Struck by the synergy between the shapes of two compelling symbols of relaxation, a hammock and a bath tub, Splinter Works was inspired to develop a piece that would provide the ultimate vehicle for total escapism. By elevating the experience of bathing into a suspended sculpture, the bathroom has been reinvented as a contemplative sanctuary for artful relaxation. Designed for use in a wet room, Vessel is suspended from the walls and does not touch the floor. It is fixed with stainless steel brackets that can be covered over, or left revealed.
The bath is filled using a floor standing tap and the waste water released through the base into a floor drain. Vessel is made from carbon fiber which is utilized for its inherent strength and ability to be formed into complex curves. Beneath the layers of carbon fiber lies a foam core, which insulates the tub, meaning the bath stays hot for considerably longer than normal. Pictured here in black, it also available in red, blue, yellow, pink, bronze and pure silver.
