Soft Tub / bathtub

Soft Tub
Soft Tub

Most of the bathtubs nowadays are made of porcelain materials, which may not be so comfortable to lie on for those with disease, and the slippery base causes accidents sometimes.
Soft Tub is designed to solve this problem with its soft memorial base. As you step into the tub, the base would sink gently as if you’re stepping on the beach. After you lie down, the base would transform its shape to perfectly fit your figure, which is cozier to lie on. Moreover, the soft base saves water remarkably.
