Friday Find - Bathtub or Armchair?

Yes, it's another wild bathtub on the blog...

This tub comes from Thomas Linssen and Studio Thol. The first time I saw the tub, I was completely enamored with the shape and form of the tub around the wooden frame... Make sure you're paying close attention.

See how the bathtub(a marble composite) is actually formed around the frame? Awesome, huh?

This is where the tub really gets it's shape. Linnsen explains that chairs are ergonomic and shaped his bathtub to follow the lines of the human body rather than just to hold the most water.

I must admit, I've been in some uncomfortable bathtubs. I like the idea of a tub that was designed specifically to be comfortable.

The frame looks startlingly like a deck chair to me... Would look great in a rustic setting!

Of course, everything has a lead time and a price. According to Studio Thol, you can have one of these with about 2 months advance notice for a cool  €12000($16,200 USD).

What do you think?


  1. Love it. In fact the only thing that would make it better is a holder for a wine glass and perhaps a beautiful woman to massage my feet.
