They are two of life’s simplest pleasures: sitting back in a warm bath surrounded by bubbles and reclining in a hammock in an exotic location. And now, the two have been joined together to create the ultimate relaxation experience: a bath tub hammock. Known as the Vessel, the sleek-looking tub is suspended in the air like a hammock. The carbon fibre tub, designed by London-based Splinter Works, is filled using a floor standing tap before the waste water is released through the base into a floor drain.
Miles Hartwell, from Splinter Works, said: ‘Struck by the synergy between the shapes of two compelling symbols of relaxation, a hammock and a bath tub, we were inspired to develop a piece that would provide the ultimate vehicle for total escapism.

The peaceful experience of kicking-back in a hammock has been further enhanced by combining it with the immersive comfort of soaking in a hot bath. ‘By literally elevating the experience of bathing into a suspended sculpture, the bathroom has been reinvented as a contemplative sanctuary for artful relaxation.’

At 2.7m long, the Vessel is longer than a regular bathtub, leaving plenty of room to share the bathing experience. It is suspended from the walls and does not touch the floor, and is designed for use in a wet room. Stainless steel brackets fix the bathtub to the wall, which can be covered over, or left on show. The Vessel is available in red, blue, yellow, pink, bronze and pure silver.
