Bathrooms have become more than just a space to wash up in, it's become a peaceful retreat for some. Unfortunately, not all bathtubs are comfortable. But here's something worth checking out - the armchair bathtub.
Dutch designer Thomas Linssen of Studio Thol regarded the products in the bathroom as if they were objects in the living room. He began by making a bathtub inspired by an armchair.
Constructed out of American White Oak, the wooden frame of the chair acts as the mould from which the bathtub was created. The tub is made from a composite of polyester and marble.
According to Linssen: “For this project I took the frame of a chair, designed with comfort and posture in mind, and let it evolve into a bathtub. The base of the bath is defined by its oak-wood ‘skeleton’, the composite tub slightly puffs up between the wooden beams, pushed into this shape naturally through water pressure.”
