If you’ve ever had to endure the undesirable task of washing a dog, you will be familiar with the inevitable struggle that occurs each time. However, for some individuals it also brings with it significant levels of physical discomfort and pain that is caused by bending down for prolonged periods of time. This is the exact issue that designer, Seung Hyo Lee, identified, and the solution came in the form of Bath Cradle.
Bath Cradle essentially creates a bathtub, within a bathtub; the dog-specific bathtub is elevated slightly to reduce the distance that the user has to reach down, while also providing a comfortable place for the dog to sit.
The design also includes a second feature, a seat just for the user! Just like the doggy-bathtub, it too spans the width of the bath and rests on the top. It provides a comfortable place for the user to sit as it takes the strain off their legs.
