Bathtub = Thinner than your iPad


Yes. If you look hard enough on the internet, you’ll find the absurd. Now that’s not necessarily bad. Sometimes you’ll be surprised at how far you can go to redesign something you thought was done and over with. The Xtend is a portable bathtub. Yes. For people who want a luxurious bath experience while outdoors, the Xtend is a meager 7kgs heavy strip of metal that’s just 8.5mm. That’s 1mm thinner than your iPad. Never thought you could have a razor-thin bathtub, did you?

The Xtend, through clever design, opens up from a flat sheet into a full bathtub frame with a washable cloth lining on the inside. The legs, frame, cloth drapery, and even the attached faucet come together in a sleek (doesn’t get sleeker!) frame that you can carry anywhere. Just make sure you’ve got a water connection!

The Xtend is a recipient of the Red Dot Best of the Best award for the year 2015, and truly so, given its ingenious design and even more innovative design brief!
