Vessel Hammock Bathtub by Splinter Works

Vessel is a hammock like bathtub by Splinter Works


Splinter Works has always impressed us with their extraordinary products and this time they continue to do the same with their carbon fiber bathtub. A hammock inspired the UK based studio to create the magnificent bathtub dubbed as Vessel. No ordinary folk would have otherwise even thought of combining the two barely related things- a hammock and a bathtub. But the designers of this studio thought out of the box and designed the Vessel  that is certainly built to give an entirely different and unique bathing experience to the user. This iconic bathtub will change the way a person takes this everyday normal activity of bathing into a more stylish experience.

This suspended bathtub appears just like a hammock filled with water where the user is literally elevated off the ground. High tech materials such as carbon fiber that is generally used in auto sport and aerospace industries, is the principal element implied to create the vessel because of its inherent strength and ability to form curves. To improve the aesthetics of this luxurious bathtub, stainless steel brackets and gold leaf are also added.

To fill the tub with water, a floor standing tap is employed and the waste water is drained through the base and in case such wet floor setting is absent, a downpipe drain can be installed. The carbon fiber covers a foam core that allows the hot water inside the tub to remain warm for a longer time. The vessel would thus probably want you to spend a long time bathing. The bathtub is pretty much longer than a usual bath tub. This ultra-luxurious bathtub is available in a limited edition of only 12 units in various colors such as  red, blue, yellow, pink, bronze and pure silver.
