BathBoat! Inverted boat turned into bathtub. Brilliant! This 2005 piece by the dutch designer, Wieki Somers, is the centerpiece of the bathroom featured in today’s NYTimes Style Magazine, “Design is the New Art … For the cutting-edge design dealers Didier and Clemence Krzentowski, home mixes business and pleasure.” which Rugenius posted to .org… and i had to find out more. So more images below for all!
Now about that boat. The concept is so ironic and beautiful. After all, traditionally speaking, if your boat is filling with water, not exactly time to be lounging around, no? Somer’s actually states that “Floating on the water and bathing in the water deal with so much similar feelings and elements that they are combined in one installation. By turning a small boat inside out it becomes a bath.” How poetic? Seriously, gorgeous, amusing pictures below. Oh, and also, love how she sees the bath tub “feet” as something reminiscent of a stand for dry docking your boat.
