Last days I was writing about baths . To continue my about bathrooms I have read about the Sensamare Komplettbad from Hoesch. This bathroom looks absolutely fabulous!
Vostok Bathroom Design with USSR Style by Yar Rassadin | Modern Industrial Design and Future Technology - TuvieVostok bathroom design from ROCA competition. Anything that comes out of the Yar Rassadin’s design idea of bathroom accessories will go back to the pre USSR era. The design overall gives a feeling of nostalgia as the design looks more like the USSR spaceships, which by the designer’s own confession is a tribute to their cosmic style.
Here's an interesting concept from luxury German bath fixture company Kaldewei — their new Relax Lounger is a series of 3 double-panel folding padded boards designed specifically for their Conoduo tub. The panels can be used individually or all at once to transform your tub. Use a single panel as a shelf while lying in the bath , or use all three as a bench or mattress to recline on...

Portable bathrooms do not have a reputation for luxury – shower, scale and fan? Forget it. Until now, that is. Somewhere between a mobile go-anywhere bare-bones restroom and a high-end built-in modern washroom design, these bathroom modules are intended to slot into small available spaces in houses, condos or apartments and attach themselves with minimal construction work. Like so many good designs, this idea by Fernando Silva has merit precisely because it is situated between extremes – no one wants a no-plumbing facility in their living space but likewise not everyone can or wishes to invest in a full interior remodel required to install an entire series of requisite bathroom fixtures. This middle-of-the-road solution saves space, time and cost all at once.
They say ‘less is more’ … but with this multifunctional bathroom layout there is more truth to that statement than meets the eye. It looks modern, minimalist, devoid of decoration and free of furniture – but there is much that (literally) lies below the surface of this outwardly simple design idea. When fully closed, the space serves as a recreation room or free-standing shower space with water that sprays from the ceiling. When opened up, the floor becomes a set of benches around a spa-worthy sunken bathtub with all of the extras. All the while, a series of flat screens provides variable entertainment depending upon the activities taking place within the space. While still a visionary concept and not a concrete reality, this is how designer Michal Mitek sees the future of bathrooms ten years down the road – and really, there is nothing about this that is not already possible to build.
Some apartment bathrooms are just not big enough to fit a full- or even half-size tub, unless one considers the extra space already required for standing and walking. This clever flip-down solution makes room for lying down in the bath, but retracts when not in use.
Fold-out Faucet You can mistake the Flat-Fold to be a high-tech mirror thang in the bathroom or even a cabinet; but a faucet…most definitely not!
