Extremely strong and light, carbon fiber is used in many applications, including aerospace and automotive parts, sporting goods, and structural engineering works. So we were struck when we spotted these sculptural bathtubs made from the material. Elegant, beautiful, and strong, the Vessel Series by Splinter Works brings the relaxing experience of lounging in a hammock to the everyday cleansing ritual.
Splinter Works’ futuristic Vessel Series includes a freestanding bathtub and one that is suspended from the wall. The line also includes a smaller basin, made from reinforced polymer as well. The bath is filled using a standing floor tap, and the wastewater is released through the base into a floor drain.
The sculptural designs are insulated beneath the carbon fiber layers, meaning that the water stays hot for longer. Each model can be tailored according to worldwide customers’ needs, offering people their own unique sanctuary. And if what you fancy is to share the experience, there is plenty of room for two.
