OVA / Ergonomic adapted bath tub


The Form of the objects is inspired from egg.
The egg possesses a natural oval pleasant form.

It is an indication of fertility, new life and life energy.
As the egg protects the inside, the bath objects should give for the user a secure and well-being feeling.

By the shaping of the bath tub sides the neck and head area are adapted ergonomically. Therefore one lies very comfortably in the tub.

Our idea of the objects is to create a harmonious and pleasant atmosphere and well-being feeling, harmony and peace.
