Hammock Bathtub: Suspend Your Disbelief and Take a Bath
July 9, 2013
What could be more relaxing than hanging from a hammock in the shade? Perhaps filling it with water, and luxuriating in a bath within that same relaxing shape from Splinter Works.
A stainless steel tap rises up and hangs over one side to fill the carbon-fiber tub (which itself is suspended from the walls by stainless steel brackets). The bathtub is, in turn, drained through the floor.
Lest you wonder where all the heat goes while you soak, there is a foam core to the carbon fiber shell to provide insulation, keeping the water warm. This layer is somewhat hidden due to the tapering of the tub shell around its edges.
Splinter Works founder Miles Hartwell explains the design: “Struck by the synergy between the shapes of two compelling symbols of relaxation, a hammock and a bath tub, we were inspired to develop a piece that would provide the ultimate vehicle for total escapism.”
