Idiosyncratic Framed Soakers
The Naked Bathtub is a Sunken Basin Supported by Storage

Jacuzzis are such substantial domestic features that nearly cease to be furnishings and become part of the structure of the bathroom. The Naked Bathtub is different because it actually succeeds at looking both light and mobile.

Giopato & Coombes came up with the concept for this modern soaker by exploring the possible reaction of an elastic acrylic sheet to a heavy volume of water. With the support of a sturdy structural framework, the supple material might simply expand, slump and suspend from its secured edges, exposing the smooth catenary shape of its bulging belly.

From this surround of slender scaffolding, the Naked Bathtub is enhanced with flush gunnels and open shelving. The piece embodies an unexpected lightness, further promoted by its ability to be installed anywhere in the washroom.
