Re-Imagined Bath Accessories by Wieki Somers

New England born and bred as we are, we can't help our affection for all things nautical, which includes Dutch designer Wieki Somers' boat-shaped bathtub that we saw last summer at the Victoria & Albert Museum's Telling Tales exhibition. When we took a look at her portfolio we saw that her work includes several other bathroom staples that she has creatively re-imagined.

IMAGE 1: The Bathboat reverses the traditional positions of the boat and the water, by creating a boat that holds water instead of the other way around.

IMAGE 2: In this project called, Come Clean, porcelain sculptures are embedded within soap. As the soap is washed away, the porcelain is revealed.

IMAGE 3: Frozen Bath again uses the idea of boat as bathtub, this time as an inflatable boat made of porcelain.

IMAGE 4: These perfume bottles are designed to look like a feather embedded in amber with the feather doubling as an applicator to brush on the scent.
