This is the carbon fiber 'Vessel' bathtub designed and built by Splinter Works. It mounts between two walls, drains through a hole in the floor, and probably costs more than a car. Obviously, it's going on the Christmas list.
At 2.7m long, Vessel is longer than a regular bathtub, leaving plenty of room to share the experience. Custom sizes are available but it is also designed so that it can be trimmed up to 20 cm to allow for flexible installation. Pictured here in black, it also available in red, blue, yellow, pink, bronze and pure silver.
What a relief! For a second there I was afraid I'd have to get a custom built bathroom to accommodate one. I'm joking, I still will. You think the walls in this place could actually support a full bathtub? I tried hanging a picture once and now my roommate wolf-whistles at me through the hole in the wall whenever I'm undressing. I'M NOT A PIECE OF MEAT, DEREK.
Hit the jump for a couple more shots.
