Relax, relax: Vessel by Splinter Works.

Two words could hardly be more synonymous with relaxation than the bath and the hammock. British design studio Splinter Works have combined them with the “Vessel,” an interesting piece that reinterprets the idea of bathroom.

The Vessel is a hammock shaped bath that attaches to the walls of a bathroom. It is made of carbon fibre and is around 2.7m long, but can be custom built. The foam core helps the water stay warm for longer, an important feature when you are likely to fall asleep in the bliss.

It works best when there is a floor drain, and I would also add when the walls are strong enough to take the weight. It is manufactured on request in black, yellow, pink, bronze and silver.
