Archimedes / bath tub


The bathtub in which comfortably 2 persons find place, is composed of an body of steel and enamel that includes an wide waterfall and all control elements. Thus makes additional faucets superfluous. Natural river pebbles like pillows in different dimensions, are placed in the tub and enable the user to generate his personal lying position. The pillows are positioned with magnets in the tub. The capacity of the tub is adapted by the amount of pillows placed under water to the number of persons using the tub. Hence the water consumption is held low, even if only one person uses the tub.
