SHINE / Shower


mood shower
consists of:
-round light source with water supply in its center
-water bowl made of glass -(size 1mx1m) with small openings
-4 stainless steel rods connect glass bowl with ceiling
-remote control with touchpad operates light colour and water temperature

remote control can be stored wherever a magnet is attached to the wall
(i.e. next to the door)

-water flows into bowl, creates a build up until the rising surface reaches enough outer openings
→ balance between inflowing and outflowing water
-light shining on water generates optical „underwater“ illusion in shower area
different moods depending on light colour

This design sets the stage for water in motion – emotions are created by light. A really intelligent combination! Light is projected through the water and fills the entire room: a room-filling water experience!
