Some may think the shower's basic design can't be improved upon. There are at least two companies that disagree, marketing extreme conceptual showers that challenge the way we bathe. Would you try them out? See more about the Loop and the Horizontal after the jump.
I'm no stranger to eccentric bathrooms, but I've never seen anything like these. The Loop, by Italian company Idiha, is a ceramic enclosure with a main overhead shower and jets along the sides that take aim at the upper and lower body. Suitable for indoor or outdoor use, it looks like it would fit in at an ultra modern island resort.
The Horizontal is for those days when you fall asleep during your morning routine. Created by Dornbracht, this shower has you lounge on a slab of stone as overhead jets of varied temperature and pressure clean you with no effort needed on your part. There's even a video of it in action. Lazy? Erotic? Just plain silly? What do you think?
