“hang & glide” is a flexible interior concept for core bathroom elements, which are placed along a horizontal rail-type profile for greater mobility. The elements are as follows: A universal seat that co-functions as a raised seat over the toilet. A temporary, collapsible, slatted shower cubicle. A washbasin with movable tap and drain. And an inflatable hip bath. Together, these elements create an open system that can be adapted to fit individual needs. This design addresses all target groups (young and old, short and tall, handicapped and non-handicapped) and also allows someone recovering from a medical illness the option of removing or modifying specific functions.
