Innovation and relaxation meet here. Vessel is a hybrid hammock and bathtub by the English studio Splinter Works. Shaped from carbon fiber fabric, the design is strong and curved to a sculptural effect. The interior is crafted from foam, insulating the tub so that the water stays warm. The brackets are made of stainless steel, so that the tub may be suspended wall-to-wall and never touch the floor. Designed for a wet room or a bathroom with a downpipe, the Vessel is not for everyone. But it sure makes for a unique, stress-beating experience if you ever get the chance to try it out. The design comes in a wide range of colors: black, red, blue, yellow, pink, bronze, and silver. Contact the designers to find out how to acquire this gem for a home or resort.
