Elastigenic / Bathroom


Elastigenic is a visionary bathroom concept. The idea is based on a waterproof super-elastic material that covers the entire surface of the room. All the appliances are shaped in real time by retractable mechanical structures hidden underneath the material. The bathroom can be very easily customized to meet user needs. Thanks to the continuous material applied to the surface, there are no corners left for bacteria to grow. It is also more efficient in the terms of water usage. When the room is cleaned, all the appliances are retracted so that there are only flat surfaces to wash down. Video presentation available at https://vimeo.com/67993143

An overall bathroom concept that is fascinating. The different objects that are formed from out of the floor make a bathroom landscape that reminds us of nature. The space that the individual objects take up can be changed completely at any time.
