The idea is just as beautiful as the execution. You won’t find this modern bathtub in the interior design magazines just yet – LIXIL unveiled the concept of A New Desire for Milan Design Week 2012.
The gorgeous curves and unique construction give form to the feeling of boundless comfort provided by a cushion of foam lather, which runs over the edges of the concept piece. A foam generator pumps air through hot water, creating a “cap” of suds to cradle the body in rest. It’s a home spa without the steam or the appointments.
The design pictured here is just the concept, by Kenya Hara, though the production models are just as beautiful and much more functional. Special rubber and padding make the real tub soft to the touch.
What do you think? Does A New Desire make you crave a bubbly bath?
