Beautiful design comes in all shapes and sizes, but a bathtub carefully crafted from strips of wood veneer is not something you see everyday. From Israeli designer Tal Engel, this gorgeous bathtub known as Otaku is constructed from this very process by weaving together strips of white ash and maple veneer.
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.
