Design an acrylic bathtub, to be installed and positioned in different contexts.
The study began from imagining the filling up of an elastic acrylic
sheet with water creating a curved surface which would guarantee
comfort, cleanliness, and structural stability. We began work thinking of the product as a system, and therefore considering the adaptability of a product into mutiple realities. The intention was also to make the bath appear as it it was a single monolithic block similar to resin bathtubs (eg. Corian / Cristalplant), rather than 2 acrylic shells.
For the form, we experimented with the pouring of water on an elastic plane. By contrast we placed these soft shells within a rigid frame, which allows multiple types of installation in the room (corner / angle / centre). The wire frame structure can be closed by panels, to which new accessories can be assembled, such as shelves, towel sack and towel bars. For the freestanding version, we have added legs to give a more natural presence as if it is a piece of furniture.
