kengai / concept shower

kengai
kengai

By 2020, almost 60% of the world’s population will live in cities. This urbanization and poor accessibility to nature creates an urgent need for green urban spaces. "Kengai" brings the nature into your bathroom in various ways.
The concept consists of a shower and a personal indoor herb garden. The cascade shower replicates the feel and look of rain or waterfalls as they appear in nature. A herb stand is also part of the bathroom experience. It can be used to grow natural medicinal plants and provides for pleasant smells in the shower. A mood app can capture moments outside your bathroom and project them onto an illuminated glass surface.

An innovative cascading shower. Water flows over the different levels and each level has a different function – a completely new showering experience.
