The Fl'eau Bathtub Appears to Overflow Even When it's Empty

There is such a great opportunity to explore the sculptural possibilities when designing a soaker. The Fl'eau Bathtub is an exquisite example of such an artistic study that makes its form follow the flow of the water within.

This concept jacuzzi was designed by Joel Roberts for the Reece Bathroom Innovation Awards of 2012 and demonstrates a wonderfully fluent use of Corian material. It's as if the tub began as a flat but flexible sheet, gradually changing shape due to the undulations of a wave beneath it.

The beautiful freestanding basin looks impossibly light for its function of containing significant quantities of water. The round-bellied Fl'eau Bathtub balances on either side by the support of gracefully drooping wings.
