My latest addition to my wish list/dream product is the The KOS Faraway Pool, the indoor bathtub (or indoor mini pool) for KOS by designers Ludovica + Roberto Palomba.
First unveiled at ISH 2009, Frankfurt, the sunken tub is part of the FARAWAY collection and resembles a swimming pool with its illuminated stairs and overspill collector.
The Faraway/ Pool sunken mini-pool is level with the floor:
The steps to lower oneself into the pool become sources of illumination:
the ground-level fissure for the collection of water doubles the pool’s outline:
and the blower placed under the steps ripples the surface of the water over the entire length of the pool:
Width 2606 mm
Height 1000 mm
Length 4558 mm
Designed for KOS by Ludovica and Roberto Palomba
About the designers:
Italian architects and designers Roberto and Ludovica Palomba are prime representatives of the trend to upgrade the bathroom to the status of living space in its own right. Their designs for leading bath makers such as Kos, Ceramica Flaminia and Laufen unite sculptural qualities with a knowledge of the materials and a manifest flair for the unconventional.
Price available upon request. (Kos italia was purchased by Zucchetti in 2007)
