Three Tubs with Hidden Talents

Three Tubs with Hidden Talents

Bathtubs aren't generally something you think of as high tech but these three tubs are pushing the limits on comfort and design with the use of technology: a wooden tub that looks like marble; a tub with a built in iPod connector; and a skirted tub with panels that connect in seconds. See them after the jump ...

The Sailor free-standing bathtub by Bagno Sasso may look like marble, but is actually hand crafted from precision-cut veneer, cut to the exact millimetre, carefully placed over hand-crafted wood. The warmth of wood will allow you to easily slip into the bath while the marble appearance is clean and sophisticated.

The Vision bathtub from Gruppo Treesse features a minimalist white or black enclosure with see-through plate-glass panels on either side. Built-in are a headrest, hydro-massage, radio and audio jack for an iPod. An option for adjusting the solution in the tub with the addition of saline and essential oil, similar to those used in a real spa, to recreate the experience of a spa.

These "Easy Click" bathtub panels by Duravit turn a traditional bathtub into a modern piece of furniture. The innovative, easy-to-install panels are available for select Duravit tubs and can be removed easily for servicing or to change your look.
