Venus / Shower


Venus is a shower that combines different benefits in a very special design. First of all a rocking porcelain basin makes it very easy to walk in. The user steps on the flat rim to push it to ground level. In its upright position the basin has the save feeling of a normal shower that collects water and builds a save cocoon for the naked body. Furthermore the broad rim can be used to support the bent leg while shaving. The contrast between shiny white porcelain and a gray concrete wall forms another emotional aspect of Venus. Venus presents the body like a piece of art and deals with the special and highly emotional act of taking a shower.
