HYDRA Outdoor Refreshment / Duschkonzept

HYDRA Outdoor Refreshment
HYDRA Outdoor Refreshment

Hydra is a publicly accessible mist shower for spontaneous invigoration. The base is made of rotomoulded plastic and equipped with a changeable platform made of various materials.

By stepping on it, the shower is activated. The shower head emerges from the aluminium telescope segments being pushed out by water pressure. It refreshes the body screwing up around the user . It minimize the temperature shock (cold running water on a hot skin) by splashing only a small amount of water and going from the bottom to the upper more fragile parts of body. And why also using just a cloud of tiny drops? It is less water consumption possible.
