The Ultimate Vehicle for Total Escapism -Vessel by Splinter Works

We don’t know what is your definition for ultimate stylish relaxation, but we can show you how it looks like according to Splinter Works‘s vision. It’s called “Vessel”,  a name that might not stir your interest or your imagination, but if you take a look to the following pictures, they will definitely do. Reinterpreting the bathroom as a contemplative sanctuary for artful leisure, these talented designers created a stunning bathtub that will literally elevate the experience of bathing, whilst enhance your bathroom environment.

Unlike anything we’ve seen before in a bathroom, this design is truly something unique and special. A suspended sculptural piece that promises both the cool experience of kicking-back in a hammock and the comfort of soaking in a hot bath.


Like other ambitious project signed by Splinter Works, Vessel is provoking, aesthetically beguiling, intelligently designed and a delight to use. The shapes of two compelling symbols of relaxation, a hammock and a bathtub, were ingeniously combined to achieve a functional bathtub for everyday use. Designed for use in a wet room, it’s 2.7m long and is made from carbon fibre due to its properties of turning into complex curves. The tub is insulated with a foam beneath the layers of carbon fibre, which means you can enjoy the hot bath longer than usually.

Vessel’s hammock-like shape doesn’t touch the floor, being  fixed to walls with stainless steel brackets that can be covered over, or left revealed.  The bath is filled using a floor standing tap and the waste water released through the base into a floor drain. A downpipe drain can also be installed if a wet room setting is not possible. Its minimalist and artistic design with clean lines and curvaceous shape is really engaging and inspiring giving you the possibility to customised it by choosing other sizes, and personalized it through a variaty of bold colors: red, blue, yellow, pink, bronze and pure silver.
