Immersion, 2017 - Neri & Hu
Observing the growing density of cities across the globe, Neri&Hu’s design addresses the increasingly confined living spaces that urban dwellers are confronted with. The Immersion bathtub, inspired by traditional timber bathing vessels used in Japan and China, is deeper than a standard tub and occupies a smaller footprint.
Similar to an onsen hot spring experience, the posture of bathing is more upright rather than reclined, but the added depth allows a full immersion of the entire body for deep relaxation, while also enjoying the steam as it rises off the water surface. The resulting design features minimal lines, maintains elegant proportions and offers a unique and luxurious bathing experience.
The bathtub is made in white Cristalplant® biobased or two tone (exterior in dark grey RAL7021 or light grey RAL7044). Immersion is equipped with a slatted seat (compulsory insertion) available in Iroko wood or in the same tub material.
Immersion won the EDIDA 2018, EDIDA China 2017 and the NYCxDESIGN Award 2017 in the “Bath” category.
