Choose Your Element with Dornbracht and Sieger Design

Modern-sink If you’ve a yen for performing your daily bathing ritual in the loving embrace of wondrous nature, try it for a day or two (or a week, if you’re the intrepid type). You’ll soon discover that the idea of being caressed by random falling water while the morning air nips at your bare skin is not all it’s cracked up to be. Besides, the season for outdoor bathing is nigh on over—unless you live in the Caribbean, perhaps. But failing that—and mindful of a realistic re-appraisal of the notion—how much better to indulge in facsimiles of same, albeit in a controlled and heated environment. Just so, The Elemental Spa collection of Bathroom Fittings by Sieger Design for Dornbracht distills the best of cleansing au natural into a tempting trio of water delivery devices.

KOS’ Shower Cabins Invite Bliss in the Bath

KOS-bath Italian bathroom manufacturer KOS would seem to enjoy the idea of a universal narrative for the bathroom experience. How else to explain the opening image on their homepage—looking out from a rain spattered windshield onto a vast expanse of river, over-layed text reading, “An original point of view. A story about Design, Water, Life, and People”—or the succeeding montage, which would seem to imply the bath-style of a happy threesome, or, at the least, an extremely close family. Speculation of lifestyle choice aside, KOS is known the world over for their sublimely inviting tubs, basins, mini pools, and showers, and especially so for the A&D coup of the “Shower Cabin.”

Get into my modern bed

Platform+bed I never appreciated my BB days (Before Baby) -- the days when I could stay in bed all day.

How glorious it sounds to simply camp out in bed -- grab your computer, iPod, and super-sized latte and be an island.

See my modern island for one (or two)

Bouroullec's in the Bathroom - New from Axor

AXOR BOUROULLEC from Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec on Vimeo.

A few years ago, Axor, the designer brand of Hansgrohe, asked the Bouroullec brothers to work on a collection for the bathroom. Their project was to create solutions for a large variety of situations, spaces and habitats. The result is a comprehensive collection of 85 items including different sorts of basins, mixers and solutions for the bathtub and the shower areas that can be arranged freely according to one’s needs. It debuted last month in Paris.

WellWell, a New Modern Outdor Shower


Introducing WellWell by TradeWinds, a modern outdoor shower inspired by wells, WellWell features water that shoots upward from ground level.

WellWell is made out of robinia wood and aluminium, a minimalist design piece with a small footprint.

A tap that can be operated with bare feet regulates the height of the water jets and the shower easily connects to the garden hose using a supplied connector. It requires minimum water pressure (2kg) for use.

It's good looking and easy to use, but minus the foot operated water jets, much like the average sprinkler, don't you think?

More modern outdoor showers and spas...
