Insane Carbon Fiber Bathtub Hangs Like A Hammock

June 21, 2013


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.





Thanks to Side Effect, which may include hot water burn baby, pruney fingers, or accidental drowning.

  • As a designer, i must give it props for novelty.

    However, I'm sure that for the (insane) cost it surely has, you could get a far more comfortable & luxurious tub, fit with all the kinks & whistles --massage jet streams, luminotherapy, etc.

  • If I want to get clean I get showered. Baths are for lounging in and relaxing. I couldn't relax in that. I'd be too scared the walls were about to collapse.

    Dear Splinter Works,

    Hammocks are uncomfortable.

    How do 5 of you find hammocks uncomfortable?

    I can already see the old women falling in that and not being able to get up...
