things about the Ray Mirror is its invisible sliding mechanism. The fact that two small compartments for your most important cosmetics and toiletries are hiding behind the façade is astonishing. Thanks to its slim appearance it is also suitable for small bathrooms. I think they mean my bathroom!

Shower Anywhere from the Comfort of Home!

Shower Anywhere from the Comfort of Home!

There’s nothing quite like an outdoor shower, but it’s mostly reserved for those with the space and privacy. As much as our neighbors might appreciate a show, for those of us who live in urban spaces, it’s something we can only dream of! Well here’s the next best thing – the Spaces OLED shower brings the outside in with a 180-degree, wrap-around screen that will fulfill the user’s fantasy, putting them in any setting they choose… jungle, beach, waterfall, you get the idea!

Bathtub Convenience

Bathtub Convenience

The Elevated Bathtub is a very thoughtful bathing experience for those who suffer from limited mobility. I have a parent who has both their knees replaced and suffers from sever arthritis, so getting in or out of a bathtub is kinda risky. This unique bathtub allows the user to step into the bath area on a flat base without any hindrance. Split into two main parts, the tub enclosure can be lifted; and the flat base with a showerhead pillar doubles up as a lifting rail for the tub enclosure.

Unmonitored Bathtub

Unmonitored Bathtub

The Water Lock is an automatic water meter and a locking device for use on bathtub taps. What you need to do is simply set the desired volume of water for the bath and let the bathtub fill up unmonitored. You generally know how much water you would like to fill in for your bath, so after the set amount has been filled, the flow automatically stops. So you end up avoiding overspill, wastages and have the freedom to do other stuff while you run up your bath water.

Silicone Bathroom Goodies

Silicone Bathroom Goodies

Oh snap, Kontextu’r and designer Josh Owen came up with bathroom accessories that are fun while err’ing on the side of sophistication. Fantastic job because I want all of it. The Hanging Line consists of a wall-mountable towel/magazine holder, a toilet paper roll holder and specially designed hooks – all made from flexible and durable silicone.  The toilet paper holder uses a magnetic catch to quickly change rolls. I’m less excited about the mirrors but as a stand-a-lone piece, they could transform a bathroom from drab to hella fab.

Sinking Bath

Sinking Bath

Sink into the perfect bathtub, sink into The Comfort. Designed with a unique W cross-sectional form, the bathtub is designed ergonomically contoured to the human body. Even if you drift off into sleep, the bathtub design ensures you don’t accidentally slump into the water. A good thing about the form is that it features two distinct, one that allows babies to bathe safely without the need of filling the bathtub to full capacity.

Clogged Free Forever!

Clogged Free Forever!

Hands up all those who have experienced clogged toilet bowls! Armed with a plunger I too have had to unclog the toilet and I know it’s a stinky job. This is why I really appreciate this PUSHit Toilet Seat Design! The seat itself acts like plunger and helps unclog the bowl. Totally Awesome!

The Snake Shower

The Snake Shower

The Aqueous is quite an innovative design that exudes a fluid form while retaining functionality. It features a unique malleable disk that allows you to control the flow of water; pushing down regulates pressure, pushing right brings hot water, and left brings cold. As the designer explains, “Aqueous’ singular shape creates a memorable silhouette.”
